y separately published work icon Vodka Doesn't Freeze Leah Giarratano , Milsons Point : Bantam Australia , 2007 Z1405751 2007 single work novel crime detective When a middle-aged man is brutally murdered in the dunes overlooking a children's pool, it's immediately clear to Sergeant Jill Jackson that this was no ordinary victim: someone has stopped a dangerous paedophile in his tracks. Knowing first-hand the impact of such men on their prey, Jill is ambivalent about pursuing the killer, but when more men die - all known to police as child sex offenders - she is forced to face the fact that a serial killer is on the loose. As the investigation deepens, Jill unearths a long-established Sydney paedophile ring - a club of wealthy men who have thought until now that that they are untouchable. Despite the deaths of some of its members, the club is still operating and until Jill can shut it down, children are still in grave danger. As she faces predators and their victims, a psychotherapist losing her mind, and her own nightmares come to life, Jill is forced to decide whether or not she really wants to catch this killer. (Publisher's blurb).

'Sergeant Jill Jackson has been promoted and is transferred to a task force targeting gang related home invasions in south western Sydney. This means leaving her beloved eastern suburbs and her partner Scott which would have been impossible a year ago. Jill is much stronger since the death of the man who abducted her and is now ready to face the challenge of a new team and a new partner.

'The gang is believed to be responsible for at least five brutal home invasions over the last two months with the most recent culminating in a vicious knife attack that has left one of the victims crippled. On Jill's first day in the office the taskforce finds that that violence has escalated to murder and Jill and the team are now hunting a psychopath.' (Provided by publisher)
