Once a vigilante, now a cop ... but Lexi Winter still plays by her own rules. A fast-paced, suspenseful thriller for readers of Candice Fox and Sarah Bailey.
Ace hacker, ex-prostitute, Jack Daniels drinker and part-time vigilante Lexi Winter is now working with the police, with a new enemy in her sights and an old foe on her mind.
Most probationary constables would baulk at chasing a drug dealer into a train tunnel in the dead of night - not Lexi. But when she emerges, injured but alive, to face the wrath of her boss it's clear that while Lexi may now be in uniform, she has as much trouble with authority as ever. Just to prove it, Lexi is quietly using her hacking skills to investigate a notorious drug-dealing Sydney crime family with links to her old prey, the paedophile Damon Vaughn.
As her colleague Detective Sergeant Finn Carson investigates a death on a Sydney building site that leads him to the picturesque Wondabyne train station on the Hawkesbury River, Inspector Rachael Langley oversees an enquiry that is becoming ever more complex as multiple lines of investigation seem to interweave.
What they don't know is that Lexi is the only one who can unravel them - if only she would toe the line ...
A Note From the Publisher
Her favourite place in the world is the family property, where she writes her stories overlooking mountains crisscrossed with farmland, bordered by the beauty of the Australian bush, and where, at the end of the day, she can spend time with family, friends, a good Irish whiskey and a copy of her next favourite book.
Praise for Unforgiven
'Phenomenal. Lexi Winter is the gritty hero I didn't know I needed ... I'm now desperate for more' - bestselling Australian author Nicola Moriarty
'A gritty, twisty journey of suspense. Recommended.' Canberra Weekly
'Sarah Barrie is a fabulous author who brings thriller and mystery together in stories that are page turners and I cannot recommend this one enough, it really is fabulous.' Chiller Thriller reviews
'I found Unforgiven compulsively readable, despite its dark subject matter, and look forward to reading Sarah Barrie's future work in the competitive Aussie Noir genre - she's up there with the best! Substantial trigger warnings notwithstanding, I'd wholeheartedly recommend Unforgiven to any reader who loves gritty crime fiction in a contemporary setting. Readers who enjoy Candice Fox, Val McDermid and Stuart MacBride will gobble this one up - and those are not associations I bestow lightly!' Goodreads review
