Overview

Shooting Star by Peter Temple

Anne Carson: fifteen, beautiful, wayward. Abducted.

The rich Carsons have closed ranks and summoned Frank Calder, subject to strict instructions. This is not the first kidnapping in the Carson family and hard lessons have been learned.

But are the two events connected? And is greed the motivation? Revenge? Or could it be something else? To find out, Frank Calder must go beyond his brief.

And his every step into the darkness may end a girl's life.

Peter Temple is Australia's most awarded crime writer. Text Publishing will release his full backlist—from the Jack Irish Thrillers to An Iron Rose and Shooting Star —in North America by early 2014.
