The Desert Run
One little crime doesn’t make you a criminal? Does it?
Jake is doing everything he can to lead a normal life. But normality doesn’t seem that interested. And while he’s failing to land a decent job, his student debt just grows and grows…
His best friend Ben has a simple, if technically illegal, solution. Together they will drive to the Atlas Mountains and fill Ben’s van with cheap, high-quality dope. They’ll drive home, past two international borders, and somehow find someone to buy it. If they succeed they can clear their debts and start their working lives with a clean financial slate. And a gap-year adventure to keep them going through the tedious nine to five.
But if Jake thought normal life was hard to crack, he’s certainly underestimated international drug smuggling.
Tense, gripping, filled with where-did-that-come-from twists, The Desert Run is an exciting thriller that lets you experience the irresistible call of adventure.

Gregg Dunnett worked as Staff Writer and Photographer for the best-selling windsurfing magazine Boards for nearly ten years. He was sent around the world testing equipment and reporting on competitions and locations. Eventually Boards went bust, which wasn’t entirely his fault, and he turned to writing novels instead. His first to be released was the psychological thriller ‘The Wave at Hanging Rock’. This reached the number one position in the Amazon free listings in the UK, US and Australia, and the top one hundred in the Amazon.co.uk paid charts.
His second book ‘The Desert Run’ was released in May 2017 and explores whether one little crime is enough to make someone a criminal.
His third novel is a psychological thriller called ‘The Things you find in Rockpools’ and will be released in late 2017.
Gregg lives on the UK’s south coast with his partner Maria and their two young children Alba and Rafa.

How do you make a book cover? Get a pretty picture, stick the title over the top. Job done, right? That's what I thought anyway, but (once again, in the exciting world of being a self published author) I was wrong. That one image has to do so much. It has to attract a...
