Overview
Compelling . . . A chilling read. Sydney Morning Herald

Twenty years ago, two children were kidnapped and left for dead.
Raised by a master criminal, they grew up to become cops. Very unusual cops . . .

Homicide detective Frank Bennett has an intriguing new partner. Dark, beautiful, coldly efficient, Eden Archer is one of the most enigmatic colleagues Frank has ever worked with that includes her brother Eric, who s also on the Sydney Metro police force. All of them are tested to the core when a local man discovers a graveyard of large steel toolboxes lying at the bottom of the harbor. Each box contains a grisly trove of human body parts.

For Frank, the madman s clues are a tantalizing puzzle. For Eden and Eric, the case holds chilling links to a scarred childhood and a murderous mentor named Hades. But the true evil goes beyond the bloody handiwork of a serial killer

Horrors abound in Australian author Fox’s first novel, a gritty police procedural set in Sydney. Hades Archer, the crime lord of the Utulla dump, disposes of the waste left over from human lives—and also creates artwork from “warped scraps of metal and pieces of discarded machinery.” Hades once rescued two children, Eden and Eric, from a botched kidnapping and raised them to become police homicide detectives: Eden is dangerously intuitive and creative, Eric lethally wild. Eden and her new partner, tough cop Frank Bennett, track a serial killer who kills for body parts he can sell to dying patients desperate for a transplant. In this twisted noir world, love goes as wrong as it can go, as shown in Hades’s relationship with the children he saved, and Bennett’s relationship with a victim who escaped her captor’s chop shop. Readers will look forward to the sequel set in this not-for-the-squeamish nightmare world down under. Agent: Gaby Naher, Naher Agency (Australia). (Feb.)
