When beautiful Lisa Boehlinger Ramsey is found brutally stabbed to death in LA's Griffin Park, Detective Petra Connor and her partner Stu Bishop investigate. Lisa had publicly revealed that her ex-husband, millionaire TV star Cart Ramsey had beaten her, making him the prime suspect. Still, Petra and Stu must tread carefully; the top brass don't want a repeat of the OJ Simpson scenario on their hands. But there's a witness. Twelve-year-old Billy Straight, too frightened to come forward. And when Lisa's parents put a reward out on Billy, only Petra realises the true extent of the danger he is in. She must act quickly if this little boy is not to be wiped out . . .I get up and shake the sand out of my hair, fold the plastic and tuck it behind one of the poles, using a rock to weigh it down. Time to get some new stuff. Food, money. A hat; I remember that sunburn. ... I read in a nature book that gazelles and wildebeest chased by lions stop feeling pain so their death becomes easier.
