An Australian crime thriller 'as good as Harlan Coben' Weekend Australian.

A serial killer is stalking the Sunshine Coast. Girls have vanished. All blonde and pretty. Ex homicide investigator Darian Richards knows they are dead even though the cops keep saying 'missing'. That's what you have to say if you don't have a body.

Jenny Brown was the first. The local cops said runaway.
Then others disappeared. They couldn't all be runaways.

This killer knows how to stay under the radar, how to hide in plain sight. He knows how to hunt, hurt and kill. Darian has seen evil like him before and knows what it takes to make it stop. He'll make sure the killer gets what he deserves... and that's a promise.

A devastatingly brilliant crime novel that gives us a horrifying glimpse into the mind of a diabolical killer and introduces us to one of the most complex and uncompromising heroes since Harry Bosch.

Tony Cavanaugh is an Australian writer and producer of film and television with over thirty years' experience in the industry. His new novel, DEAD GIRL SING also features former cop Darian Richards and will be published 26 February 2013.
