Book 1, The Darian Richards Series

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


An Australian crime thriller 'as good as Harlan Coben' - Weekend Australian.

A serial killer is stalking the Sunshine Coast. Girls have vanished. All blonde and pretty. Ex homicide investigator Darian Richards knows they are dead even though the cops keep saying 'missing'. That's what you have to say if you don't have a body.

Jenny Brown was the first. The local cops said runaway.
Then others disappeared. They couldn't all be runaways.

This killer knows how to stay under the radar, how to hide in plain sight. He knows how to hunt, hurt and kill. Darian has seen evil like him before and knows what it takes to make it stop. He'll make sure the killer gets what he deserves... and that's a promise.

A devastatingly brilliant crime novel that gives us a horrifying glimpse into the mind of a diabolical killer and introduces us to one of the most complex and uncompromising heroes since Harry Bosch.

Tony Cavanaugh is an Australian writer and producer of film and television with over thirty years' experience in the industry. His new novel, Dead Girl Sing also features former cop Darian Richards and is on sale now.

'Never relinquishes its hold on your nerves' - Canberra Times

'Couldn't stop reading it. One of the freshest and most well-written novels I've come across this year' - Graeme Blundell, crime reviewer, The Australian

'The best thing about this book is that it looks like there will be a second one' - Australian Bookseller & Publisher

'Compulsive reading, Promise itself is more menacing, more disturbing and much more confronting than any other crime thriller on the shelves. It is brutal. It is terrifying. It is a brilliant book' - Rob Monshull, Weekends Producer, ABC

Customer Reviews


Excellent read.


Fast moving and hard to put down. Somewhat quirky but I enjoyed it.

Has to go on!

Great story. Great characters. All set up for a series of thrilling stories. If the next is as good as the first then there'll be many more to come.
