At Police headquarters, In steamy, tropical Darwin, a cop is brutally slain—right under the noses of his colleagues! The equally savage murder of select members of Darwin's legal fraternity follows, leaving investigating officers completely baffled.
Is there a serial killer at large?
Is there a connection between each of the victims other than their respective professions?
These are the questions Russell Foley, lead homicide investigator on the case, struggles with whilst facing his own personal demons brought about by a failed marriage and the disintegration of his relationship with his best friend.
Sam Rose, private investigator, former police detective and one time best friend of Russell Foley, is hired by a Supreme Court judge to covertly investigate the killings. Initially aided by crusty old journalist, Paddy O'Reily. O’Reily’s subsequent murder, the kidnapping of his new found love, and his ongoing conflict with his former partner, has Rose in a race against time to not only save his own life, but the life of the woman he loves.
