Spineless Press, 2000
Three petty crims embark on a road trip that goes horribly wrong. Older than his Maori companions, Pakeha Morton calls all the shots, until a brush with the Mongrel Mob has the three of them fleeing into the bush. Exhausted, starving and suffering severe sunstroke, Morton must fight for his sanity, as his friends turn on him.
