Looking out over an ebb tide from the back verandah was like watching God paint stripes...

Disgraced former lawyer Clementine Jones is on the shores of paradise--Queensland's Great Sandy Straits--trying to outrun her past.

Bored with her house-sitting gig, she becomes a reluctant recruit to the local environmental group, campaigning to save an endangered turtle as developers close in. Then a body is found at the base of a quarry, and Clem's world is turned upside down.

The police say suicide. Clem's convinced it was murder. She also knows she's the only one interested in tracking down the killer.

Well, the only one apart from her friend Torrens, ex-con and reformed standover man. And he's got his own fight on his hands.

Sarahcast off the lines to her legal career not long after being declared Australian Corporate Lawyer of the Year in 2016. These days she's something of a vagabond, choosing to live on a sailboat with her husband, Dean, writing novels, enjoying everything this big blue planet has to offer and chasing an endless summer. Her Clementine Jones series, which chronicles the crime-busting adventures of a fierce and feisty former lawyer, has been twice shortlisted for the Australian Crime Writers Association Ned Kelly Awards and received a starred Kirkusreview. The most recent instalment, White Throat, was released in December 2020.

'Clementine Jones is a heroine for our times: fierce, feisty and fallible.' Candice Fox
