Australian top cop Carol Ashton must outsmart a fiendishly clever killer.
A careless jogger plummets from a great height. A man is the victim of a fatal hit-and-run. A woman topples over a cliff while sightseeing. Tragic accidents occur everyday.
When Detective Inspector Carol Ashton is called in to investigate Captain John Trelawney’s fatal fall from Sydney’s scenic North Head, she discovers that his brutal demise may fit into a disturbing state-wide pattern of apparently accidental deaths.
Carol’s suspicions are heightened when a closer look at these accidents reveals that they effectively eliminate a problem person and provide a substantial insurance payout. But before Carol can catch the killer she must prove that these seemingly unrelated deaths are, in fact, murder and very much related…
Fourteenth in the Carol Ashton Series.
