First Published on May 23 2016
At Michaelmas 1786, Thomas Nash’s peaceful Norfolk farming existence is shattered when, instead of the expected restoration of his family’s fortunes, he and his wife, Martha, are falsely accused and sentenced to transportation to New Holland. Both are unaware that the terrifying ordeal of that disastrous voyage is merely the beginning of their torture and torment. Thomas’ nemesis and accuser, the new Lord Rainforde, obsessed with his mad desires, has sent paid assassins to the new colony to murder the farmer, his wife and his son. Scourged and dragged away to die, Thomas jumps from a moving ship into shark-filled waters in a desperate escape attempt, during which he is shot, terribly mutilated and left for dead. With the help of an aborigine he survives, to live as a fugitive in the Outback, with one impossible urge driving him relentlessly: REVENGE!
