Book Synopsis

Blurb from the Book

Dr Tom Hackett had the perfect life - young, successful and now with a dream job working for a year in New Orleans.  All that changes when his wife is murdered there, her body mutilated, the victim of a seemingly random attack.

Desperate to leave those memories behind, he returns home to Australia and accepts a job in Sanctuary, an idyllic resort far from the dark shadows of old New Orleans.  But there is no sanctuary from his past, and when a spate of gruesome murders hit the sleepy town, Tom suddenly finds himself the prime suspect - because all of the victims are women he knows, and all are killed with an unmistakable similarity to his wife.

Plunged into a deadly game of cat and mouse with a ruthless assassin, only Jack Maguire, a disgraced homicide Detective with his own demons to battle, seems willing to help.  But with Tom's life on the line, can he afford to trust anyone?

With the police and the killer closing in, Tom must uncover Sanctuary's chlling secret, or he will remain the perfect suspect.
