Overview


On the rambling country manse of Haven, Senior Detective Tessa Vance hopes to find a little piece of heaven. But instead she finds herself immersed in hell.

A famous pop star lies dead in a toolshed, presumably from a suicide. The three angelic sisters who occupy the secluded estate cannot recall the details from the night he died. But they appear to be hiding something. Did they commit cold-blooded murder? Or is the killer one of the bizarre characters who surround these ethereal beauties? With her partner Steve Hayden, Tessa is dragged into a homicide full of unusual, unseemly details—with terrifying consequences. The dark secrets of Haven must be exposed for Tessa to save this quiet mountain town . . . and herself.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The quaint Australian mountain village of Oakdale is rocked by news of the apparent suicide of celebrity denizen Adam Quinn. Local police, aided by Sydney detectives Tessa Vance and Steve Hayden, converge on the misnamed, half-burned Haven Estate, which the washed-up rock star shared with his eccentric girlfriend, Rachel Brydie, and her three young daughters. Vance and Hayden soon uncover more than they bargained for when Fiona Klein, the girls' middle-aged temporary custodian, ends up at the bottom of a cliff. Denying involvement in the second untimely death, the seemingly simple-minded sisters recount horrific tales of abuse, ritualism and isolation at the hands of Adam and Rachel, stories largely supported by their offbeat neighbors and the gossip-mongering townsfolk. Rowe's (Suspect) cleverly drawn characters add to the unshakable creepiness that propels the story of the investigation to its surprising conclusion. (Dec.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

In her native Australia, Jennifer Rowe is widely recognized as an acclaimed novelist and a former editor of The Australian Women's Weekly. Before creating the Tessa Vance series with Suspect, she wrote four crime novels featuring TV researcher Verity "Birdie" Birdwood as well as several nonseries novels of suspense. Ms. Rowe has been called the "Agatha Christie of Australia"--and with good reason; she shares Dame Agatha's passion for complex, puzzle-driven stories populated by vividly depicted heroes, suspects, and villains.

Under the name Emily Rodda, Jennifer Rowe has also written stories for children--five of which have won the (Australian) Children's Book of the Year Award.
