UK's Barclays stockbroker Andrew Barrington-Smyth’s business deal with Malaysian born casino tycoon Robert Foong is in jeopardy when local Chinese chef David Tan is found dead, murdered with his own meat cleaver in the sleepy seaside village of Cabarita Beach, Australia.
Detective Jack Creed has his detective investigation skills tested to the max trying to unravel a mystical east west collaboration involving money laundering, shady property deals and the reputation of the British Barclays Stockbroking financial institution.
Is blackmail involved? Are Macau’s triads, the organised crime gang, collecting on a debt?
Then two more murders occur.
Jack Creed is a traditional detective with a twist. He’s part of a police procedural team, but that’s where the similarities end. Readers of Australian mystery books author C T Mitchell say Creed is a “Rebus in a Valentino suit”. But don’t let his Italian loafers, linen jackets or his ‘67 Mustang fool you. Creed is hard, anti-establishment, a fiercely loyal family man and the copper you need in a crime investigation with no unsolved mysteries to his name.
Jack Creed needs to solve this fast before more people are killed. But he’s hit a ‘Chinese wall’ – nobody is talking!
From the author of mystery novels, Murder on the Beach, Australian crime author C T Mitchell, crafts another masterful web of twists and turns in a police procedural fiction that tests Jack Creed's metal in this automatic page turning financial thriller, DEAD STAKES. Strap yourself in for another wild ride Down Under.
