News of the murder spreads. People are in shock. No one can believe the culprit could be a popular Island mum. The news just does not equate to the Vivienne Cameron that people know.
She is the one who brings the casserole and bottle of wine when friends are feeling down. She is one who takes horse riding lessons so she can fit in better on the farm. She is the one who works tirelessly at the Community House to support other Island women. The quiet one. The awkward one. How can this have happened?
But outside of the immediate family, there is one local woman who is especially horrified when she hears the news. Hours after police suspect Vivienne jumped from the Phillip Island bridge to her death, Glenda Frost gets a phone call from the missing woman.
The conversation is about a gift Vivienne is organising as a retirement present for a friend. Nothing out of the ordinary. Except at that exact time, police are searching for her as a prime suspect in a murder case.
