A thrilling tale of mystery and suspense from the bestselling author of Charlotte Pass
After Justice Maurice Tempest dies violently in the Glenrock State Conservation Area in Newcastle, local detective Senior Sergeant Callan O’Connor is urgently called to the scene.
Days later a second body is found in the same location, turning what had looked like a revenge killing into so much more.
Former political journalist Angela Avery has been spending a lot of time at the Hunter Valley Prison interviewing a soon-to-be-released forger, and when O’Connor’s investigation reveals an interest in him Angela is determined to protect both her source and her fledgling relationship with O’Connor.
Meanwhile, two young female lawyers from a law firm in Sydney have disappeared.
Are the missing lawyers connected with the dead judge? Can O’Connor unravel the connections before the body count rises further? And how much does Angela Avery really know?
