On, Off Summary

Australia's best-loved storyteller delivers her most addictive - and chilling - novel yet.

At Connecticut's most prestigious medical research institute, something is very wrong. It's the 1960s and America is in ferment, but at the Hug, the daily business of research continues, and the hierarchies of power remain undisturbed. That is, until the body of a woman is found in one of the animal research laboratories one morning - and then another.

The best-selling author of The Thorn Birds and Angel Puss delivers an edge-of-the-seat thriller with many a twist and turn as the lives - and pasts - of those in this little university town unravel.

    America in 1968 is in turmoil and the leafy Holloman suburb of Carew is being silently terrorised by a series of vicious and systematic rapes. When finally one victim finds the courage to speak out and go to the police, the rapist escalates to murder. For Captain Carmine Delmonico, it seems to be a case with no clues. And it comes as the Holloman Police Department is troubled: A lieutenant is out of his depth, a sergeant is out of control, and into this mix comes the beautiful, ruthlessly ambitious new trainee, Helen MacIntosh, daughter of the influential president of Chubb University.
