After witnessing a brutal bashing, can Simone help policeman Mitchell Ross find the culprits and still protect her sister?
After a six-year estrangement from her troubled family, Simone Parker returns home to the small Australian town of Brownbeck to attend a funeral. Now that their violent and abusive father is dead, she hopes to reconcile with her younger sister, Claire.
When Simone is the only witness to a brutal and near-fatal bashing, she discovers that Brownbeck harbours a criminal gang trafficking in illegal firearms. At the funeral, she recognises Claire’s new partner as one of the assailants.
How can she help police officer Mitchell Ross in his investigation if her own sister might be involved?
