Fred Scully waits at the arrival gate of an international airport, anxious to see his wife and daughter.

After two years in Europe they are finally settling down. He sees a new life before them, a stable outlook again, a fresh start, a cottage in the Irish countryside that he's renovated by hand. He's waited, sweated on this reunion. He does not like to be alone - he's that kind of man. The flight lands, the doors at the airport hiss open...Scully's life falls apart.

Written with the pace of a thriller and the human understanding of a master novelist, The Riders is the novel that brought Tim Winton to international attention.
