Thriller author L.A. Larkin is renowned for going to extreme lengths to research her books. Her travels to Antarctica fuelled her thrillers Thirst and Devour.
For her latest book, Prey, she travelled to South Africa, where she learned how to fire a rifle and patrol reserve fences at night; and how to collect wildlife poo, a skill she believes may come in handy in future.
Prey sees return of resourceful investigative journalist Olivia Wolfe who was described by Sue Turnbull in The Age as, 'a new breed of female heroine bounding into the hitherto masculine preserve of the action thriller.'
James Phelan describes Larkin as 'a world-class thriller writer;' and her books have been likened to those of Michael Crichton by The Guardian, and Alistair MacLean by The Times.
Larkin is author of The Genesis Flaw, Thirst, and Devour, and also writes humorous mysteries as Louisa Bennet.
