The bestselling author of The Thorn Birds once again pits Captain Carmine Delmonico against a dangerous villain and a difficult case. Without the help of modern forensic tools, Captain Carmine Delmonico and his trusted detectives must restore peace to their small university town. It’s 1968, and amid the new era of paranoia, Delmonico faces new challenges. Sex and greed dominate two new murder cases—and a series of rapes seems to escalate to murder. For Carmine, it seems to be a case with no clues.

    " It was a good story, but I really had trouble with her style of writing. Had to re-read a lot and found she used the word "cry" noticeably often. "

    " Captain Carmine Delmonico is back with a new thriller. While his 6'2" wife, Desdamona, struggles with a new baby, together with their toddler son, Carmine is on the trail of a "nude" rapist, who looks like he is escalating to murder. At the same time, Carmine is dealing with a young, rich trainee detective, who is very smart, but also headstrong and spoiled. This all makes for a very interesting novel. "
