Dead Again 2017 single work novel crime

'It is almost two years since horrendous wildfires ravaged the tiny town of Bullock. Melbourne journalist Georgie Harvey is on assignment in the recovering town to write a feature story heralding the strength of the community on the anniversary of the fires.

'Meanwhile, in nearby Daylesford, cop John Franklin is investigating a spree of vandalism and burglaries, while juggling life as a single parent and his ambitions to trade his uniform for plain clothes.

'When Georgie’s story connects with the crimes in Daylesford, she uncovers the appalling truth about a family man missing since the fires. And she is thrown back into conflict with John Franklin, a man she’s been trying to forget since their first encounter, eight months earlier.'
