Australian Crime Author Gabriel Bergmoser

At 26 years of age, Australian author Gabriel Bergmoser is already something of a phenomenon in his own country. He’s won the Peter Ustinov and Kenneth Branagh awards for his scriptwriting, and has three young adult thrillers to his name. Now the Melbourne-based writer has fixed his focus on the crime fiction genre with The Hunted, a tense and bloody pursuit through wasteland in a place that could easily be called The Middle of Nowhere, Australia.

About The Book

Thomas Brogan is a serial killer. With a trail of bodies in his wake and the police hot on his heels, it seems like Thomas has nowhere left to hide. That is until he breaks into an abandoned house at the end of a terrace on a quiet street. And when he climbs up into the loft, he realises that he can drop down into all the other houses through the shared attic space.
That’s when the real fun begins. Because the one thing that Thomas enjoys even more than killing is playing games with his victims – the lonely old woman, the bickering couple, the tempting young newlyweds. And his new neighbours have more than enough dark secrets to make this game his best one yet…
Do you fear The Resident? Soon you’ll be dying to meet him.
