“Darcy Daniel’s award-winning thriller THE DEVILS CRADLE reminded me of the first time I read Sandra Brown. From the opening page to the last, the novel is fraught with tension, suspense, and pathos and kept me reading long into the night. Here is a writer destined for great things.” —James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Demon Crown
On Australia’s island state, more than one species of Tasmanian Devil exists...
Beneath the surface of Nina Holt’s perfect marriage lurks a life of terror inflicted upon her by her politically powerful husband Michael and his brother Greg, a sadistic detective. For over a decade they have managed to keep Nina imprisoned, using her to satisfy their every whim.
Worse still, the only light in her life—her 9-year-old son, Sam—considers Michael a hero. When Sam imitates Michael’s violence by lashing out at her, Nina knows it’s time for both of them to escape before Sam truly turns into the monster Michael is grooming him to become.
After crashing her car in her haste to escape, kind motorist Case Herder offers her help. Unaware that he has his own plans for her, Nina accepts, igniting a deadly game of cat and mouse as they flee across Tasmania with Sam.
As Michael and Greg relentlessly hunt them down to Cradle Mountain, Nina finds herself with nowhere left to run. Cornered, she has no choice but to face evil head-on.
Devils at Cradle
The Tasmanian Devil — a fascinating Aussie animal which happens to be the largest living marsupial carnivore. Yes, they eat meat!! They are around the size of a small stocky dog. The best place to learn about these creatures is at Devils Cradle. Devils Cradle is located in Cradle Mountain, Tasmania. Cradle Mountain on the western side of Tassie and directions on where they are located can be found here. We decided to participate in the night-time feeding tour.
Introducing "Nookie" Thanks The Nook Backpackers!! What a handsomedevil. We would like to congratulate and send out a huge thank you to the team and their guests at The Nook Backpackers in Hobart for their recent corporate sponsorship of one of our now two year old breeding males. They have chosen to name him "Nookie" after their Tasmanian devil mascot.
This was the highlight of our entire Australia trip. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was great to hear about the amazing work the centre does. We were followed around by a friendly wombat throughout the visit. The final treat was that we got to stroke a partially hand reared devil. Although the centre is open all day, it is best to go at feeding time when you get a guided tour and a lot of additional info. Really interesting.
