Two years have passed since top cop Paul Harrigan walked away from the New South Wales Police Force to be his own man. Since then his life has been a gift and his home with his partner Agent Grace Riordan and their daughter a sanctuary. When a trafficked sex-worker is found brutally murdered in Sydney bushland, it should be just work for Grace. But the murder is too savage. And someone is watching them - perhaps Harrigan's old enemies, who want their pound of flesh. When Grace's boss pushes her into a sting to catch the sex-worker's murderer, it becomes a question of who is being hunted. Who, in the end, is going to be left looking into the eyes of a killer with no place to hide? Suspenseful, smart and chilling; two of Australian crime's most memorable characters are in a race to save themselves from evil that even they have never faced before.
