Felicity Young was born in Hanover, Germany in 1960. She settled in Perth in 1976. Having a brother-in-law who is a retired police superintendent, it was almost inevitable she would turn to crime writing.
When DSS Stevie Hooper steps into the empty Pavel house and someeone else's jurisdiction, she upsets more than the ego of a struggling suburban cop.
She has breached the defences of a ruthless group that has at its rotten heart a disregard for human life.
With her own family in crisis, the last thing Stevie needs is Skye, a driven young nurse, insisting she investigate the case. But when Skye turns up dead, Stevie knows she can't rest till she's avenged her friend's death.
