Detective Sergeant Harry Belltree, back on the job after a near-fatal confrontation with corrupt colleagues, has become a departmental embarrassment. The solution is a posting away from Sydney and a quiet life in Newcastle. Or maybe not so quiet.
A body's been found buried just offshore on Ash Island; there may be more. There's also Harry's unfinished business. The car crash that killed his parents and blinded his wife happened not far from Newcastle. And Harry knows it was no accident. The other unfinished business is Jenny's longed-for pregnancy. Which means that now the stakes are higher than ever.

Hate it when a talented authors allows otherwise strong characters to make ridiculously stupid decisions. And I hate cliffhangers. Makes the entire book seem like a soap opera. Enjoyed this sometimes very good if at times a little too "fabulous" right up until the last ten-twenty minutes, when it just went off the rails for me. Too bad.
