A brutal home invasion shocks the nation. A man is murdered, his wife bound, gagged and left to watch. But when Detective Sam Shephard scratches the surface, the victim, a successful businessman, is not all he seems to be.

And when the evidence points to two of Dunedin's most hated criminals, the case seems cut and dried... until the body count starts to rise.

Meanwhile, is Sam in big trouble again?

‘The official investigation of a businessman’s murder fails to make any sense to New Zealand sleuth Sam Shephard in this, the detective’s fourth outing. The victim is not who they appeared to be. And as
personal problems start to play havoc with Sam’s state of mind, she decides to take matters into her own hands on the mean streets of Dunedin. This is written with a wonderful passion and flair. Symon’s polished style represents a real breath of fresh air for crime fans’
