Book Description

She's street-smart, stunning and hoping to leave her troubled past behind...

Makedde Vanderwall is ready to start work as a forensic psychologist... and a new life in Australia with her detective boyfriend, Andy Flynn.

Hoping to scrape together some extra cash, 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 she is hired to investigate the murder of A-list PA Meaghan Wallace. The police believe it's an open and shut case but Mak discovers that it's a lot more complicated...

    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.)
