Description

A murder made to look like an accident. A disgraced cop trying to forget his past.


Nash Baker was once a celebrated cop, but his career was ended when he chose to take justice into his own hands. Now he’s living a quiet life in a small town caring for the local wildlife and trying to stay away from trouble.


Jesse Redpath has a new job in a new town, Satellite – the stormy weather that greets her first few days on the new beat seems like a sign for what’s to come. A local has died in what seems like an accident, but Jessie isn’t so sure that ‘accident’ wasn’t planned. All evidence seems to point to Nash, but Jessie’s not sure about that either.


Seems like Nash has enemies. And what looks like a close knit community might just be cover for dark secrets.


No amount of rain will wash this town clean.


The new Jesse Redpath crime thriller from the bestselling author of Canticle Creek.

‘You can almost feel the blanketing heat and crunch of dry foliage underfoot while reading Canticle Creek ... a well-paced, atmospheric thriller with unexpected twists’ ― The West Australian
