#amreading Class Act, Ged Gillmore

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Started this one over the weekend and didn't get nearly enough reading time to finish it, which has turned out to be a bit annoying as it's very good.

From the Blurb:

Can a man who’s lived a life of crime ever escape his past? The world’s most reluctant private investigator is about to find out.

Former bad boy turned local hero, Bill Murdoch, should be happy with his little piece of paradise. After all, he’s got the fancy car and the big house by the beach. The only trouble is he’s slowly suffocating in small town life.

From the Blurb:

When former police detective Ted Conkaffey was wrongly accused of abducting thirteen-year-old Claire Bingley, he hoped the Queensland rainforest town of Crimson Lake would be a good place to disappear. But nowhere is safe from Claire’s devastated father.
