Book Synopsis

Balmain, once the industrial, blue-collar engine room of Sydney, is being transformed. The older locals are being squeezed out by the cashed-up developers and hungry young professionals keen for a town house near the city. Water views add value ... but are they worth killing for?

Enter Nicola Sharpe, a twenty-nine-year-old private investigator. She's lived in Balmain all her life and is worried about what's happening in her suburb. When a friend of her father's suspects major union fraud then disappears, and a local resident suffers repeated threats and vandalism, Nicola realises that something is very, very wrong. On Cockatoo Island, an evil secret is about to surface.

DryDock was nominated for a Ned Kelly Award.
