'Paul Harrigan is a top cop who has survived the corruption and political manoeuvrings of the NSW Police. So far ...

'Grace Riordan has left the Service and now works in the shadowy world of undercover intelligence - so she and Harrigan can't talk about work much.

'Harrigan is called to a grisly murder scene in Sydney's wealthy north: four dinner guests are seated around the dinner table - all dead. One of them a Senator's ex-wife; one of them a missing corrupt NSW detective. And the mummified condition of the detective's body - identified by a distinctive tattoo - suggests he has been dead for quite some time ...

'Politics, corruption, big business, espionage and illicit biotechnology ... Alex Palmer weaves them all into a heart-stopping race for the truth.' (Publisher's blurb)

y The Labyrinth of Drowning Alex Palmer , Pymble : HarperCollins , 2009 Z1601522 2009 single work novel crime 'Two years have passed since top cop Paul Harrigan walked away from the New South Wales Police Force to be his own man. Since then his life has been a gift, and his home with his partner Agent Grace Riordan and their daughter a sanctuary. When a trafficked sex-worker is found brutally murdered in Sydney bushland, it should be just work for Grace. But the murder is too savage. And someone is watching them - perhaps Harrigan's old enemies, who want their pound of flesh. Grace's boss pushes her into a sting to catch the sex-worker's murderer, and she loses sight of just who is being hunted. In the end, who will be left looking into the eyes of a killer, with no place to hide? Suspenseful, smart and chilling - two of Australian crime's most memorable characters are in a race to save themselves from evil that even they have never faced before.' (Publisher's blurb)
