The Search for Vivienne Cameron


When the Camerons’ Land Cruiser is found near the Phillip Island bridge, the possibility has to be considered that Vivienne jumped to her death.

The vehicle is closer to a bus stop than the bridge so the police also have to consider the possibility that Vivienne has fled the Island by some other means.

Police divers spend days searching under the bridge, confident that if Vivienne jumped, they would find some trace of her – glasses, a scarf, a boot. But they find nothing.

A search of the railing finds no break in the salt crust to suggest someone went over the edge. As the search by land, sea, and air intensifies for the missing Vivienne Cameron, others in her family give statements to police. A picture emerges of a woman driven to jealous rages.

The only problem is that the emerging picture is very different to the woman locals know and are fond of. Can the kind, sensitive, unflappable earth mother at the same time be a murderous woman, hell-bent on revenging her husband’s infidelity by slaughtering her rival?
