‘Ever since I got here, I‘ve been scanning the courtroom, waiting for you. Even after everything, it is still always you, inside my head, inside me. Will it ever be any different?’

Ten years ago, sixteen-year-old Gemma Toombs was kidnapped from Bangkok Airport by an infatuated drifter, Tyler MacFarlane, who took her to a secret den in the Australian desert. Now her name is Kate Stone and it’s her turn to confront Ty and try to find answers to the questions that have obsessed her since her ordeal. What is the legacy of this coercive relationship? Who holds the cards now? In the confusion of past and present, will Kate remain trapped in a deranged dance of desire and revenge? Or will she regain control and find release?

Both a courtroom drama and a road trip in the searing heat of the West Australian desert, Release is the story of two people confronting each other, each intent on destruction and survival.

Companion to Stolen

Release is my first book for adults and is a companion to my bestselling YA novel Stolen. It’s a gripping psychological thriller that explores a young woman’s discovery of the complicated truth about a relationship that once seemed alluring.

  • I cannot wait to read this book, I first read Stolen when it came out, as a young preteen in the corner of the local university library. It left such an impact on me and made for severe inspiration in most of my senior HSC essays. Very excited!!

  • I am so excited! I have been obsessed with Stolen for a very long time now, and I loved every second of it. I will never forget how emotional I got when I finished reading it. I am so looking forward for the sequel, and I am very curious to see what is going to happen next. I cannot wait.

  • I am so excited. I’ve turned this book into a lesson when I was a student aid in high school. It was fascinating seeing all the opinions everyone had on what was to come next. I’m very intrigued to see how the story progresses in this next book.
