In Conversation with Gabriel Bergmoser

Portrait of author with book title

An isolated, empty ski resort in the off-season. A woman who doesn’t want to be found. A man who may not be who he appears to be. A game of cat and mouse – with deadly consequences.

On the run from a controlling husband and his underworld associates in Melbourne, Charlotte has adopted a new identity and found a job as an off-season caretaker in a tiny, deserted alpine resort. Some dangerous people are looking for Charlotte and so she’s lying low, tending to the lodges, happy to be alone, but jumping every time a floor creaks or the wind whistles through the empty buildings. She’s trying to convince herself she’s okay, that she got away. But then strange things start happening around the resort. And Charlotte starts to realise that every escape route is being sealed off, one by one.

From Gabriel Bergmoser, the master of propulsive, page-turning storytelling, The Caretaker will have readers second-guessing themselves at every turn. What’s real and what isn’t? Who’s dangerous and who isn’t? And who will survive? A menacing, nail-biting, nerve-racking psychological thriller.
