From an Australian "literary institution" (Sydney Morning Herald), the latestmystery featuring homicide detective and family man Scobie Malone
The time has come for Scobie Malone to leave the homicideand serial offenders unit of the Sydney police, and his last investigationcould be the most bizarre case ever to cross his desk. Called in when ahousemaid is found dead in a dot-com millionaire's penthouse, Malone suspectshe's dealing with a kidnapping gone wrong. In fact, it couldn't have gone morewrong.
The kidnappers thought they had grabbed the man'sgirlfriend-how were they supposed to know that the millionaire liked slippinginto her designer dresses when she wasn't around? The plot thickens furtherwhen it is revealed that the dot-com bubble has burst, leaving the erstwhilemillionaire in debt to the Yakuza and Malone on the trail of some oldadversaries. Throw in the ex-wife, a mistress or two, and the mother of alloutlaws, and you have a case that might well confound the greatest inspector inAustralia.
