The new Scobie Malone mystery, where the detective finds himself at the investigation of three murders by three different weapons. But the murders are linked. The answers are part of an international intrigue, the motivation behind the deaths as cold as the Sydney winter.

Concluding the acclaimed 'Four Seasons' tour of Sydney's urban underside, the latest Scobie Malone investigation introduces death's winter chill to the Detective Inspector's own front door.
3.30a.m. The Sydney monorail performs its endless circuit like a pale metal caterpillar. All for the benefit of one dead passenger. Elsewhere in the city's bleak midwinter, Darling Harbour buzzes to the sound of one thousand American lawyers attending an international conference. And that means one thousand opinions as to who killed their president.
Two bodies later, the Homicide Unit has lost one of its own. But establishing the connection is like trying to stick labels on a barrelful of eels. The more Malone fillets the heart of the city's legal profession, the more he cuts into an intrigue of international proportions…
