Gil was in two minds about returning to his hometown of Dungirri, but there was someone he wanted to visit. Driving towards town he had to make a detour due the road being flooded. As he was driving along the detoured road he was stopped by a car on the side of the road with blue and red flashing lights. Sergeant Kris Matthews’s patrol car was bogged and she needed, Gil to get a message back to her constable to help assist her. Gil offers Kris a lift and at first she is hesitant then decides to accept his offer. Kris is curious about who, Gil is and why he has returned to Dungirri, but it seems he is not giving too much away.

Later on that night, Kris is called out to the local pub where a fight has broken out and soon discovers who, Gil is and understands why he has been set upon by some of the locals. For his own protection, Kris takes Gil back to the police station and after talking to him she decides it might be best he stays at her place for the night. The next morning, Gil’s life is turned upside down after a body of a dead woman is found in the boot of his car. Kris knows, Gil has a solid alibi as he'd stayed at her place the night before. Both Kris and Gil are determined to find out who is responsible for the murder of the woman so they join forces, but could Kris be putting her own life in danger?

A fabulous suspense novel by Aussie author, Bronwyn Parry which I thoroughly enjoyed. Recommended.
