Second Darian Richards book, with a "companion" short story The Soft Touch, I'm back with my local author run and I have to admit thoroughly enjoying this.
From the Blurb:
Darian Richards knew he should have let the phone keep ringing. But more than two decades as a cop leaves you with a certain outlook on life. No matter how much he tried to walk away, something, or someone, kept bringing him back to his gun.
One phone call. Two dead girls in a shallow water grave. And a missing cop to deal with.
Something bad is happening on the Gold Coast glitter strip. Amongst the thousands of schoolies and the usual suspects, someone is preying on beautiful young women. No one has noticed. No one knows why.
Darian looked into the eyes of those two dead girls. The last person to do that was their killer. He can't walk away. He will find out why.
