I should ask your department's accountant whether he's missing nine hundred thousand bucks
This is the anonymous message that changes Sandra Mahoney's life
After taking time off to raise her young son, Sandra Mahoney is nervously re-entering the working week. When a powerful Australian bureaucrat-and friend of her dead mother-offers her a position, she leaps at the chance. Then, days later, this woman is accused of theft and computer fraud. Sandra, out of obligation and friendship-and convinced that the charges are false-begins to investigate the supposed theft.
In a battle of wits, she finds herself up against an elusive and unscrupulous opponent as she desperately searches for the truth. As Mahoney delves deeper into the investigation, she realizes this is a battle where no one's allegiance can be taken for granted. She must learn to juggle her work with the demands of raising her children to finally get to the truth behind this compelling case of computer crime, loyalty and betrayal.
The Trojan Dog is the remarkable, award-winning first book about investigator Sandra Mahoney. Author Dorothy Johnston explores Mahoney's struggles balancing her life as a mother with her career in the law against a backdrop of a city-and a country-on the cusp of political change.
