Fiery and ambitious, brilliant architect Francey Spinetti is a young woman on her way to the top. When wealthy magnate CI Ambrose introduces her to his vast North Queensland business empire - and a career-scarred local cop, Steve Parrish - everything seems to be falling into place, including her love life. But the harsh outback's landscape holds more secrets than Francey could possibly have imagined, and more enemies too. CI's family seem determined to eliminate Francey from the picture - whatever the cost. As CI's cattle empire becomes embroiled in murder, and Steve puts his life on the line to clear the name of the woman he loves, Francey will need to call on all her strength and determination to survive ...
