Charlie and Nao are strangers from different sides of the tracks. They should never have met, but one devastating incident binds them together forever.

A man is dead and now they are unwilling accomplices in his murder there’s only one thing to do: hit the road in the victim’s twin cab ute, with a bag of stolen gold stashed under the passenger seat.

Suddenly outlaws, Nao and Charlie must make their way across Australia’s remote outback using only their wits to survive. They’ll do whatever it takes to evade capture and escape with their lives . . .

Thelma & Louise for a new generation, No Country for Girls is a gritty, twisty road-trip thriller that follows two young women on the run across the harsh, unforgiving landscape of Australia.

The grit and harshness of [Australia] runs in her writer's bloodstream. This is a two-fisted road trip adventure . . . One action twist after another. Terrific fun! 10/10

Bold and badass, No Country For Girls is the kind of searingly stylish, unrelenting page-turner I just adore. I burned through the twisting plot almost as fast as Charlie and Nao light up the Australian outback'

Literary Review
A taut, evocative and utterly absorbing road-trip thriller about two young women on the run for their lives, both caught up in a landscape as full of threat and danger as the people who are after them. Unputdownable
JACOB ROSS, author of BLACK RAIN FALLING
I LOVED THIS BOOK. Thelma & Louise meets The Tourist in this pacey, surprising and relentlessly tense Aussie road trip thriller. With No Country for Girls Emma Styles is not playing around - she's staking her claim as the new queen of Outback Noir
LIZZIE POOK, author of MOONLIGHT AND THE PEARLER'S DAUGHTER
Styles's first novel starts with a bang . . . There are decided echoes of films such as Shallow Grave and Thelma & Louise in this bumpy road trip . . . The real star is the desolate outback. And, refreshing for a summer read, there isn't a luxury villa in sight
The Times
A fast-moving, cinematic debut by a new Australian author . . . Violent, picturesque and a barrel full of twists along the way, this high-octane road movie of a novel delivers on all counts

As the two leave a trail of destruction in their wake, each of their heartbreaking stories unravels as their pasts catch up with them, and they bond over life and death . . . A triumph

Scotsman
Every now and then you open a book, and you know immediately that here is something fresh and new and exciting. This novel is all of that, with extra . . . No Country for Girls is both original and brilliant, and it is hard to believe that this first-class novel by Australian-born Emma Styles, now living in the UK, is a debut
