A missing boyfriend ... a heavily pregnant girlfriend ... just another ordinary case for QuicK Investigations. But the trail they follow suggests something far from ordinary. Who is Orie Kavlar and why has he gone to ground? What is the connection to the body of a dead girl found on waste ground in Sandyford? And what is his relationship to Darren Wallace, ex-gangland criminal?
With their personal relationship at a new all-time low, Sarah and John are straining under the weight of their own problems: like the murder of Sarah's ex-boyfriend Vic. Vic was a dangerous psychotic, but murder is murder. So why won't she accept John's help?
In no time John and Sarah's investigations alert others to their search and as they dig deeper into Orie Kavlar's life, one man decides he has too much to lose to allow them to continue. Sarah and John are about to be caught up in an undertow of violence that will suck them into their most perilous case yet.
