From the award-winning Jon Cleary, a new novel featuring Sydney detective Scobie Malone. Two people are murdered in one night...in the same hotel. The first victim is a cleaner, and the second turns out to be the wife of the American ambassador. Alarm bells are ringing in the Sydney's Homicide and Serial Offenders Unit and, as if he didn't have enough to contend with fending off interested parties from the FBI, CIA and federal authorities, Scobie Malone finds himself confronted with a long-forgotten girlfriend who is the widow of an abusive husband.
