What you need to know before your trail

Newly-minted homicide detective Nell Buchanan returns to her hometown, annoyed at being assigned a decades-old murder – a ‘file and forget’.

But this is no ordinary cold case, her arrival provoking an unwelcome and threatening response from the small-town community. As more bodies are discovered, and she begins to question how well she truly knows those closest to her, Nell realises that finding the truth could prove more difficult – and dangerous – than she’d ever expected.

The nearer Nell comes to uncovering the secrets of the past, the more treacherous her path becomes. Can she survive to root out the truth, and what price will she have to pay for it?

In this novel there is a new rural homicide unit based in Dubbo in New South Wales. The nearby ancient forest is flooded by the Murray river so the area is hard to navigate.

Nell’s hometown of Tulong is where the long dead murdered body of a man is found. He has been shot in the head.  Tulong is fictional.
