A Mak Vanderwall Novel

By: Tara Moss

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

Former model turned forensic psychologist and PI Mak Vanderwall is missing, presumed dead in Paris. By hiring a hit man to kill her, the powerful and corrupt Cavanagh family aimed to silence her for good. But after narrowly escaping death, Mak has taken over her would-be killer's world.

She is very much alive.

And transformed ...

Back in Sydney Mak's former flame, criminal profiler Andy Flynn is on the trail of a vicious rapist and murderer with possible ties to the infamous 'Stiletto Killer'. He may have struck before and will certainly do so again. And while Andy struggles to cope in a world without Mak, little does he realise she is on her way back. And this time she's ready to make her own justice.

    The book took a little bit more to get into compared to the other books in the series, but I I loved the book. It was a fantastic read, just a bit disappointed with a bit of the ending, also I am very sad that this is the last book in this series.
    Highly recommend this series to anyone

      This was my first Tara Moss novel and I immediatelly went out and bought more of her books. Not only is she an amazing woman (just read the "About the Author" page) but a skillful and delightful writer.

          Took a while to remember where we were at after Siren.Tara did her best to bring us up to date but it took a while. This didn't detract from the read though.

              sooo good, absolutely loved this book!! i could not put this one down!! the pages just turn themselves! tara moss has given her main character a suitable ending for those who have been reading the mak vanderwall novels for the past 15years. the in depth research and descriptions make you feel like you are actually walking the streets of paris, sydney, etc where tara has placed her characters. my favorite author of all time, and although this is the last book in this mak vanderwall series, i am looking forward to reading more of her work.

              Tara Moss

              Tara Moss is the author of the bestselling crime novels Fetish, Split, Covet, Hit and Siren. Her novels have been published in seventeen countries* in eleven languages, and have earned critical acclaim around the world. Her non-fiction writing has appeared in The Australian Literary Review, Vogue, ELLE, The Australian Women's Weekly, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian, among other publications.

              Writing has been a lifelong passion for Moss, who began penning gruesome "Stephen King-inspired" stories for her classmates at 10. She went on to a successful international career as a fashion model before pursuing professional writing, first earning a Diploma from the Australian College of Journalism in 1997, and in 1998 winning the Scarlet Stiletto Young Writers Award for her story, Psycho Magnet. Moss wrote her debut novel, Fetish, when she was 23. Her crime novels have been nominated for both the Davitt Award and the Ned Kelly; two of Australia's most prestigious honors. Not a writer to rely solely on imagination, Moss' in-depth research for her writing has seen her earn her private investigator credentials (Cert III) from the Australian Security Academy, tour the FBI Academy at Quantico, spend time in squad cars, morgues, prisons, the Hare Psychopathy Lab, the Supreme Court and criminology conferences world-wide, take polygraph tests, shoot weapons, conduct surveillance, pass the Firearms Training Simulator (FATSII) with the LAPD, pull 4.2 G's doing loops over the Sydney Opera House flying with the RAAF, and acquire her CAMS race driver licence. Stopping at nothing to research and 'experience' scenes for her latest novel Siren, Moss was set on fire by Hollywood stunt company West EFX, and choked unconscious by Ultimate Fighter 'Big' John McCarthy.

              Moss hosted Natgeo Presents and the international crime documentary series "Tara Moss Investigates" on the National Geographic Channel, and has participated as a guest and panelist on numerous popular TV programs. She has also conducted hundreds of talks at literary festivals, schools, universities and corporate events.

              Born in Victoria, BC, Moss is a dual Australian/Canadian citizen, and now has a star on the Australian Walk of Fame, as the first person inducted for services to literature. She divides her time between Sydney, Los Angeles and her hometown in Canada. When not researching and writing her next novel, Moss enjoys riding her 900cc Triumph Scrambler motorcycle, spending time with her pet pythons, and serving as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, as well as an ambassador for the YWCA, and the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children. She is married to Australian poet and philosopher Dr. Berndt Sellheim.

              (*Moss's novels have so far been published in the USA, Canada, UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, France, Russia, Romania, Hungary, Czech Republic, Croatia, Japan, Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand.)
