A stylish and brilliantly paced thriller from a great Australian writer.
Wealthy drug-company mogul Duncan Hamilton is on the run - wanted for the murder of a high class Polynesian hooker. Her funeral, on a wet winter's day, is the beginning of his quest for the real killer. Hamilton's transformation from fugitive to hunter sends him on a dangerous trail from Melbourne to Paris and back, running the gauntlet of agents trying to cover up mistakes of the Fench nuclear programme in the Pacific and ambitious rival businessmen who want him framed or eliminated.
Enemies can be allies and friends can be treacherous as Hamilton discovers which face in the rain belongs to the killer.
