Publication: Arcade Publishing, 2004, New York

First U.S. edition. Signed by the author. This book was first published in Australia in 2003 as a Trade-size paperback. As far as we know, there won't be a U.K. edition published. Fine in fine dust jacket. Charles Verge, a powerful architect, has disappeared leaving behind his young and very dead wife. After several months of getting nowhere, Chief Insp. Brock and Det. Sgt. Kathy Kolla are called into the investigation. Charles Verge is under suspicion along with an ex-con gardener and a corrupt doctor. Kathy does most of the legwork while Brock is back at headquarters in London directing an inquiry into the firm's shady finances.
