She called it a ‘murder of the worst kind’. Did she mean her own murder?
In April 2022, Queenie Forsyth died suddenly in a village in Melbourne’s picturesque Dandenong Ranges.
Renowned cold case warrior Dusty Kent drops everything and rushes to The Dandenongs, full of regret for ignoring the retired socialite’s call for help. Dusty’s fierce determination to solve murder cases is fuelled by a personal connection through her own family tragedy. Every fibre in her body will be directed toward exposing the truth.
A local resident suggests Queenie was murdered because she stumbled on the truth about the disappearance fifty years previously of Australia’s first celebrity chef. Dusty wonders if the killer is closer to home. Is it Queenie’s son? A neighbour? A friend?
Unexpected secrets, like monsters from the deep, loom to the surface of the small community in the hills as Dusty follows one lead after another.
Eventually Dusty is sure she knows who murdered Queenie. But how can she find the evidence needed to bring the killer to justice?
