A thriller that has all the elements for success; a surfing, martial-arts proficient and taciturn hero and a beautiful sidekick with whom he still has unresolved issues ... Fishman sets a fierce pace over almost 400 pages... This is the first in a series of thrillers featuring the enigmatic and lethal Carter."
The Age, Melbourne
"All of this makes Carter an unexpected hero type - flawed, questioning, brave with enough of the all action hero type to be believable he's quite realistic, very believable.
The relationship between Carter and Erina has the same sorts of contrasts - the attraction, their past, their willingness to put everything to one side in the pursuit of the ultimate aim, makes them again, believable. And it doesn't hurt that there's nothing decorative female about Erina - she's a strong, capable woman in her own right...
Added to the believability of the unexpected, the realistic portray of the two central characters, and a strong plot, there's a hefty dose of good, dry very Australian humour."

From the Author
I love strong female characters and wanted to make the woman in Carter's life as tough as he is. She's the one woman he can't live with or without. She helps test him to the core and brings out the best in him.
I was very pleased when one Karen Chisholm wrote a review in, Australia & NZ Crime Fiction Reviews and said, "The relationship between Carter and Erina has the same sorts of contrasts. And it doesn't hurt that there's nothing decorative female about Erina - she's a strong, capable woman in her own right."
I look forward to developing their relationship further in subsequent Carter novels.
One Amazon reviewer described you as "Lee Child with spirituality." How did this come about?
While No Man's Land is primarily designed to be a highly entertaining page-turning thriller, I did want it to work on a number of levels.
I wanted to explore the relationship between spirituality and religion. I also wanted to explore the many facets of Islam and how a relatively small number of Indonesia's two hundred and fifty million Muslims became radicalised and violent.
The fanatical Indonesian terrorist cell are the perfect opponent for Carter in this story. They are highly motivated, well organised and ruthless.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Big cast though. You'll need lots of brain cells to remember and keep track of them all.

I know nothing about surfing but somehow the author made me feel as if I was there on a board!
Look forward to reading the next book by this author.
