Walter Blunt is already the city of Adelaide's most cut-rate private eye and he's not about to do himself any favours - taking on a case even the police can't solve.
He's used to following other sleazy little men around town as they cheat on their wives, and getting paid just well enough to keep his business afloat, but when the distraught parents of a missing woman, Lucy Burrowes, beg for his help to crack the case, he finds he just can't say no. Completely out of his depth, he must use his wits to solve the mystery ... and it could cost him a lot more than money.
The police think Lucy is the victim of an opportunistic attacker, an evil sex criminal still at large. But Blunt doesn't lack for suspects... There's her philandering boss... her sexy roommate... a thuggish ex-con... all with their own dirty secrets.
The deeper Blunt delves into sordid details of abduction and murder, the further he risks his own neck against a brutal killer, a sinister conspiracy and the police, who'll be happy to arrest him if he gets in their way.
Soon he will have to choose between the pursuit of justice and saving his own neck.
The Deadlier Sin is a hard-boiled detective story with a shock ending that will leave you breathless - a must for all fans of classic and contemporary noir from Raymond Chandler to Michael Connelly.
