Editorial Reviews

This dark thriller from Australia's first lady of crime follows an ambitious Sydney lawyer, Cass Meredith, tapped to head a state investigation into a child pornography ring. The detective assigned to assist her has criminal tendencies himself, and the further in to the case Cass gets, the darker things become. Soon even her eight-year-old son, Mozz, is threatened. Listeners will enjoy Lord's vivid writing and the plot's dramatic twists and turns, while performer Richard Aspel has a knack for conveying the dramatic intensity of the scenes.

Publisher's Summary

When high-flying Sydney lawyer Cass Meredith is appointed head of a state inquiry into a child pornography racket, she sees it as an opportunity to clean up the city. But she doesn't count on ex-Vice Squad detective John Carrigan - with his reputation for taking bribes and liking underage girls - being made her second-in-command. Loveday Larsen, a local prostitute, is hinting she has a video, which could unmask some of the countries most powerful men as pederasts.

Suddenly its not clear whether its her eight-year-old son, Mozzie, or her career, that Cass is trying to protect when she plans to send him to boarding school. It seems that the closer Cass gets to discovering the identity of the men who torture children, the closer she gets to the truth about herself, as she, Carrigan and her young son are inexorably drawn towards the core of corruption.
