"Fishman is the real deal. He knows how to sustain a cracking pace from start to finish, so much so that I found myself saying after each chapter, "just one more."
Alexander Gilly, author of Devil's Harbour
Special operative Russell Carter has turned his back on everything he ever believed in. A year ago he walked away from the order and its leader, Thomas Wing, a man he once regarded as a father. Since then he's been living the good life, surfing at Lennox Head and trying to forget his past.
On Christmas Day Thomas is kidnapped from a remote bush property near the Queensland border, and Carter is sucked straight back into the violent world he left behind. Now an Indonesian terrorist cell is trying to kill him -- and every other member of the order.
With Carter and the order out of the way, the terrorists hope to carry off a daring attack on Sydney Harbour on New Year's Eve - just days away -- when huge crowds gather on the water and foreshore to celebrate.
Carter is forced to team up with Thomas's daughter, Erina -- the only woman he has ever loved, and who he abandoned without saying goodbye. Together they must travel into the wilds of Indonesia and back again in a desperate bid to save Thomas - and the lives of thousands of others.
"Several of the action sequences are portrayed in such granular detail that often time dilates ... As it draws to its conclusion the conflict explodes like a display of fireworks." Nick Lathouris - Co-writer Mad Max IV
Praise for No Man's Land
"Fantastic read. Loved Russell Carter's dry humour. All the characters really jumped off the page, the action was relentless and the philosophy of the book, both from the Australian and Indonesian perspectives, really had me engaged from beginning to end. " Fred Talib - Good Reads
"From the first chapter I loved this story...this is not my typical choice of books...the author had me on a journey with Carter and Erina...their passion to make a difference, save the world with such courage and amazing expertise whilst also grappling with their own vulnerabilities. A truly oceanic and transformative inner and outer journey!" Ingrid Studholme - Good Reads
"Roland Fishman is the next Lee Child with spirituality...an unputdownable story that I just didn't want to end."June Laffey - Cannes Gold Lion Award Winner
"No Man's Land is a thriller with real heart - gripping, action-packed and at times romantic and completely charming. A hard book to put down." Zaggam - Good Reads
"I rarely read novels in the action/thriller genre. But No Man's Land came highly recommended, so I gave it a go - and I'm glad I did. Hopefully a sequel is on its way!" Denise Imwold - Good Reads
"From the opening paragraph it was hard to put the book down as I had to keep reading to find out what happened next." Elizabeth Spratt - Good Reads
