A TIME DURING POST WWII, SYDNEY IS THE PLACE OF CULTURE AND CELEBRATION FOR MANY, BUT IT IS ALSO THE CITY OF DARKER SECRETS…
Investigative journalist Charlotte Tyrell seeks out the reasons for a woman’s disappearance from a Kings Cross boarding house. Then another beautiful young girl disappears from the boarding house and under very suspicious circumstances.
Is the Landlady and her strange twin daughters who operate the disturbing house for boarders responsible, or is something, or someone, more sinister at play?
The locked basement, where Charlotte discovers the missing girl’s belongings, is bare upon investigation by Detective Michael Devlin, who takes the search for the girls personally, as his sister, Madelaine, is also missing.
His friend, Madelaine’s fiancé, and war veteran, Joseph Moody, has rejected society to find solace in the abandoned tunnels beneath St James Rail Station. Joseph constantly struggles against fatigue and his nightmares where foreboding figures carry unconscious women through a shimmering light. He has no idea if his visions are real or not. With their lives at stake, Charlotte, Michael and Joseph will discover the answers they seek to everything they fear, and the only question left to answer will be – can they survive the truth?
“A starlight Sci-Fi classic thriller that keeps your heart in your throat through the whole experience…could not stop until the last page!” Andrew, Indiebooks Reviewer
