PI Dev Haskell wakes up one morning in dire need of an aspirin, a cup of coffee, and an hour in the sauna. It seems he’s just spent a wild night with his beautiful bombshell of a client, Kerri, and she’s left him a note. A smart and sly man who fancies himself just a little more savvy and debonair than reality confirms, Dev thinks he’s got it made. But he has absolutely no idea what he’s getting into when he agrees to track down Kerri’s sister Nikki.
The Silence of the Snakes
There’s something strange going on at Snidely Safari Park. A mystery illness is spreading through the staff. When a zookeeper collapses inside the lion enclosure, Madigan Amos is the only one close enough to make a decision that could save the keeper, or condemn them both. Then, one stormy night, a stranger turns up at the zoo bearing a sickly green mamba… but Madi smells a rat.
When the son of business tycoon, Robert Tole, goes missing, and a murder scene is discovered by Brigg Bay, the worst is assumed. Days later, it is confirmed: Jason Tole is dead. What has law enforcement baffled, and Robert Tole reeling, is that Jason’s brother, Nathan, had been the victim of random gang violence four months earlier. Jason’s death has no clear links. Detective Marc Jackson is not new to murder, or gang violence. What does complicate this case is his past, with both the Toles, and the gangs of Easton. As his investigation unfolds, one thing becomes clear: neither Nathan nor Jason’s deaths were coincidental or isolated. Bad blood, and hints of a villainous mastermind begin to be revealed as dark secrets come to light.
