Blackwell North Amer
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 kidnapping of a child model whose freckled face has launched a thousand products. Malone, like everyone else, finds it hard to take the abduction seriously - until a body is found.
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.
