Author talk with Mercedes Mercier

The most dangerous man is the one with nothing to lose …

Only a handful of inmates in Westmead Prison have committed crimes so atrocious that they’ve been locked away for life, and for fifteen years, convicted murderer Tomas Kovak has refused to disclose where he hid he body of his victim.
When Kovak is diagnosed with terminal cancer, intense pressure is put on Dr Laura Fleming, criminal psychologist, to find the location of Kovak’s victim so her grieving family can find some sort of closure.
Laura has to use all of her training, skills and instinct to form a connection with the cold, remorseless killer, a man who has refused any psychological assessment since the day he confessed to the murder.
With every session, Laura becomes more and more convinced that something about Kovak’s story doesn’t ring true, and as his health rapidly deteriorates, the pressure on Laura ramps up. She becomes increasingly desperate, resorting to unconventional methods to find out what she can from the secretive man.
As she inches closer to the truth, she discovers some people will stop at nothing to keep the past hidden … and the people Laura cares most about are fair game.
“Tension and menace … Mercier wields exceptional talent” Candice Fox
