Molly McQueen needs a new challenge. Her move to Australia hasn't worked out and now she's back home and ready to start her new venture, McQueen's Agency. But Molly soon finds that hiring temps out to local businesses is tough going, until the day a lucrative job comes in which seems almost too good to be true.
On her first day at the new job, Molly senses that something isn't quite right — but the Agency desperately needs the work. And when Molly begins to discover more about her employers and what they're really up to, she suddenly finds herself in grave danger.
Meantime, for Detective Sergeant Charlie Johns, the mysterious discovery of a sailor's body in the harbour is about to get a whole lot stranger as more and more clues start to point straight to Molly McQueen.
