A nine-year-old boy witnesses the slaying of two of his family. His eyes lock on those of the killer...until three shots tear into his body. PI Gemma Lincoln and her best friend detective Sergeant Angie McDonald are on the case―tracking down a cold-blooded killer and piecing together evidence that hints that the murderer may have been a cop. All the while Gemma is dealing with a runaway girl, searching for a missing young woman, and trying to deal with the biggest question of her life―will she keep her baby?
Gabrielle Lord draws on all her skills to weave a story that is bloody and unpredictable, yet at the same time personal, warm and very thoughtful. She stands alone as a writer who can bring together a brutal, complex crime plot with a very modern relationship story and make both threads thrilling and compelling.

Business is slow for Sydney P.I. Gemma Lincoln when her former colleague on the police force brings her in to work on the brutal murder of a regional superintendent and his sister-in-law. Gemma, who has just discovered she's pregnant and is beset with morning sickness and doubts about whether to keep the baby, uncovers a web of affairs, betrayals, and false leads. In her investigation she encounters a weirdly artistic brother, the ex-cop ex-wife, teen hookers, a runaway reality show contestant, a mysterious cult, and a 14-year-old neighbor called "the Ratbag." Narrator Carolyn Lee, a native Australian, brings life to the local Sydney scene with a flawless interpretation of the likable private detective. A good one to savor over a bit of Vegemite on toast.
