Currently Reading would have been a bit more accurate if I'd have posted this last night when I picked up the book - but I've finished it now. So more when I write up what turned out to be a book which kept me awake a bit longer than I should have been.
From the Blurb:
Death is stalking the southern South Island, and what roles does the visting Darling Brothers Circus have to play?
"Rosie, wait up", he called as he lengthened out his stride to catch up with her. As she turned he couldn't help but enjoy the immense smile that lit up her face when she realised who'd hailed her.
Death is stalking the southern South Island. And what role does the visiting Darling Brothers Circus have to play?
Sam Shephard is on the bottom rung of detective training in Dunedin, and her boss makes sure she knows it. She gets involved in her first homicide investigation there when a university student is murdered in the Botanic Gardens. Sam soon discovers this is not an isolated incident. There is the chilling prospect of a predator loose in Dunedin.
Is the murdered in the circus or closer to home?
Sam must find out who's running the show.
