Proving yet again how desperately desperately desperately behind in my reading I am ... I've had this book lurking for a while now. Rectifying my tardiness now.
From the Blurb:
An English backpacker heads north for sun, women and a shot at making a fortune working the prawn trawlers. Mick is looking for adventure, but hitching a ride with the enigmatic Dan leads him into more trouble than even the most reckless traveller could hope for. As the pair speed their way thorugh the apocalyptic landscape, in a spiral of escalating violence, Dan reveals the world as seen through his eyes, and exposes Mick's true nature.
