The dead body of a Buddhist monk is found at the bottom of a cliff early one morning in a small town in Australia’s Far North Queensland. Four months later with the killer still at large, Dusty Kent, investigative journalist renowned for her ability to solve cold cases, is called in.
Dusty’s heart goes out to the humble monk who lived quietly in a forest community, nurturing the garden and volunteering to read books to elderly residents of a retirement village. Why would anyone want to kill such a gentle soul? Is the killer a fellow monk with psychopathic traits? Had small town prejudice against the forest community manifested into violent hatred?
Dusty’s determination to unmask the murderer is spurred on by her sympathy for the dead monk, her determination to bring him justice and her fury at the cold-hearted killer. One by one, secrets are uprooted and motives unearthed. What Dusty discovers in her quest to find the truth shocks and saddens her and has her Irish assistant questioning whether they should continue with the case.

He is charged with the murder of his inflammatory talk-show host, found dead in Gibson’s penthouse pool. Ruby posts the $2 million bond, the largest of her career.
