Share Article

Author Reynold Conger presents a gripping novel that will make every tourist look over their shoulder.

In Reynold Conger’s exhilarating book Chased Across Australia, readers will be enthralled as they go through each mind-blowing page. This provocative, stimulating and action-packed fiction features the dangers of international travel where tourists are inevitably subject to the prying eyes of terrorists. Threatening and exploiting tourists in order to gain control of illicit activities, trained terrorists are not frugal about going to the ends of the world in order to execute their fiercest mission.

According to the European Journal of Social Sciences, terrorism has a major impact on tourism. Moreover, tourism is considered as one of the largest, fast growing and job-generating industries in the world. Due to its nature which includes traveling from one place to another and from one country to another, tourists are at great risk for critical hazards caused by different elements, which include not only politics and international relationships, but also criminal activities.

Tourists are the most appealing and the number one target for performing obscure international operations, for they have two things that make them the perfect victims: access to foreign territory and at the same time, vulnerability in an unfamiliar place. Like a will-o’-the-wisp leading them into the perilous hands of terrorists, this susceptibility works to their disadvantage.

In Conger’s exciting and stimulating page-turner, American tourists are being chased across Australia by terrorists because their laptop contains files the terrorists need for a bomb plot in Sydney. Of course, the Americans think the laptop contains only photos and personal documents. The terrorists desperately try eclectic amounts of treachery and deceit such as stalking, burglary, seduction, blackmail, ambush and a high speed, helter-skelter car chase, yet albeit all these sordid attempts they still end up in vain. Readers of this gripping tale will definitely want to know how the protagonists were able to survive and evade these series of life-threatening quagmires. Perhaps a series of indispensable and serendipitous luck is on their side, or it is plausible that a greater and more powerful divine force follows their every track as they are being chased across Australia.
