She also knows the mark that war can leave on the living- her brother, Andrew, continues to face daily battles with shell-shock.But instead of getting rest and quiet, Andrew’s out with glamorous clairvoyant, Nadine Carrides, on the streets of Melbourne - streets that are turning ugly as the police call a strike and the city fills with lawless crowds. Could this looting and chaos be a smokescreen behind which the killer is unleashing a more personal anger? As potential witnesses are attacked, Eleanor is drawn into the investigation, in an uneasy alliance with Inspector Pearce, a man who doesn’t believe in coincidences.Then, an arrest is made for Bain’s murder,and it would seem that the mystery has been solved.But Eleanor is aware that many carry secrets - secret losses, secret desires - and that some people are fiercely protective of such secrets.With events building to a dangerous conclusion at the Melbourne Cup ball, Eleanor will have to face events from her own past in order to bring a killer to justice.‘Impeccable history with a mystery which grows more complex on every page. A must-read series!’Pamela Freeman‘Morwood again mixes history with mystery - to deadly effect!’Carmel Shute, Sisters in Crime Australia
