Five years after the shocking events that rocked her hometown in New Zealand, Detective Robin Griffin has returned to Sydney and is trying to rebuild her life. When the unidentified body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realizes 'China Girl' didn't die alone. Meanwhile, haunted by disturbing dreams of the baby girl she gave up years ago, Robin reaches out to the family of her now teenage daughter. Like her birth mother, Mary is passionate and stubborn. And she's deep in the throes of a romantic attachment to a dangerously charismatic older man. The case will take her into the city's criminal underbelly, and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.
