When private enquiry agent Oz Blackstone takes on the job of finding an insurance company’s missing half million, he’s hoping for a healthy finder’s fee, not a life-changing experience. But when he finds the corpse of the would-be embezzler with a knife in his back and no sign of the missing money, what had seemed like a routine job begins to look distinctly dodgy.

But old ghosts are not so easy to placate, and the shadow of Oz’s childhood sweetheart Jan, now tragically dead, is threatening to turn their relationship into a seething cauldron of recrimination. Until a body turns up face down in the swimming pool of their new villa, and suddenly they are very much back in the harness again.
