On Dangerous Ground
Sue’s first novel was published in 2006.
It’s devastating enough when Pru’s husband admits to a long-term affair over what should have been a romantic dinner to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Then when her daughter, Molly, leaves for Vietnam on a Gap Year project, Pru knows her family life is shattered for good.
Just as she’s picking up the pieces, an email brings news that Molly has become involved with a group of political activists and is in serious danger.
Arriving in this beautiful but alien land, Pru embarks on a desperate search for her recalcitrant daughter. Alone and out of her depth, she meets Ben who is intelligent, charismatic but damaged; a veteran of the US war. As the two of them tackle corrupt police, Pru discovers an inner strength she’d not known she possessed.
