 A race against time…


Samantha Wolfe is no stranger to death. As a senior forensic pathologist at the Department of Forensic Medicine in Sydney, she’s lost count of the number of post mortems she’s performed in the quest to find answers. But something strange is happening in the Glebe Morgue. The number of bodies coming through with donated organs has surged upwards and there doesn’t appear to be any valid reason. Has the government’s initiatives to increase the number of organ donors finally paid off, or is something far more sinister at play? The more Sam delves into the mystery, the more she’s certain evil lurks nearby. 


Detective Sergeant Rohan Coleridge is put in charge of the investigation and he’s not exactly happy about it. The last time he spoke to Samantha Wolfe, she was a college student and accused him of walking out on his responsibilities. Taking on the investigation means significant hours spent up close and personal with her and he’s not sure if either of them will walk away unscathed… or even if he wants to.


The more Rohan investigates, the more he’s convinced something is amiss, but is the perpetrator one of the doctors of the prestigious Sydney Harbour Hospital, or is it someone far closer to home….?

 Detective Sergeant Lachlan Coleridge has seen it all. A veteran cop currently stationed in the rural town of Moree, there’s nothing much that surprises him. But when two children are burned to death during an explosion in an illegal meth lab, he struggles to put the memory behind him. In desperation, he seeks counseling.

 Ava Wolfe is a Sydney Harbour Hospital psychiatrist who has agreed to cover her friend’s practice in the country. As the only psychiatrist in town, Lachlan has no choice but to make an appointment with the feisty doctor he met a month earlier at his brother’s wedding. They shared a steamy encounter in the cloak room at the reception center and he’s nervous about her discovering he’s married.

 Ava’s memories of the darkly handsome detective haven’t faded over time. When he approaches her for therapy, she’s forced to set aside her attraction in order to give him the help he so desperately needs. After years of exposure to the worst mankind can offer, Lachlan Coleridge’s spirit has been ravaged. She yearns to help him, but she’s not sure that he’ll let her…

 To be a cop is to be tough – physically and mentally. There’s no room for weakness. If it gets out that Lachlan’s seeking help, any chance he has for promotion will be jeopardized. But he’s drowning in a sea of pain; of darkness and confusion and it’s only a matter of time before he topples into the abyss…

Can he trust the only woman who appears to understand him? Is he prepared to put his career on the line in return for saving his soul? And what will happen when she discovers his deceit? Will he open up to Ava and let her help him…before it’s too late?

 Isobel Donnelly has a perfect life. Married to a renowned orthopedic surgeon, she also has a successful and satisfying career as a pediatric nurse at the prestigious Sydney Harbour Hospital. Life couldn’t get any better.

But then her babies arrive and the husband she adores turns into a cold and angry stranger. Her perfect world is shattered the first night he hits her.

Now, she’s trapped in a violent marriage with nowhere to turn. Her husband has threatened to kill her and the kids if she ever dares to leave. In public, they’re the perfect couple, but inside, she’s slowly dying… 

Mason Alexander has relocated to the city to take up his dream job as a pediatric doctor at the prestigious Sydney Harbour Hospital. Recovering from a failed marriage, he’s determined to put the change of scene to good use. The distractions and demands of his new job are just what he needs to get his life back on track.

Then he runs into Isobel Donnelly and his world is once again turned upside down. He’s loved her since they were children. She’s the reason his marriage failed. But Isobel’s still married to his nemesis: the incomparable Nigel Donnelly. From all accounts, the two of them are still blissfully in love.

Vowing to steer clear of the woman who’s haunted his dreams for far too many years, Mason does his best to avoid her, but Isobel continues to seek him out and he can’t help but notice her assurances about her happy marriage appear a little forced.

When she arrives at work with a blackened eye, he’s immediately suspicious: There’s no way she fell over toys left in the way. The thought that Nigel might be abusing her is abhorrent, but the signs are there for all to see. 

Will Mason be able to convince her to leave her husband…or will they both die trying?
