Winner of the 2013 Queensland Literary Award - Best Emerging Author.

When you're at the end of the line with nowhere to turn - how far would you go to protect the one you love?

A man is found dead in an inner-city suburb, a police officer walks the blurry line between duty and loyalty, and a young woman from the wrong side of the tracks is on the run. Ana soon becomes a suspect in the murder investigation. As sole carer for her younger sister, she is desperately trying to stay ahead of the law. In a surprising twist, the detective in charge of the case is no stranger and Ana is forced to face her past and the things she has left behind. Unsure of who she can trust and isolated by her crime, Ana is drawn into a passionate affair that breaks all the rules.

From the winner of the 2013 Queensland Literary Awards - Best Emerging Author category, Gap combines a gripping crime thriller with a style evocative of Dorothy Porter's cult classic, The Monkey's Mask.


'A courageous portrait of the ways ordinary people struggle to make sense of the limits their lives sometimes set on them.'
