Gangland killings, drugs, corruption ...
You've read the newspapers, now read the book! - a .22 calibre pistol. Good for a head shot. Nice and neat. Professional!
An acquitted cop-killer is executed in a St Kilda back-street. Another gangland killing, or a rogue cop out for revenge?
Suspicion falls on Rubens McCauley, a maverick detective with a lot of motive and plenty of enemies. With his marriage in tatters and a team of elite investigators hot on his heels, McCauley needs answers - and fast. His hunt for the killer draws him deep into an underworld of gangsters, hitmen and dance parties - and a past he'd do anything to forget.
