Set in contemporary Australia, Joe, a NSW police detective with a suitcase full of emotional baggage, and his partner, Tess, a tart-tongued Italian beauty, investigate a baffling series of three killings with complex connections. In order to catch the killer before he strikes again, they must match their wits against an intelligent and highly organised serial killer, who uses a gay dating site to lure his victims - all young, attractive women - into his clutches. The only clues at each of the bloody murder scenes are a cryptic note and a white rose.

Review quote

RECOMMENDED by the US Review'Set in contemporary Australia, this foray into the oft-examined world of serial killings manages to set itself apart from the majority of such thrillers. Corben is a skillful storyteller who intricately weaves police procedure, individual angst, and ongoing suspense into a compelling drama. The author's dialogue is crisp and has the sound of real conversation. Her premeditated reveal of pertinent information doesn't impede the tale's pace. Rather, it motivates the reader to expand his or her list of potential suspects even as the principal characters are whittling theirs down. For a debut novel, Corben is off to a first-rate start.' - Joe Kilgore, The US Review.

'Gaylene B. Corben has created characters the reader can identify and empathize with, a tantalizing mystery with red herrings and false trails, and complex, three-dimensional antagonists. After building a logical case from the ground up, our heroes-and you, dear reader-are hit between the eyes with a surprise that will leave you breathless. Ms. Corben is a mystery writer to keep an eye on.' Charles Ray, author.
