What happens when you bring together a group of cross-continental strangers to face their deepest fears? In her new novel Fearless, Fiona Higgins answers this question in spades, enthralling the reader with complicated characters, fascinating scenarios and consistent storytelling.
Set in the tropics of Bali, each character is pushed out of their comfort zone quite literally, as they seek to overcome their deepest insecurities by attending a fear retreat. Exploring common fears, such as public speaking, heights, snakes and death, exceptional circumstances and unusual pairings will leave you salivating for more.
Springing from the author’s own observations of living in Indonesia, Fearless is rich in cultural imagery and complex themes. There’s a lot to like about this out-of-the-box thriller, and you’ll be stunned by the unexpected conclusion. Jessica Morris
