Description

"Action-packed from the first sentence. Outback Creed is outstanding."|
–Robert Dugoni New York Times Bestselling Author of the Tracy Crosswhite series.

A city lawyer and an Aboriginal boy become targets in a high-stakes conspiracy.

Award-winning narrator Steve Shanahan (Jane Harper's Bestsellers The Dry, Force of Nature, The Lost Man and more) delivers a riveting performance, bringing the Australian outback and its characters to life in a heart-stopping thriller loaded with action and shocking twists.

Tom McLaren is the go-to negotiator for a corporate law firm, and is accustomed to success and all its trappings. His skills are put to the test when he and his colleagues head to the outback, hoping to persuade Aboriginal Elders to give up their land to a powerful mining company. The land is worth billions, but the Elders won’t budge, and Tom faces the rare prospect of failure. Yet there are hidden forces at play that will stop at nothing to make sure a deal is done, even if that means taking the life of an Aboriginal boy. When Tom and his colleagues discover the shocking plot, they also become targets, and the result is murder. In his frantic hunt for answers, Tom realizes his most dangerous enemy may be closer than he feared. With relentless killers closing in fast, Tom must uncover the truth…before it’s too late!

Outback creed by Jonathan MaCpherson. Narrated by Steve Shanahan. A city lawyer and an Aboriginal boy become targets in a high-stakes conspiracy. I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I really felt like I was there. I didn't have a favourite character although I was rooting for David. I loved the ending. 5*. Thanks to city Beach books and netgalley for this audiobook.

Audiobook Review: Outback Creed by Jonathan Macpherson Narrated by Steve Shanahan Published by City Beach Books, November 11, 2021 ★★★★☆ (4.25 Stars) Audiobook narration: Outstanding performance by Steve Shanahan, the award-winning narrator of Jane Harper novels, whose involvement is what primarily attracted me to this excellent audio-novella. ----- Creed, a fictional aboriginal town near Derby, West Kimberley shire, a port town 2,200 NNE of Perth; 3,000 WNW of Sydney. In an action-packed gem of a short read, author Jonathan Macpherson takes the reader through a fight for survival in the harsh outback of coastal Northwestern Australia for land rights to U-235 deposits, also known as uranium, with cultural glimpses into Australian aboriginal traditions, pitting corporate interests allied with bent cops and corrupt politicians against unyielding aboriginal elders determined to protect their traditional country, themselves allied with an accidental hero - a corporate lawyer whose mettle is about to be tested to limits he hadn't known. As with short novellas, the characters are a bit caricatured, but the plot is crafted and delivered in a way that one could feel for the protagonist(s) through the din of non-stop life /death encounters. Delightful short read, slightly reminiscent of Paul Hogan's "Crocodile Dundee" - without the one-liners. Review based on an ARC from City Beach Books / Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) and NetGalley.
