Within the treacherous caves of Undara, a betrayal will test the bonds of friendship and family. A page-turning new eco-adventure for readers who love Di Morrissey.

When entomologist Emlyn Rees arrives at Hidden Valley she wants nothing more than to escape her marriage breakdown by burying herself in the research team's hunt for new species of insects in the depths of the dramatic Undara lava tubes. However, little does she suspect she will be the key to solving a mystery that's more than one hundred years old.

Travis Carlyle is initially resistant to letting some city folks tramp over his cattle station, but soon the researchers' findings and a growing friendship with Emlyn bring opportunities to turn around his struggling farm. With a broken marriage behind him and children to care for, Travis needs to plan for the future and this could be his family's best chance.

But when things start going wrong for the farm and around the dig site, Emlyn and Travis are at a loss to understand why. Are they cursed with bad luck, or is there a more sinister force at play? Are the tall tales of enigmatic stockman Bluey turning true? As the unseen saboteur grows bolder, Emlyn and Travis are caught in a race against time to save the station ... and their lives.

About the author

Annie Seaton lives near the beach on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. Her career and studies have spanned the education sector for most of her working life, including a Masters Degree in Education, and working as an academic research librarian, a high school principal and a university tutor until she took early retirement and fulfilled a lifelong dream of a full-time writing career. Since 2014 Annie has been voted Author of the Year (2014) and Best Established Author (2015 and 2017) in the AusRom Today.com Reader's Choice Awards. In 2018 Whitsunday Dawn was voted Book of the Year by AusRom readers, and also finalled in the ARRA Romantic Suspense book of the year awards.

Each winter, Annie and her husband leave the beach to roam the remote areas of Australia for story ideas and research. In 2016 they visited the Undara lava tubes. The Undara lava tubes stretch for 160 kilometres—indeed Undara is an Aboriginal word for ‘a long way'. Ancient roof collapses have formed a network of caves where plants and wildlife thrive in unique ecosystems. This fascinating geological marvel inspired Undara, and the story of Emlyn Rees, and the Carlyle family.

Readers can contact Annie through her website, annieseaton.net or find her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
