Australia's queen of crime fiction, Gabrielle Lord, is back with a chilling new novel. A 'vampire' is stalking the streets, attacking beautiful young women; some are murdered days later, others aren't touched again. Gemma Lincoln, PI, begins to see a pattern - but can she convince the authorities to take action before another life is lost?
How far would you go to look young and beautiful?
A young woman is attacked, she claims, by a vampire . Two more are found dead and hideously disfigured. A journalist goes missing after visiting Sapphire Springs Spa. And it s up to Gemma Lincoln, PI, to find out what is going on.
In her first week back on the job after maternity leave, finding a balance between investigating brutal crimes, caring for baby Rafi and making time for herself and Mike is all too much. Something has to give, but not while a third woman s life is in danger.
As she moves closer to tying the crimes together, Rafi disappears. Facing a mother s worst nightmare, Gemma discovers what she is prepared to do to save her son.
