Blood moon

  • Item Type: Book - MYSTERY D
  • Published: 2010
  • Copies Currently On Shelf:

When hordes of eighteen-year-old schoolies descend on the Mornington Peninsula to celebrate the last of their exams, the overstretched police of Waterloo expect reports of party drugs and underage drinkers. Maybe even drink-spiking and sexual assault. They don't count on a brutal bashing that attracts political attention. The victim is connected, and now Detective Inspector Hal Challis is facing interference from on high. Newly embarked on a relationship with his sergeant, Ellen Destry, Challis doesn't really need the brass looking over his shoulder. Then a bludgeoned corpse is found outside town, and it's clear something much darker than adolescent craziness is going down.
