Blurb from the book

It was as easy as that. Inspired, really. That first one, last week, she hadn't been a challenge at all. Drunk, half-drugged, hitchhiking, she'd been too easy. At least he'd got to use his head a little tonight. His headlights probed the darkness as he carried her away, high above the rottenness thatwas always there under the light of the sun.

Summer on the Peninsula. The heat's ramping up, the usual holiday madness building. D.I. Hal Challis is already recycling his shower water and starting to dread Christmas.

Wyatt, professional hold-up man, is back in another tight, remorseless thriller.

On the run after the payroll heist that went horribly wrong in Paydirt, wanted by the police and contract hitmen, he discovers that a shadowy third player has joined the hunt. Enter Stolle. Stolle specialises in finding people who don't want to be found. But who is his Brisbane client? Is this a trap Wyatt's walking into? And what of the score itself, the suburban bank with two million in the vault?
