What is it that so disturbs tough, cynical Detective Hal Jarrad about the death of Julie Stanton? Is it because the girl seems so young and innocent — a collector of teddybears, no less!
Jarrad’s gut feeling that something calculatingly evil is afoot, could well be on the money. But are the big, righteous copper’s nerves up to what follows him and his family through Sydney and into the lush reaches of the Pittwater?
“The Teddybear Kill” won Radio 4BC and Dymocks Booksellers Writers’ Award for 1995.
