The bestselling author of "The Thorn Birds" once again pits Captain Carmine Delmonico against a dangerous villain and a difficult case. Without the help of modern forensic tools, Captain Carmine Delmonico and his trusted detectives must restore peace to their small university town. It's 1968, and amidst the new era of paranoia, Delmonico faces new challenges. Sex and greed dominate two new murder cases, and tension strains Carmine's ties to colleagues, Desdemona, and his elder son.
