You’d think being a Private Investigator in a small, coastal Australian town would be pretty easy. Stolen cars, infidelity, small stuff, basically. That’s what Mac Durridge thought it would be. And until he was framed for murder and a whopping huge bank heist, that’s what it was.
Now he’s running from the police force that he used to work for, trying to get his ass out of the fire before they catch up to him.
It’s going to be a hot summer.
Four months after Mac sorted out the biggest bank job in his small Australian coastal town’s history, things start to unravel.
An unexpected meeting on a hot summer’s day triggers a series of events that force Mac to choose between saving his own skin, or risking it for an innocent caught in the crossfire.
Now Mac is under the gun, literally, as two conflicting cases lead to an explosive conclusion that may end his career.
And his life.
He’s just trying to make ends meet.
Mac Durridge ekes out a living as a Private Investigator on NSW’s Central Coast, an idyllic region of coastal Australia. When the wife of a prominent politician is kidnapped and suspected to be hidden somewhere on the Central Coast, Mac is recruited to the team tasked to find her.
Until the shit hits the fan and he ends up in the middle of a war he didn’t expect.
And one he doesn’t think he can win.
McGinnis Investigations has been operating a small but successful shop in Campbelltown, an hour south of Sydney, Australia for over a decade. Business has been what you’d expect in a sort of rough town in a sort of rough country, with an ever increasing circle of rough and tumble clients spreading the word that Dan McGinnis’ team could get the job done, but only above board. Nothing shady, nothing illegal, frequently successful and frequently just skirting the line .
But nothing could prepare Dan McGinnis for the depths he would plumb when a wealthy Sydney surgeon visits his office and asks him to investigate her husband’s murder. Her husband, Jeremy Brookes, was legal counsel for the owner of a right-wing media empire. The police say he was killed during a mugging gone bad.
She thinks it was a hit.
Crossing powerful media types, the real killer and two other cases that seem to be connected drags Dan and his team into the darker side of Australian politics, money and corruption.
