All it took was a lapseâ€¦a momentary lapseâ€¦to bring Clementine Jonesâ€™ world crashing down. Now sheâ€™s living like a hermit in small-town Katinga, coaching the local footy club. Sheâ€™s supposed to be lying low, but here she is, with her team on the cusp of their first premiership in fifty yearsâ€”and the whole bloody town counting on her, cheering her on. So why the hell would her star player quit on the eve of the finals? Itâ€™s a question she wishes sheâ€™d left alone. Others are starting to ask questions tooâ€”questions about her. Clemâ€™s not the only one with a secret, and as tension builds, the dark violence just below the townâ€™s surface threatens to erupt. Pretty soon thereâ€™ll be nowhere left for Clem to hide.
