Watch the World Burn

Leah Giarratano

Klappentext: When a spate of seemingly unconnected acid and arson attacks begin around Sydney, Sergeant Jill Jackson must work to solve the crimes and clear the name of an innocent man

Miriam Caine, aged 70, is dining with her son when she bursts into flames in the restaurant of a five-star hotel. The restaurant's manager, Troy Berrigan, is first to her aid, but the woman later dies of her injuries. When investigators find accelerants on the victim's face and clothing, the incident becomes a police matter, and attention is turned to Berrigan—a fallen hero cop—who fits the arsonist profile. Berrigan knows he's not the killer, but he also knows that at the time of the incident, he was the only person close enough to have set her on fire. When he's connected to another death, Troy must do all he can to discover what really happened to Miriam Caine—and whether her death was the beginning of an orchestrated campaign of terror. While on study leave, Detective Sergeant Jill Jackson becomes caught up in the investigation. Working with Federal Agent Gabriel Delahunt, she is determined to find out what happened to Miriam Caine, because this case for her is not only about murder and maiming in Sydney—it will change Jill Jackson's life forever.

Black Ice

Leah Giarratano

Klappentext: Working undercover in Sydney's murky drug world, living in a run-down apartment, and making unlikely friends, Detective Sergeant Jill Jackson sees firsthand what devastation illegal drugs can yield. Jill's sister Cassie has a new boyfriend, and like her, he is one of the beautiful people of Sydney—rich, goodlooking, great job, great car, and seen in all the right places. A high-flying lawyer who is doing pro bono work to keep a drug dealer out of jail, he is also keeping Cassie supplied with cocaine and crystal meth. When Cassie overdoses and is dumped at the hospital, her life begins to spiral out of control. Seren Templeton is just out of jail—kept away from her son for two years for something she didn't do. And now she is ready to get her revenge on the man responsible. Things start to go awry when these worlds collide and Jill and Cassie meet on opposite sides of the law.

Voodoo Doll

Leah Giarratano

Klappentext: A year after the death of the man who abducted her, Sergeant Jill Jackson has been promoted and is stronger than she’s been in years. With the promotion comes a transfer to a task force targeting gang-related home invasions, a new partner, and some of the grisliest cases Jill has ever encountered. The gang is believed to be responsible for at least five brutal home invasions over the past two months, the most recent culminating in a vicious machete attack that left one of the victims crippled. When the violence escalates to murder, Jill suddenly finds herself hunting a psychopath in a race against time.

Vodka Doesn't Freeze

Leah Giarratano

Klappentext: When a middle-aged man is brutally murdered in the hills overlooking a children's pool, it is immediately clear to Sergeant Jill Jackson that someone has stopped a dangerous pedophile in his tracks. Jill is at first ambivalent about pursuing the killer, but when more men die—all of them known to police as child sex offenders—she is forced to admit that a serial killer is on the loose. As the investigation deepens, Jill unearths a long-established pedophile ring, a club of wealthy men who have thought until now that that they were untouchable. As she faces predators and their victims, a psychotherapist losing her mind, and her own nightmares come to life, Jill is forced to decide whether or not she really wants to catch this killer.
