Former police detective Ted Conkaffey was wrongly accused of abducting Claire Bingley, and hoped the Queensland rain forest town of Crimson Lake would be a good place to disappear. But Claire's devastated father. Dale Bingley has a brutal revenge plan all worked out. Meanwhile, in a dark roadside hovel called the Barking Frog Inn, the bodies of two young bartenders lie on the beer-sodden floor. It's Detective Inspector Pip Sweeney's first homicide investigation, complicated by the arrival of private detective Amanda Pharrell to "assist" on the case. Amanda's conviction for murder a decade ago has left her with some odd behavioral traits, top-to-toe tats-- and a keen eye for killers. -- adapted from back cover
