Review copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

From beginning to end this book is a page turner … leaving you hungry for more.

Bush Redemption is the sequel to Blood Gold Revenge where the Hatchet River Station massacre cleaned out one of Australia’s biggest drug labs, so retribution is naturally high on the agenda for some.

Many are assumed dead …. Or are they? Who has survived, and what do they have in store for their victims, who may not all be as innocent as perceived. This tale of courage, betrayal &madness will have you on edge as the story unfolds.

Tim has found a gold reef in the Northern Australian outback that puts the fabled Lassiters reef to shame, but there are many parties trying to also stake their claim on this rich find. Murder, sabotage & torture all come into play in the race for ownership.

Bush Redemption is the sequel to Blood Gold Revenge by Dave Wright, which I reviewed back in January 2016. I enjoyed the first book, so when the author contacted me about the second book, I was eager to read it.

After the Hatchet River Station massacre cleaned out one of Australia’s biggest drug labs, retribution is high on the agenda for some of the survivors. It takes a while before we find out who has survived, and what they have in store for their victims.

The book jumps between several characters – Grace, C, Tim, Meg, and overall, it does feature a lot of characters to keep track of. Since it’s been a while since I read the first book, I had trouble remembering who was who and what their connections where to each other. The large cast of characters added a lot of depth to the story.

I particularly liked Tim’s storyline, who has found a gold reef that several parties are trying to stake their claim on, which leads to unforeseen consequences, murder and betrayal. I also liked seeing the characters interact with one another.

This is an intriguing thriller featuring multiple, complex characters, and a solid storyline.

    Thanks Majanka for reading my sequel,and your thoughts.Yes I agree that the first book Blood Gold Revenge should be read first and in conjunction with the sequel, Bush Redemption. As they do follow on back to back. Appreciate and happy with your review Majanka, yes the first book was, if not more, based on actual fact that occurred here in North Queensland Australia. Cheers Dave Wright.
