So when, later in his journey, Shaw passes the track leading to Patterson’s Creek, the place where Katie said she would spend a few of days before heading deeper into the desert to photograph rock art, he decides to take the small detour in the hope of seeing her again. It will be only be moments before she finds him. This, aside from a brief conversation with the local policeman in the nearest town, Yogabilla, who informs Shaw of the danger of the going too far down that track in his tiny hatchback, is all the sundry material we are given. From here on the short novel is given over to a breathless, white-knuckle, real-time account.

“He drank a lot of beer in these scenes. A lot of beer. So I asked our prop man to stock up on non-alcoholic beer. On the very first day with Chips, he had a scene where he drank two pints in one take. He poured the first down then spat a bit out in disgust. He said, ‘Ted, what is this?’ I said ‘It’s non-alcoholic beer.’ He said ‘I can’t act with non-alcoholic beer. I need real beer.’”
