Makedde Vanderwall has her PhD and she has started a new life in Australia with her detective boyfriend, Andy Flynn. To scrape together extra cash to start her first forensic psychology practice, Mak begins working part-time for an infamous Sydney PI.
With a knack for investigation and bending the law, she might just have stumbled across her true calling - and the career choice that could finally bust up her relationship once and for all. Then Mak is hired by a mysterious client to investigate the murder of A-list PA Meaghan Wallace. The police believe it's an open and shut case: a junkie street-kid is guilty. But the case turns out to be a lot more complicated as Mak uncovers a dangerous web of cover-ups, killers for hire, the powerful and debauched rich and Australia's sleazy underbelly.
If the boy didn't kill Meaghan, then who set him up? And how far will they go to keep their guilt a secret?
