Dyman was once a peaceful Australian community until rocked by murder, organized crime, and corruption. Susan Mayfield, daughter of the late Mayor Brody Mayfi eld, struggles to move beyond the untimely death of her father while she documents the changes happening in her small town with the help of its close-knit residents.
As the local economy once again thrives, Susan collects memories—memories of past days and years—which she will soon document in her column published with Faculty Press. Despite the past being past, Susan suspects Dyman is still infiltrated by criminals and dirty money, and she hopes to reveal all.
Soon, though, her journalistic goals come to a shuddering halt with the appearance of her dead father’s ghost. Susan’s mother Bronwyn struggles to cope with her late husband’s spectre as the two women seek some explanation as to why Brody would visit his family from beyond the grave. Is it possible Susan’s investigations have put her in the path of deadly danger?
