A serial killer, dubbed 'The Freeway Killer', is headline news and when Marni's classmate is abducted from the mall where Sarah and Marni shop, their city no longer feels safe. Detective Ross Hunter's investigation into the abduction leads him to dead ends - until an unrelated incident sends him to the door of Freddy Adam-Jones, an unscrupulous barrister, who is guarding a secret that could ruin his life. When an unexpected windfall changes the lives of Sarah and Marni, their sudden wealth opens doors long closed, and threatens to cast light on history better left buried. What might Sarah's past reveal? What is her connection to Freddy? And can Detective Ross Hunter discover the link in time to save a young girl's life?

I wondered whether reading about a serial killer of 12 year old girls might be too confronting for me. However this book is so much more than that. Family, resilience, heartache, love, mistruths and honesty - like the layers of an onion being pulled off.
Maybe parts of the story are a stretch but overall I thought it was a wonderful read, a real page turner.
I loved that the story was predominantly set in my home city of Melbourne, so familiar.

Grab a pot of coffee, a comfy chair, turn the mobile off and get ready for a tale that will sometimes leave you confused.And of course you'll be trying to figure out who the murderer is.There are some parts of the story that didn't have a conclusion, so who knows, maybe there could be a sequel.
