When a scarlet-coloured key lands on his newsdesk, reporter Seth VerBeek is suddenly thrust into a thrilling crime mystery.
He finds the corpse of a tattooed woman.
Who is she? Why did she die?
Like the newshound he is, he follows his instincts and gets a lot more than he bargained for.

‘Set in Brisbane, many of the locations are familiar to me and those that aren’t, are so well described that I feel I could find my way there blindfolded. ‘The Scarlet Key’ is all about life choices. It shows us that even when we think we don’t have a say, our future really is in our hands. A riveting read’… Nene, Yeppoon, 2016
