Honey Brown lives in country Victoria with her husband and two children. Her debut novel, Red Queen, was published in 2009 to critical acclaim and won a 2009 Aurealis Award. Her second, much-anticipated novel, The Good Daugher (2010), was longlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award 2011 and shortlisted for the 2011 Barbara Jefferis Award.
Trudy and Bruce Harrison have a happy marriage, a successful business, and three teenage children. One fateful day they take the winding coastal route home, and visit the Ocean View Gallery, perched on the cliff edge. It's not listed in any tourist pamphlet. The artist runs the gallery alone. There are no other visitors. Within the maze of rooms the lone couple begin to feel uneasy – and with good reason.
Trudy and Bruce will be ripped from the safe, secure fabric of their life and will have their world turned upside down and shaken. Attacked, trapped and brutalised, they barely escape the gallery with their lives – only to find there's no real getting away.
