The Killing Field
When a teenage girl goes missing in a country town, the ensuing search uncovers five bodies buried in a field. Called in to investigate, a task force, hand-picked by Detective Senior Sergeant Lachlan McKenzie and headed up by Detective Eve Winter must determine whether the gravesite is a dumping ground for a killer traveling through or worse, that a serial killer is living among this tight knit community.
What happens when a homicide task force embeds itself into a town? What happens to the townspeople when they come under the forensic-like scrutiny of police? What secrets are to be revealed when a town’s innocence is lost?
The Killing Field explores the lives of the detectives living away from home and the people who are put under their microscope. It examines how the process of detective work affects both the guilty and innocent.
