When you’re a Cop you have to expect the unexpected especially when you work in the world of Bikies, underworld dealings and revenge killings, but on her first day back on the job Lexie Rodgers becomes involved in what is to become a deadly conflict between two rival bikie gangs, which was just a bit more than she expected.

Lexie is returning to the job after having been the victim of a violent knife attack and the death of her much loved brother, also a cop, who died while carrying out his job. His partner Harry Burgh is also at the Bondi Junction station and takes every opportunity to make contact with Lexie whenever he sees her, creeping her out and making her wonder why.

Not only is she a cop returning to a new station, having to prove her place in the team, but on her first day out with her new partner a drug bust at a local bikie headquarters pushes her to limits as she is forced to confront her recent past trauma.

Her involvement is to take her into a world she should rather have left behind; challenge her more than she would ever have though possible and once again places her into deadly, vicious world she thought she had left behind.

Threads weave in and out with ferocity in this complex case, bringing to the forefront the true perspective that some people will stop at nothing to get what they want

As the violence increases, and the stakes are raised Lexie and her partner Josh Harrison, find they are drawn ever deeper into the puzzle of just who is behind the killings and the violence. The evidence simply doesn’t add up!

The plot is complex and complicated, the narrative that which will give you a good in-depth look at policing in the modern world of Bikies and gang warfare: the detail is very precise and the wording that of the everyday world of crime and social issue.

For a first novel Davis has drawn on her intimate knowledge of policing to create a crime thriller that will have you turning the pages long after the lights should be out.
