Already Dead is another heart-stopping ride of sheer suspense from the author of the bestselling Beyond Fear. Miranda shrank away from him, arm pressed to the driver's door. 'What's your name?' 'I'm already dead. That's my name now. That's what they called me. I'm Already Dead.' Journalist Miranda Jack is finally attempting to move on from the death of her husband by relocating up the coast with her young daughter, Zoe. Then a single event changes everything.

Forced to drive at high speed up the motorway, Miranda listens to the frantic, paranoid rants of Brendan Walsh, a man who claims he's being chased and that they're both now running for their lives. Two hours later her ordeal is over in the most shocking fashion. Miranda is safe but she can't simply walk away - not without knowing the truth about that terrifying drive. As a journalist Miranda has always asked questions. But this time the questions are dangerous - and the answers might get her killed ...
