Synopsis of book»

Detective Superintendent Jack Deacon doesn't take kindly to threats made on his family. So when local crime boss Joe Loomis starts to menace his infant son and the child's mother, Brodie Farrell, Deacon is prepared to do whatever it takes to protect them. However, the danger of Loomis is not something he will have to worry about for long.

Brodie has made a career out of finding lost things, but the last thing she'd want to look for is a man she's taken great pains to lose. Annoyance is quickly replaced by horror when she finds Loomis at her door collapsed in a pool of blood - stabbed to the verge of death with his own knife. But it's the gangster's enigmatic last mutterings that threaten to tear apart her tenuously held family.

With Deacon under suspicion and Brodie on the hunt for the crook's killer, both are pulled into a world of twisting family ties and terrorism. Little do they know that the murder of one small time crime boss will unearth a sinister plot that could devastatingly impact far more than the pair's domestic life.
