All it took was a lapse...a momentary lapse...to bring Clementine Jones' world crashing down. Now she's living like a hermit in small-town Katinga, coaching the local footy club. She's supposed to be lying low, but here she is, with her team on the cusp of their first premiership in fifty years-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? It's a question she wishes she'd left alone. Others are starting to ask questions too-questions about her. Clem's not the only one with a secret, and as tension builds, the dark violence just below the town's surface threatens to erupt. Pretty soon there'll be nowhere left for Clem to hide.
