The Shawshank Redemption meets No Country for Old Men in the breathtaking new novel from international bestseller Michael Robotham -- already receiving rave reviews, this is the most original, compelling thriller you'll read all year.

Why would a man escape from prison the day before he's due to be released?

Audie Palmer has spent a decade in prison for an armed robbery in which four people died, including two of the gang. Seven million dollars has never been recovered and everybody believes that Audie knows where the money is.

For ten years he has been beaten, stabbed, throttled and threatened almost daily by prison guards, inmates and criminal gangs, who all want to answer this same question, but suddenly Audie vanishes, the day before he's due to be released.

Everybody wants to find Audie, but he's not running. Instead he's trying to save a life . . . and not just his own.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I love this guy's books. Try this one and you'll see why * Lee Child *
One of the best thrillers you will read this year * Financial Times *
Life or Death is a nerve-shredding thriller with the heart and soul so often missing from lesser crime and suspense novels. I couldn't stop reading, yet I didn't want Audie's story to end. Robotham is an absolute master. * Stephen King *
[A] superbly exciting thriller... Beautifully written and full of poignancy * Sunday Mirror *
Start reading Life or Death and you'll want to stay curled up in an armchair with one of the best thrillers you'll read this year * Good Book Guide *
Damn near perfect * Weekend Sport *
