Originally published: London: Orion, 2011

After caring for his mother in her last days, Alex has gone off around the world to travel and, perhaps, recapture some of his lost youth. Beginning in Indonesia, the idea of finding himself sounds appealing, but he soon finds himself in real trouble. It starts with a bus crash on a terrifying mountain road where, lucky to escape with his life, Alex loses everything else, even his identity. But then he meets Domino, a beautiful girl who takes him under her wing. At first it's an intoxicating adventure, but Alex starts to realize that danger follows her around. As they head to the remote community of free spirits that Domino calls home, it seems there's trouble in paradise. The ideals of the camp seem honorable'a simple life, shared by friends in a beautiful place hidden from the world. But Domino has no answers for the questions that are forming in Alex's mind: Why do the local villagers hate them so much? Why are people leaving the camp in the dead of night? And what are the strange shapes lurking just beyond the clearing?
