Anne Carson: fifteen, beautiful, wayward. Abducted.

The rich Carsons have closed ranks and summoned Frank Calder, subject to strict instructions. This is not the first kidnapping in the Carson family and hard lessons have been learned.

But are the two events connected? And is greed the motivation? Revenge? Or could it be something else? To find out, Frank Calder must go beyond his brief.

And his every step into the darkness may end a girl's life.

Peter Temple is the author of nine novels, including four books in the Jack Irish series.

'Peter Temple is, quite simply, the finest crime writer we have and Shooting Star reminds us why and how he has set a standard internationally that few come near. His Chandler-like ability to capture the dark corners of our sunniest places is as good as it gets. Temple weaves past and present beautifully...a terrific and powerful read.' Hobart Mercury

'No summary or catalogue of details will do it justice. Read it for the writing and for where it says this sort of novel is today.' Age
