Jake is doing everything he can to lead a normal life. But normality doesn’t seem that interested. And while he's failing to land a decent job, his student debt just grows and grows...
His best friend Ben has a simple, if technically illegal, solution. Together they will drive to the Atlas Mountains and fill Ben’s van with cheap, high-quality dope. They'll drive home, past two international borders, and somehow find someone to buy it. If they succeed they can clear their debts and start their working lives with a clean financial slate. And a gap-year adventure to keep them going through the tedious nine to five.
But if Jake thought normal life was hard to crack, he’s certainly underestimated international drug smuggling.
Tense, gripping, filled with where-did-that-come-from twists, The Desert Run is an exciting thriller that lets you experience the irresistible call of adventure.
Gregg Dunnett’s first book The Wave at Hanging Rock was downloaded a quarter of a million times and nominated for the Chanticleer best thriller of 2016. The Desert Run is his second novel.
