The Secret Place
When an anonymous tip about the unsolved murder of a schoolboy is hand-delivered to Stephen Moran by the teenage Holly Mackey, he knows it is his opportunity to get a foot in the door of the coveted Murder Squad. Working alongside the abrasive Detective Antoinette Conway, Stephen finds himself plunged into a world of intense teenage rivalries, and even more intense friendships and loyalties at St. Kilda’s School. Stephen is young and likable, and he seems like the perfect person to gain the confidence of the girls. But the headmistress is willing to go to great lengths to keep scandal at bay. And Holly’s father, Detective Frank Mackey, is ready to intervene and put a halt to the investigation if any evidence seems to point to Holly. Will Antoinette and Stephen be able to infiltrate the private world of the teenage witnesses and suspects and discover what really happened to Chris Harper?
