When Amy Davenport is reported missing by her mother, Cardinal takes the job expecting to follow a truant teenager. As he tracks her down, he is catapulted down one girl's dangerous descent into the seedy underbelly of Sydney's drug scene and violent gangland. Crossing paths with drug addled fiends and trigger happy gangsters, as well as questionable police, Cardinal has to rely on his street smarts, fearlessness and a sense of humour to get to the bottom of this mystery in one piece. The Jerome Cardinal private investigator series A former federal police officer, Jerome Cardinal is toiling away in the sometime exciting but often dull world of private investigations. With a laid back optimism, he's too young to be crusty and jaded, and lives for the opportunity to solve that next challenging case. Living on his wits since he left the force, he squats at the luxurious house of a best friend while he runs his fledging PI business in a pokey Surry Hills studio. The latest addition to the Australian crime and mystery thriller series, fans of Cliff Hardy and Jack Irish will appreciate Jerome Cardinal as the newest upstart in the Australian private detective fiction world.
