The second Cato Kwong mystery finds him back in Perth just as the weather and the crime start to heat up

Cato Kwong is back. Back in Boom Town and back on a real case—the unsolved mystery of a missing 15-year-old girl. But it's midsummer in the city of millionaires and it's not just the heat that stinks. A pig corpse, peppered with nails, is uncovered in a shallow grave, and a body with its throat cut turns up in the local nightclub. As a series of blunders by Cato's colleague brings the squad under intense scrutiny, Cato's own sympathy for a suspect threatens to derail his case and his career.
