There is no pain as the blade slices her skin. She is only conscious of a warm, sticky sensation dribbling slowly down her neck.
Her own blood . . .
For eight years Lexie Rogers has been a uniform cop in Sydney’s red light district, Kings Cross. Having survived a violent knife attack, she’s witnessed far more than most cops her age. Now she’s back at work as the newest member of the Bondi Junction detectives’ office and ready to start again.
One of her first jobs is to execute a search warrant at a bikie clubhouse, belonging to one of the two local gangs in the eastern suburbs. What she uncovers begins a chilling investigation into a vicious world where loyalty is deadly and unwavering and can’t be bought . . . Or can it?
Lexie forms an unlikely alliance with one of the bikies, who’s realised his family’s in danger. But what neither of them knows is that Lexie is the one who’s in too deep. She knows too much. And as the stakes get personal, it seems the secret bond she has with a big bad bikie could be the one thing that’ll save her life. .

‘Crisp, fast-paced crime.’ – The West Australian
Worthwhile for a first
Believable is the first thing that comes to my mind when reading this novel. Not far fetched or out of the ordianry but true to form & the characters just like you & me doing their job. A little passion added to the mix makes for a lighter outlook on human traits, however this theme was left open for hopefully the next novel in this series. Well done.
Good first novel
It may be a little predictable but there's enough twists in this novel to keep you interested. A good crime drama for a first novel and definitely worth a read.
Very realistic if you know the streets of Sydney and the eastern suburbs
