For Jack, Stephanie's death is devastating from every angle. Not only is the woman he loved gone in the most horrible way, but he has to live with the reality that she was living a very colourful double life of which he had no idea. Unable to cope despite offers of support from all who care about him, Jack takes off with just his dog for company and keeps driving until he arrives in the tiny Victorian town of Hill Cross. While Jack drops out of life for a while, his mates and firefighting colleagues want answers and start following their own leads. And that's when things start getting complex.
Redhanded is a new direction for Nene Davies but she carries it off with aplomb. It's different to the Distance series but just as readable and shows Nene's depth as an author.
