Matthew Lui sees his parents gunned down on a lonely Sydney backstreet. The killer, a young woman, stares him in the face before fleeing the scene. When the police arrive, all they find is the discarded gun. Who is the young woman? How can she have disappeared into thin air?
Paul Harrigan is a top cop who has survived the corruption and political manoeuvrings of the NSW Police. So far ...
Two years have passed since top cop Paul Harrigan walked away from the New South Wales Police Force to be his own man. Since then his life has been a gift, and his home with his partner Agent Grace Riordan and their daughter a sanctuary.
When a trafficked sex worker is found brutally murdered in Sydney bushland, it should be just work for Grace. But the murder is too savage. And someone is watching them - perhaps Harrigan's old enemies, who want their pound of flesh.
