From Tom Gilling-The New York Times Notable author of The Adventures of Miles and Isabel-comes a skillful, compulsively readable modern thriller about re-inventing one's identity. It was just a harmless lie-to say he was driving Danny Grogan's car when it was caught speeding down the Sydney streets on New Year's Eve-and Danny's father, a billionaire real estate tycoon, has promised to make it worth his while. But when former reporter Nick Carmody stands up in court to profess his guilt, it suddenly becomes clear that he doesn't understand what he's admitting to-until it's too late. Nick's 'good deed' hurls him into a world of secrets, drugs, corruption, and murder. To save his life, he has no choice but to disappear and become someone else. What he doesn't realize is that a new identity can be even more dangerous than the one left behind. As his new life in Melbourne veers out of control, Nick has to question whether chance alone is responsible, or whether more sinister forces are at work. A darkly comic page-turner, Seven Mile Beach is a haunting modern fable from a seductive novelist who never fails to thrill and surprise.
