And up until now, I'd been mildly impressed with my ability to cope.'A gripping fantasy set on the shifting boundary between what ...is real and what is legend.

              Award-winning journalist Will McCormick has it all. Money, a beautiful family, and a house in the picture-perfect resort of Queenstown in New Zealand. Will also has a dark secret. The story that made him famous years ago didn't quite happen the way he told it, and now someone ...from his past seems determined to make him pay. When his five-year-old daughter Lizzy vanishes, Will's world comes crashing down. Her disappearance sends Will trawling through his past for clues about who has taken his little girl. It's a journey of self-discovery that ultimately leaves him questioning his own sanity. Will is a compulsive liar, a serial cheat, and a fabulist. Actions have consequences. The innocent suffer. He can't escape his past. He can, however, choose what he will do next, and maybe - just maybe - find redemption. But will anyone believe him if he finally tells the truth? "An absorbing kidnapping tale inspired by true life and steeped in bleakness." - Kirkus Reviews "Think Kathy Reichs and her Tempe Brennan, Jonathan Kellerman and his Alex Delaware, or Dervla McTiernan's Cormac Reilly...

              What do you do when you meet a tohunga makutu? You run. When reality dissolves and myths and legends come alive? You run faster. And when the dead come to life and blood debts have to be paid, will you have the courage to do what must be done? Matiu Douglas has a bone tiki he sto...le from a tangi. His father's important new client wants it. Badly. And he has some very nasty friends. When Mat is forced to flee for his life, an unexpected meeting with a girl called Pania sets his world spinning. Suddenly he's running through the bush with a girl-clown, a dog who is way too human, and a long-dead warrior. Fearful creatures from legend are rising up around him, and Mat faces a terrifying ordeal. And there is nowhere left to hide...not even in another world. A breathtaking adventure set in two parallel New Zealands, from exciting new author David Hair. David, who is from Wellington, is currently living in India. The Bone Tiki is his first novel.
