Anthony Masters - Hunted

Two gripping stories from the master of adventure.

Bali Rai- The Crew
The Crew are a group of friends who find a sports bag full of cash in an alleyway behind the house of one of the gang. They aren't stupid. They know that the money almost certainly belongs to local drug dealers. What they don't know is what to do with the money. Should they keep it or hand it in to the police? Either way, they will be in trouble with people that they shouldn't upset.This is a fast-paced story told mostly by one of the boys in the gang with some chapters from the viewpoint of one of the girls. The dialogue is so real that you can hear the characters talking as you read. A believable and exciting story.
