Who is planning to murder Jillian West?
Somebody, somewhere, somehow believes her life is in danger and that she therefore needs protection.
Private Investigator, Phillip Stirling, finds himself way out of his depth when he becomes involved with trying to prevent her demise. This leading Sydney fashion model is about to undertake the most important assignment of her career; a major international fashion launch for Wool Australia.
An anonymous voice on his answering machine, plus an initial down-payment in an envelope under his office door, is the start of an intriguing mystery that will take this private eye from the city’s leafy northern suburbs during a scorching, humid summer to the dry heat and dust of a devastating drought in rural New South Wales.
The more Phillip Stirling becomes involved, the more he is convinced that there is another agenda – one which would explain the real motive behind the desire to murder his client.
Subsequent investigations uncover four possible suspects, four probable motives and four watertight alibies.
With Jillian’s life hanging in the balance, can Phillip Stirling find the proof he needs to identify the perpetrator? With signs emerging that it could actually be himself and not Jillian West who is the intended victim, this private detective knows that time is fast running out.
