A missing teenager, drugs, yachts, the sex trade and a cold trail that leads from Sydney to Norfolk Island, Byron Bay and Coolangatta. Can Cliff Hardy find out what's really going on?

Will one man's loss be Hardy's gain?

'I'd read about it in the papers, heard the radio reports and seen the TV coverage and then forgotten about it, the way you do with news stories.'

A missing girl, drugs, yachts, the sex trade and a cold trail that leads from Sydney to Norfolk Island, Byron Bay and Coolangatta.

The police suspect the father, Gerard Fonteyn OA, a wealthy businessman. But he's hired Cliff to find her, given him unlimited expenses and posted a $250,000 reward for information.

Finally there's a break - an unconfirmed sighting of Juliana Fonteyn, alive and well. But as usual, nothing is straightforward. Various other players are in the game - and Cliff doesn't know the rules, or even what the game might be. He's determined to find out, and as the bodies mount up the danger to himself and to Juliana increases.

Industry Reviews

"Slipping into the pages of Win, Lose or Draw feels like a kind of homecoming, touched with the sadness of knowing the beloved occupants are about to move on. But then there's the knowledge that there are 41 books to revisit, offering a fascinating account of where we have been. Vale Cliff Hardy and thanks for the ride." --Sydney Morning Herald
"This series debuted nearly 35 years ago, and, despite its being relatively little known in the U.S., you won't find too many mystery series that run this long with such consistently high quality." --Booklist on The Dunbar Case
