The Thorogood family has travelled from Omaha, Nebraska to the Northern Territory of Australia to experience the outdoors, enjoy the open road, and help 19-year-old Eve overcome her addiction to painkillers.

The outback is every bit as spectacular as they had imagined — until they run into a psychopathic killer called Mick Taylor who doesn't much like American tourists. Or anyone else, come to that.

Eve's mother, father and little brother die at the madman's hands, and she would die along with them but for a stroke of luck and her remarkable fitness and resilience.

A Darwin detective named Sullivan Hill is assigned to the case and finds her story of a murdering stranger hard to swallow. Then again, there have been plenty of unsolved murders in the outback over the years — could there really be a serial killer on the loose?

Sullivan tries to send Eve home to the States, but she can't bear to leave. She strikes out on her own, determined to find the killer and avenge her family.
