“A point -22 calibre pistol. Good for a head shot. Nice and neat. Professional …”
An acquitted cop-killer is executed in a St Kilda backstreet. Suspicion soon falls on Rubens McCauley, a maverick detective with a lot of motive and plenty of enemies. With a team of internal investigators hot on his heels, McCauley needs answers … fast.
His hunt for the killer draws him deep into an underworld of new age bikie gangsters, old school hitmen and drug syndicates … and a past he’ll do anything to forget.
“Crime novels don’t get more topical that this … Henry knows the genre and knows how to write”
– Australian Book Review
“A real testament to experience and life in the field …”
– Sydney Morning Herald
