Publication Date: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

Detective Lexie Rogers is tough, smart and at the top of her game. She's seen it all, from bikies, blood and betrayal to drugs, deviants and deception ... and the violent knife attack that almost killed her as a young cop on the beat.

Lexie's sent on the job of a lifetime -- to go deep undercover, as beautiful Lara Wild, a drug distributor, to expose a diverse drug dealing syndicate involving some of Sydney's most treacherous criminals. What she discovers is that being undercover is the safest place to be, especially when you're a cop with target on your head, but one false move means she'll die. And creeping from the shadows is the darkness of her past, something she can never outrun.

Lexie knows she can't trust anyone -- but the trouble is, she's not even sure if she can trust herself.​ 

Karen M. Davis

Karen Davis was a New South Wales police officer for twenty years. Joining at the age of nineteen, she completing her training at the police academy in 1987 and started her career on the streets of Newtown, in the inner west of Sydney.  She then moved on to work as a detective and undercover operative in a variety of sections, all of which specialised in the investigation of organised crime.

When Karen left the force nine years ago her mother (author of twelve novels, the late Lynne Wilding) encouraged her to write about her police experiences.  Creating her own little book of memoirs uncovered a love of writing and a real life situation triggered the inspiration for her first novel.

Karen's first fictional crime novel 'SINISTER INTENT' was released in August 2013. This was followed by 'DEADLY OBSESSION' released in August 2014.  'FATAL MISTAKE' will be released in July 2017. All three novel's feature Detective Lexie Rogers and are set in Sydney.
