Stone Town is captivating new rural crime drama from the author of the bestselling CUTTERS END - SHORTLISTED FOR THE NED KELLY AWARD FOR FIRST FICTION 2022


With its gold-rush history long in the past, Stone Town has seen better days. And it's now in the headlines for all the wrong reasons . . .

When three teenagers stumble upon a body in dense bushland one rainy Friday night, Senior Sergeant Mark Ariti's hopes for a quiet posting in his old home town are shattered. The victim is Aidan Sleeth, a property developer, whose controversial plan to buy up local land means few are surprised he ended up dead.

However, his gruesome murder is overshadowed by a mystery consuming the entire nation- the disappearance of Detective Sergeant Natalie Whitsed.

Natalie had been investigating the celebrity wife of crime boss Tony 'The Hook' Scopelliti when she vanished. What did she uncover? Has it cost her her life? And why are the two Homicide detectives, sent from the city to run the Sleeth case, so obsessed with Natalie's fate?

Following a late-night call from his former boss, Mark is sure of one thing- he's now in the middle of a deadly game . . .
