Summary

Winner of the Duncan Lawrie Dagger (formerly the CWA Gold Dagger) for Fiction, 2007 Broken by his last case, homicide detective Joe Cashin has fled the city and returned to his hometown in South Eastern Australia, while his wounds heal and the nightmares fade. His recovery is interrupted when a local man is brutally attacked and left for dead. In the small town, suspicion quickly falls on three young men from the local Aboriginal community - but Cashin's not so sure.
This is the relentless story of a town with a hidden past. Cashin, who is trying to forget his own recent traumas, must uncover the grim secrets that lie forgotten in the town's history.
