With enemies on all sides, who can Drake really trust?
British-born Joe currently resides in Perth, Western Australia. Joe attended Edith Cowan University and graduated in 2010 with a degree in Counter Terrorism, Security and Intelligence. Joe has also studied Creative and Professional Writing at Curtin University.When not writing stories, Joe's work over the past few years has involved border protection, liaisons between domestic and international military forces, private security consulting, living out of a suitcase, and travel to some interesting places dotted around the world. He is primarily a writer of urban fantasy and science fiction aimed at young adults and, when not talking about himself in the third person, enjoys devouring books at an absurdly disgusting rate and ambling over mountains. Preferably at the same time. THE RIG, Will Drake's first adventure and Joe's first book, was the joint-winner of the 2013 Hot Key Books and Guardian Young Writers Prize.

A well written, thought provoking novel should grab the reader's attention with the first line and this fast paced thriller definitely does that . . . I loved the humour . . . and the brilliant plot turns. -- Judith Palka * School Library Association *
