WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Fall 2015 — Best Thriller
When authorities fail to identify human remains uncovered after a cyclone ravages the Western Australian coastline, Martin and Claire are sent to Broome, a popular holiday destination, far from major population centres. Posing as new arrivals, the SOC agents (offshoot of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation) attempt to merge with the locals in an effort to bring the killer to justice.
Lulled by the soporific influences of the sun, sand and surf, time seems to have no meaning for the two agents, and the investigation drifts from one location to another as they follow a trail of bodies designed to confuse and distract them.
But their every move is being watched by an enemy who is ruthless and deadly, a powerful, sadistic enemy who enjoys toying with others’ lives before despatching them in the most horrifying manner imaginable. As the clues lead them first one way then the other, they fall deeper and deeper into the trap set for them.
By the time they uncover the truth, they will begin to doubt everything they know and face their greatest challenge to date.Read previous articleRead next article
