When a law enforcement officer dies under highly suspicious circumstances, it sounds like a perfect case for Australian Detective Carol Ashton. Too bad she's the suspect. Attending a rigorous FBI training course in the United States, Aussie top cop Carol Ashton feels a little out of her element - but is she out of her league as well? After a bitter argument with an instructor, Carol is shocked to find herself accused of murder.
Detective Inspector Carol Ashton is faced with three unsolved murders that seem linked by the fact that the victims' names appear under the heading Notable Deletions on the website of a radical international environmentalist group. Overseas, the entrepreneurs and magnates that the group, Gaia's Revenge, describes as environmental vandals have been dying mysterious deaths. Now it seems as if it's Australia's turn to play host to a hired killer.
