From the Back Cover
Concluding the acclaimed 'Four Seasons' tour of Sydney's urban underside, the latest Scobie Malone investigation introduces death's winter chill to the Detective Inspector's own front door.
3.30a.m. The Sydney monorail performs its endless circuit like a pale metal caterpillar. All for the benefit of one dead passenger. Elsewhere in the city's bleak midwinter, Darling Harbour buzzes to the sound of one thousand American lawyers attending an international conference. And that means one thousand opinions as to who killed their president.
Two bodies later, the Homicide Unit has lost one of its own. But establishing the connection is like trying to stick labels on a barrelful of eels. The more Malone fillets the heart of the city's legal profession, the more he cuts into an intrigue of international proportions…
Acclaim for Jon Cleary:
'The Malone stories come alive through their setting… Cleary's writing is seamless and his plots imaginative and mature'
'Cleary has produced another well-crafted, absorbing novel brimming with interesting people and incisive social commentary'
