A Toxic Inheritance
As a junior lawyer at the prestigious Sydney Legal, Meghan Chifley knows that if she works hard enough, one day she’ll reap the rewards. In the meantime, she prays her family doesn’t self-destruct. Always the peacemaker, lately it’s become a fulltime job refereeing the battles between her father and her brother. To make things worse, her half-sister also has plenty to say and not all of it is nice. Meghan despairs her family will survive the pain they seem determined to inflict upon each other. Then her father is brutally murdered. Her world is turned upside down when she’s forced to acknowledge his killer might very well be one of her siblings.
Detective Sergeant Zane Sullivan doesn’t know what it’s like to have a family. Put up for adoption within hours of his birth, he spent his childhood being passed from one uncaring foster home to another. He knows firsthand how badly family can treat each other and he’s not at all surprised when the evidence points toward a family member being responsible for Grant Chifley’s murder. The only question is, which one?
Steeling himself against the sad vulnerability and kindness he sees in Meghan Chifley’s beautiful eyes, he holds himself at a distance. Hiding behind that appealing façade could very well be a cold-blooded killer. A man has been brutally murdered and Zane’s determined to find the person responsible.
Is Meghan hiding a deadly secret, or is it someone else she’s protecting? The answer will leave everyone gasping…
