Successfully sweeping another scumbag drug dealer off Brisbane’s streets should be a time for Queensland cop, Sam Brogan, to celebrate. But that dealer’s father happens to be Luca D’Marco, a sadistic defence barrister who wastes no time in sending a message to anyone stupid enough to think of taking what’s his. If Sam Brogan is to survive D’Marco’s bloody vendetta, he’ll have to decide exactly which lines he’s prepared to cross in the name of justice.
A feuding Scottish family has to span the deep crevasses of its differences when one of their own falls terminally ill.
Greta knows she has dementia. It started as nothing more than a fleeting vacuum but now billows like a storm cloud. Back in the seventies she saw what this cruel disease can do to a woman, and pictures herself the same sad drooling wreck her mother became. But there are fences to mend, and she's running short of time.
Greta's son and daughter are at war. Their bullheadedness over nothing more than a misunderstanding is tearing the family apart, and even when she takes to wandering in the night Greta's children can't agree she needs help. When they eventually lock her up in a mental hospital she's left with nothing but memories and her authority as matriarch. It's still her duty to shepherd her flock, and until the day she dies she must try to bring them together. But this final test of Greta's worth as a mother promises to defeat her as she gradually loses her mind.
