Praise for The Tunnel Runner:

"Trost combines elements of suspense, mystery and horror into this fast-paced adventure that also asks interesting questions about the way we choose to live and survive in the city, and what happens to those, who through no fault of their own, are discarded by mainstream society."
- Maree Kimberley 

"What Cameron has created feels like modern urban folklore."
- Mark McAuliffe

"In The Tunnel Runner, Trost effortlessly plunges us into a claustrophobic, underground world hidden mere metres beneath our feet. We experience some genuine moments of terror through the eyes of the sympathetic protagonists. But to me, the greatest pleasure was meeting some delightfully obnoxious surface walkers whose morally bankrupt actions threaten to unleash tragedy, and I wish I could have spent more time with them. Despite some occasional coarse language, this is a book I'd recommend to teenagers as well as adults."
- Amazon reader

"I read The Tunnel Runner a few months ago, and while I don't usually write reviews, I wanted to share my excitement for this gripping thriller. I love stories with trains, shady figures, barbed-wire fences, and manholes that lead to mysterious places."
- Claire Fitzpatrick

"This interesting take on Australian socio-demographics features a cinematic climax and a bittersweet denouement. Throughout every plot twist, the city of Brisbane holds the spotlight."
- Deborah Sheldon
