Jane Halifax returns to profile a killer no one can see

It’s been twenty years since forensic psychiatrist Jane Halifax (Rebecca Gibney, Wanted, Packed to the Rafters) worked in the field, but a sniper is terrorising the city and Commander Tom Saracen (Antony La Paglia, Riviera, The Code, Without a Trace) urgently needs her assistance. Jane comes to realise that the killer’s invisibility to the surveillance cameras and his sophisticated hacking skills hold the clue to what he wants. Though Jane dismisses a threatening letter as the work of a crank, other things are not so easy to ignore. And when her partner, Ben (Craig Hall, Underbelly: Razor, A Place to Call Home) is brutally murdered, Jane is forced to confront a terrifying possibility: that the killer could be after her. Set in a world where facial recognition and data mining are eroding our personal freedoms every day, HALIFAX: Retribution brings Jane Halifax back to a world she has never been able to leave; sleuthing her way to the truth behind the cleverest criminal minds.
