It was always expected that Lachie Sinclair and his brothers would one day take over the family property, Kamilaroi. But when tragedy strikes, Lachlan blames his father and angrily renounces any future for him at Kamilaroi.

Moving to the city, Lachie joins the police force and quickly rises through the ranks. But after being injured in a gunfight he decides to go out on his own as a private investigator.

When a wealthy society woman asks Lachie to lead the search for her missing daughter, he reluctantly agrees. Early indications are that the woman's captors are hiding her in the Pilliga region, meaning Lachie must return to his roots in order to try and save her life .

This rollicking new bush yarn from the bestselling author of Valley of the White Gold and Silver in the Sun will keep Tony Parsons' fans turning the pages well into the night.

Praise for Tony Parsons: 'A heart-warming saga of family tribulations, and an intensely powerful and moving story with a true-blue Australian flavour .' Country News
