• Poison Orchids

    Number #1 Amazon audiobook, Jan 2020

    Two broke young backpackers are grateful to find fruitpicking work at a farm, but something seems very strange about the owner and his workers.

    Backpackers Gemma and Hayley hitchhike for days to make it to the remote Llewellyn Farm. The owner, Tate Llewellyn, welcomes them in. Kind and charismatic, Tate seems to spend most of his time cultivating rare orchids in his greenhouse.

    The weeks go on, a blur of fruit-picking, parties, campfires and wading beneath waterfalls in the nearby hot springs. Tate calls the girls his orchids…his pretty orchids…

    Until the night the girls find themselves on a dark highway, bruised and bloodied.

    How did everything go so wrong?

    Senior Detective Bronwen McKay and psychologist Megan Arlotti question the terrified girls. But Hayley and Gemma are telling two very different stories of what happened to them over the past three months.

    Which story is the truth and what are the girls afraid to tell?
