About this book

Caught

Lisa Moore

Now a major CBC original television series starring Allan Hawco (Republic of Doyle), Paul Gross (Alias Grace, Hyena Road, Passchendaele), Tori Anderson (Open Heart, No Tomorrow), Eric Johnson (Fifty Shades Darker, The Knick, Smallville), Charlotte Sullivan (Chicago Fire, Disappearance), Greg Bryk (Bitten, Frontier) and Enuka Okuma (Rookie Blue, Battle of Sexes). Produced by Take The Shot Productions. Executive producers include Allan Hawco, Perry Chafe, John Vatcher, Alex Patrick, Peter Blackie, Rob Blackie, and Michael Levine.

It’s June, 1978, and David Slaney can be sure of only one thing: he can’t get caught, not this time. He’s escaped from prison and has got to make good on the heist that went wrong, win back the woman he loves, and make a big enough profit to buy himself a new life. But first, he’s got to get himself across a vast country full of watchful eyes, booby traps, and friends who might be foes.

Rife with bravado and betrayal, bad weather and worse seas, love, lust, undercover agents, the collusion of governments, innocence and the loss thereof, and many, many bales of marijuana, Caught is exuberant, relentlessly suspenseful, and utterly unique — an adventure novel the way only Lisa Moore could write it.
