Summary
Veronica Cruickshank's youngest child Roland is her idealistic one - a fighter of lost causes, and the one that always needs protecting, particularly from himself. So when she hears he is back in Hobart helping an old school friend, Treen McShane, Veronica tries to track him down - but all she finds are second hand reports, whispers of horrific abuse, stories of a small child being hurt. Then Roland sends Veronica a text message, asking her to go to the Slipping Place, high on Mount Wellington, a picnic spot known only to their family. Here she discovers Treen's frozen body. Knowing Roland will be suspected of leaving Treen to die, Veronica resolves to find out what really happened. But as long-buried truths slowly surface, she uncovers a secret that brings the violence closer to home than she could have ever imagined..
