Retiring to this town could be fatal.
Delia Frost loves her job at the bank. She loves her customers, most of whom are elderly. She doesn't love the idea of quitting her job to travel around Australia in a motor home with her husband who is recovering from a heart attack. And she can't bring herself to tell him that she doesn't want to go.
Days before quitting her job, she is invited to a book club meeting, run by a local celebrity. This seems like a beacon of hope, one last chance to do something for herself before she leaves it all behind.
But this isn't a random invitation.
Delia has been carefully selected by a serial killer to play her part in the murders of elderly widows.
Finding herself caught in a web of blackmail and murder, and not wanting to believe the killer is someone she knows, Delia is now keen to leave this town as fast as she can. Except the killer doesn't want to let her go.
