Perverse Consequences

By Robert Blain

Australian private investigator Andrew Schlakier is hired by a mysterious government agency that wants a conviction on a ten-year-old murder case – and is willing to pay handsomely if he delivers. He begins tracking the whereabouts of Christopher Hohl – the eldest son of one of Australia’s richest families. But far from unearthing a man of murderous intent, Hohl’s past reveals a family tragedy in which he was an innocent victim. But as Schlakier traverses the streets of Melbourne, the state and the entire continent in search of clues, each lead propels him further into jeopardy – and a step closer to the man who could put his very own life in peril.
