Prohibited Zone by Alastair Sarre
'We're tryin' to round 'em all up before they get lost and die of thirst. Your'e not harbourin' any fugitives in the back, are, Westie?'
'Not that I know of.'
Steve West, mining engineer and ex-footy star, just wants a dirty weekend in town, but he can't stop people telling him their secrets. When crusading Kara incites a breakout in the desert, Westie finds himself her reluctant accomplice. Soon he's got a runaway asylum seeker in tow, and all the world, it seems, on his tail.
There is a way out - but it's in the prohibited zone.
