‘Gripping reading ... an ideal contemporary thriller.’ The West Australian
Smart, idealistic and motivated, Jen the law student intends to make a big splash as a criminal lawyer. A bit of upmarket prostitution pays her way through University and leads her to Harry, cannabis dealer and playboy who turns her world upside down. When Harry’s multi-million-dollar payout is ripped off by corrupt cop Roger “Raindrops” Reiner, Jen becomes his willing ally chasing the cash.
Together they must deal with the vicious Reiner; sleazy middleman Charlie Prentice; powerful Chen; erotic Jasmine; nightclub artist Eduardo; and Chatabul, the charismatic master crook. The money trail leads from Sydney’s streets to a secret estate on the North Queensland coast, and finally Hong Kong. Meanwhile, their relationship blossoms – and stumbles.
The stakes are high and the adrenalin turns Jen’s idealism to pure ambition as she learns her biggest lesson: everyone is a liar, a user – and morality is highly subjective.
