What happens to the children who slip through the official safety nets of child protection agencies? What must they suffer? What must they become? Journalist Noel Baker finds a disturbing suggestion in a coroner's report: that the death of young Belinda Carey may not have been at the hands of her neglectful and abusive parents, but may have connections with the deaths of other abused children. All she has is just a glimpse of a possible pattern, of things not quite as they seem. As Noel's investigation unfolds, the killer writes a diary. A diary revealing a brutal and scarring past, and a chilling present. A diary revealing that the killer is one of a circle of old university friends. But which one? A gripping story of suspense and dark secrets from one of Australia's finest writers. 'There were demons in my dreams again last night, they made me think of you... I give them a sacrifice now, or at least they think I do. To put it into plain words, when the demons come I kill the next one. And then they go away.
