‘Suspenseful, exciting, atmospheric rural crime; a riveting debut.’ - Michaela Lobb, Sisters in Crime Australia
What will they risk for answers?
Picturesque Daylesford has a darker side. Melbourne writer Georgie Harvey heads to the mineral springs region in central Victoria to look for a missing farmer, and soon links the woman’s disappearance with the unsolved mystery surrounding her husband.
Meanwhile, maverick police officer and solo dad John Franklin is working a case that’s a step up from Daylesford’s usual soft crime: a stalker targeting single mothers.
Georgie’s investigation stirs up long-buried secrets, and attracts enemies. When she reports the missing person to local cops, sparks fly between her and Franklin.
Has he dismissed the writer too quickly? And what will the truth cost?
