Product Description

In 1992, toddler Yasmin Munoz went missing from a rainforest picnic spot near Cairns. No trace of her has ever been found. Yet in 2012 Andrew Todd, a wealthy businessman and former mayor of Cairns, dies, and leaves in his will directions for a search for the missing child, who if she is still alive must now be a young woman. Cairns detective Cass Diamond is soon asked to help with the search. But Cass sometimes exceeds professional boundaries… She discovers that in 1990, popular university student Chloe Campion had also gone missing, from a party in Brisbane celebrating her engagement to the son of Andrew Todd. Police inquiries at the time of the child’s disappearance found no link with the Campion case. But Cass is curious…

On her own, Cass delves deeper, and is led to a farm on the Atherton Tableland outside Cairns, where her curiosity gets her kidnapped with two other women, and into a hostage drama with an unpredictable assailant…

Praise for Caroline de Costa and the Cass Diamond series:

“One of the pleasures of this novel is that de Costa is unafraid to spend time with the characters and the landscape, and Double Madness benefits from this soaking in. While never brutal or bloodthirsty, it nonetheless feels heavy with danger. ****”
Fiona Hardy, bookseller and committee member, the Australian Crime Writers Association


“Authentic and snappy.  [Double Madness is] an assured debut into crime fiction by Caroline de Costa.”
Marianne Delacourt, author


“Caroline de Costa’s Cairns is a community rife with secrets, and where for every secret there exists someone ready to take advantage.  Fast-paced, unsentimental and forensic, Double Madness is sure to entertain.”
– David Whish-Wilson, author
