Claire and Martin are trying to celebrate their good news on their vacation when their boss Gavin calls them into investigate a murder. But before they can even get their feet below them more murders happen. It seems that their former enemy, the one that is supposed to be death, may have a hand in these deaths. But that doesn’t make any sense. But it is true. Wanda Jean has escaped death and has a new plan to get pregnant with Martin’s child.

I have not read the other two book this this series.

This was an interesting book. I liked the last one more than I did this one. There is a lot going on within it's pages. There were some things I didn't like and read through them quickly while other things were intriguing and held my attention. I think others would like this book a lot more than I did. ...more

This is the first book I've read by Barry Metcalf and I was very impressed. Even though I hadn't read the first two books in the series I was able to follow what was going without confusion. This is not for the faint at heart as there are acts of rape, but the action and characters will keep you on the edge if your seat. I'd like to see what Claire and Martin get themselves into next. ...more

So I had kind of a hard time getting into this book but I pushed on and finished it and ended up liking it. There are some trigger points that could set some people off but the fit into the story that was being told. Life isn't always about the good, sometimes it gets bad to build character! That's exactly what happens throughout this story. I can't wait to read some more! Good Job, Metcalf. Good job ...more

Hops right into the action. Warning not for the faint of heart. There are acts of rape in this book. Do not read if you can't stomach reading it.
Martin and Claire are just getting back into the swing of their vacation, only to have it ruined by their boss Gavin. Now they must find the depraved killers in a small town. Unknown to them their nemesis Wanda Jean is very much alive and is at it again but with a new identity, but a different plan to get to her end game. Him. Will she succeed this tim

Born in 1943 to a working class family with middle class aspirations, I began writing stories while at school, finally venturing into novels when I retired from teaching in 1997. The result was a series of mystery/thriller novels set in Australia and featuring two unorthodox investigators who work for the fictional Strange & Obscure Cases (SOC) Unit, an autonomous offshoot of ASIO.
