"On Monday, March 28, 1966 Sir Walter Springfellow, head of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation, left his home in Sydney to return to Melbourne. He got out of the car, walked into the airport terminal and disappeared. No body was ever found, and the case remained unsolved for twenty-one years.
As a young policeman Scobie Malone investigated the disappearance. Years later some bones are found up in the Hills which are presumed to be Sir Walter's, and Detective Inspector Malone finds himself back on the case. His first task is to break the news to Venetia Springfellow, Sir Walter's glamorous widow, whose ruthless ambition has made of the Springfellow Corporation a hugely successful company."
