Dead Girl Sing

Dead Girl Sing

Retired homicide cop Darian Richards knew he should have let the phone keep ringing. But more than two decades as a cop leaves you with a certain outlook on life. No matter how much he tried to walk away, something, or someone, kept bringing him back to his gun.

One phone call. Two dead girls in a shallow water grave. And a missing cop to deal with. Something bad is happening on the Gold Coast glitter strip. Amongst the thousands of school leavers and the usual suspects, someone is preying on beautiful young women. No one has noticed. No one knows why.

Darian looked into the eyes of those two dead girls. The last person to do that was their killer. He can’t walk away. He will find out why.

The second book in the Darian Richards series

Compulsive reading, Promise itself is more menacing, more disturbing and much more confronting than any other crime thriller on the shelves. It is brutal. It is terrifying. It is a brilliant book
ABC on Promise
The good part of any crime story is an intricate yet totally authentic plot, allowing the reader to suspend any disbelief for the entire journey. Mr Cavanaugh manages this with the deftness of a tightrope walker - all the while retaining his own unique approach to the characters and backdrop
