Description: Rachel Gaen was fed up. Fed up with wise guys who have no respect for Aboriginal heritage, culture or life itself. Skilled in martial and Aboriginal arts, Rachel can coldcock an escaping thief at fifty meters with a hunting boomerang in a rainstorm. Her knowledge of the barren stretches of the outback beyond Australia's cities and suburbs make her more skilled than the local police at sniffing out criminals and tracking them down. And she is more than a match for them, be they lone psychos or the local mafia.
Driven by a painful past, Rachel seems compelled to rectify wrongs to preserve the legacy of the land and its people. Or is it something more? Does she thrill to the chase, at her mastery over incompetent low-lifes? Is that what gets her in over her head? Her home is invaded, loved ones are threatened and suddenly she finds herself fighting for her life.
More than a roller coaster action adventure that will keep you turning the pages until its heart-stopping conclusion, Outback Reckoning is also the story of a courageous young woman who champions the innocent though she herself is soured on life, who falls in love then balks when she realizes what that love will require of her, and who, though skilled and capable, learns that just because you can take matters into your own hands, doesn’t mean you should.
