The latest romantic thriller by award-winning writer, Bronwyn Parry, reveals deadly secrets hidden in an Australian country town.
For eighteen years, a black hole in Mark Strelitz's memory has concealed the truth: that he was the driver of a car in which a young woman died. Now he needs to set the record straight. His very public resignation from Parliament forces the reopening of the case that saw his mate Gil charged for the accident.
Not much would drag investigative reporter Jennifer Barrett back to her hometown of Dungirri... except new questions about her cousin s death. She knows too well the whiff of corruption and cover-up, and she's determined to find the truth behind Mark's startling revelations. They had been good friends when they were young. That was long ago and people can change.
Her first stop is Mark's homestead on the edge of town, but despite the sounds coming from inside, no-one answers the door. Walking around the back of the house, she sees that someone has broken in and a fire is spreading quickly. Who is trying to keep Mark silent and stop the investigation before it even begins?
