What happens when a drug dealer is forced to turn detective?
Murdoch’s doing just ﬁne, thanks for not asking. He’s dealing drugs for a professional crime syndicate in Sydney and saving for a house by the sea. But what does he think life is – a fairy tale?
As the syndicate puts pressure on him, Murdoch is cornered by an equally formidable foe – the Australian Tax Ofﬁce who are demanding an explanation for his sizeable cash income.
Murdoch spins a beautiful lie: he tells tax inspector, Hannah Simms, that he’s a private detective. When she asks him to investigate the mystery of her niece’s disappearance, Murdoch grabs what he thinks is a golden opportunity to outrun the syndicate. But his arrival in the missing girl’s small coastal home town causes an unexpected stir and the reluctant PI soon realises his troubles are only just beginning.
