O2 Portrait paperback 800x1067

Book one in the Dylan Malloy series



A dramatic coming-of-age thriller to grip your mind and capture your heart

Dylan Malloy has retreated from the world, throwing himself into a second choice job in Australia’s remote outback. His days as a self-sufficient loner, however, are rapidly ending.

Dylan knows he won’t make his twenty-fifth birthday without life-saving surgery. His one-and-only chance means a desperate journey to hospital—today—and the last flight to Perth departs in just a few minutes. 

But the thought of boarding that 737 is as painful as the sinister disease destroying his body from within, and as dark as the underlying truths he fights to keep secret.

As he battles his fears about the journey and his operation, Dylan has no clue his many ghosts are about to return in ways he could never imagine. Dylan’s life choices and turbulent history will culminate on flight JW-238 in a seat gripping climax you won’t see coming. 

Will Dylan’s next actions decide his fate, or is he destined to die young and alone?

The thrilling drama of O2 will have you questioning how our lives play out. Do we randomly stumble through it all, or is there a predetermined script?
