The Murder Scene


After Beth’s body is discovered, the police converge on her farmhouse in Rhyll. The story quickly emerges. Fergus’s affair. The fight between Vivienne and Fergus the previous evening. The middle-of-the-night phone call to collect the Cameron children. And ultimately, the murder of the woman Fergus had been having a secret affair with.

To add to the macabre, when detectives uncover the body, they see the killer has carved a huge letter A into the dead woman’s chest and stomach. The first question for police is: where is Vivienne Cameron? Both she and the family’s Land Cruiser are missing.

The hunt for Vivienne intensifies. Only after the police have driven past it all day is the Land Cruiser discovered late afternoon by Vivienne’s sister-in-law. It had been abandoned near the Phillip Island bridge.
