It’s not every day a bloke stumbles across a dismembered torso on Nobby’s beach.

Lachie Munro is starting to feel like he’s a magnet for trouble. Only the day before he fished a giant haul of heroin out of his favourite abalone poaching spot near Newcastle.

There’s a better than even chance that the heroin and the torso are connected and he should leave well enough alone. But the opportunity to get ahead of the game is too good to pass up.
