From the award-winning Jon Cleary, a novel featuring Sydney detective Scobie Malone. The routine arrest of a fugitive leads to disturbing allegations against a Crown Prosecutor, and the abduction of a child model reveals an ugly side to the world of fashion.

When Scobie Malone returns to the bush town of Collamundra to apprehend a husband who disappeared after the murder of his wife four years earlier, it seems a cut-and-dried case. But as the trial begins, a key witness recognizes a face in the courtroom, and Scobie finds himself investigating the Crown Prosecutor – an individual revered by colleagues as the perfect family man and a pillar of the community.

Meanwhile, Sydney is agog at the abduction of a child model whose freckled face has launched a thousand products. Malone, like everyone else, finds it hard to take the threat seriously – until a body is found. As a devoted father, Scobie is shaken by the murder of a child, but his inquiries reveal that the family life little Lucybelle experienced was a million miles from the settled existence of the Malones.

Suddenly Malone is embroiled in two cases where, the deeper he probes, the more he wishes he hadn’t. And, having uncovered the truth, he must decide whether to proceed – knowing that if he does, a family will be destroyed.
