Red Desert is the work of Paddy Magrane and is the third thriller the Shute-based author has written following Disorder and Denial.

His newest book is available on audiobook service Audible and focuses on the life of a therapist at an isolation oil concession in Iraq but things go awry when he starts enquiring about a series of unexplained deaths.

The book was selected as Audible’s Crime and Thriller Pick of the Month for May.

Mr Magrane said: “The audiobook was about to go into production when the lockdown began and I honestly thought it would never happen, particularly after the Audible studio was forced to shut down.

“But the team then found Joe Jameson, a fantastic narrator who also happens to have a home studio. His narration is first class and I’m thrilled with the result – and the chart position.”
