Overview

A meth-addicted biker shoots a woman during a police siege. An elderly couple commit suicide on the terrace of their favorite cafe. An unidentified white male is stabbed to death in the street.

For Sydney homicide detective Harry Belltree, not long out of the military and a grueling tour of Afghanistan, these three deaths appear to be just another day at the office. Until, that is, he identifies the stabbing victim as his own brother-in-law Greg, and journalist Kelly Pool suggests there's a link between the three incidents. It seems Greg and the old couple had ties to the same man, a corrupt money man with a murky past and friends in both high places and low.

Harry Belltree can't get officially involved in Greg's murder, but he's not going to leave it in the hands of others. That's when he goes off-grid to investigate the links between these deaths. That's when things start to get dangerous."

This nail-biting first in a trilogy from Ned Kelley Awardfinalist Maitland (Ravens Eye and 11 other Brock and Kolla mysteries) introduces Harry Belltree, a Sydney, Australia, homicide detective, whos obsessed with the accident that killed his parents and left his wife, Jenny, blind from traumatic brain injury. When Greg March, Harrys brother-in-law, is murdered, he helps with the case, until his superior takes him off it. Harry begins his own investigation, which quickly becomes entangled in a villainous conspiracy involving illegal land deals, dangerous bikers, and corrupt politicians. Hes helped by Jenny, who has expert computer skills, and by Kelly Pool, a pushy journalist to whom he feeds information to draw out those involved. In the pursuit of justice, Harry commits some shady acts that not only put him and everyone around him in serious danger but also jeopardize his law-enforcement career. Complex, interesting characters will keep readers engaged until the improbable and unsatisfying ending. (Nov.)
