Audie Palmer has spent a decade in prison for an armed robbery in which four people died, including two of the gang. Seven million dollars has never been recovered and everybody believes that Audie knows where the money is.

For ten years he has been beaten, stabbed, throttled and threatened almost daily by prison guards, inmates and criminal gangs, who all want to answer this same question, but suddenly Audie vanishes, the day before he's due to be released.

Everybody wants to find Audie, but he's trying to save a life . . . and not just his own.

Reviews for Life or Death

LIFE OR DEATH is a nerve-shredding thriller with the heart and soul so often missing from lesser crime and suspense novels. I couldn't stop reading, yet I didn't want Audie's story to end. Robotham is an absolute master. Will have you turning the pages compulsively - The Times Robotham doesn't just make me scared for his characters, he makes my heart ache for them Superbly exciting ... a terrific read - Guardian Heart-stopping, heart-breaking and heart-wrenching He writes in a voice with a haunting sense of soul
