WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award -- Best Thriller
When authorities fail to identify human remains discovered in and around Broome, Martin and Claire are despatched to the idyllic seaside resort to investigate. Little do they know their every move is watched, as they follow first one lead then another, until they are face to face with a ruthless enemy who is determined to end their lives.
"The author has created an intriguing mix of suspense and the supernatural in a breathtaking tale that left this reader wanting more. The vivid descriptions of Broome and its surrounds made me want to pack a bag and fly there—and I would have but for other constraints. Dialogue was exceedingly well used and served to drive the action. An excellent read." ~ PWindsInspirations

About the Author
Born in 1943 into a working class family with middle class aspirations, I began writing stories while at school, finally venturing into novels when I retired from teaching in 1997. The result was a series of murder mysteries set in Australia and featuring two unorthodox investigators, who work for the fictional Strange & Obscure Cases (SOC) Unit, an autonomous offshoot of ASIO.
Encouraged by positive feedback, the stories flow easily and usually reflect my bizarre sense of reality and weird humour. When the muse’s ego is bruised, I bide my time, reworking old short stories into Sci-Fi novels and waiting for new ideas to evolve. The longest time I’ve gone without writing anything new has been eighteen months, but when the drought broke, the words flowed thick and fast.
Three times married, with four children, I live in Morwell, Victoria, Australia.
