'There's a reason Pomare is called king of the twist' Herald Sun

The unputdownable new bestseller by multi-award-winning author J. P. Pomare


The violent slaughter of the Primrose family while they slept shocked the nation.

Their young live-in chef, Bill Kareama, was swiftly charged with murder and brought to justice. But the brutal crime scarred the idyllic town of Cambridge forever.

Seventeen years later, true-crime podcaster Sloane Abbott tracks down prison psychologist TK Phillips. Once a fierce campaigner for an appeal, TK now lives a quiet life with Bill's case firmly in his past. As Sloane lures a reluctant TK back into the fight, evidence emerges that casts new light on the Primroses - and who might have wanted them dead.

While the list of suspects grows, Bill's innocence is still far from assured. What will it cost Sloane and TK to uncover the truth?
