When an American cult moves to the Gold Coast, freelance journalist Scout Davis's investigative antennae start quivering. She sets out to expose the cult's bizarre practices, but when she learns the identity of a recent recruit, her quest becomes personal. And dangerous. Meanwhile, someone is cutting up girls' underwear at an exclusive school and Scout agrees to look into it. The sinister secret behind the vandalism is not nice. Not at all. But Scout has her secrets too. In the dead of night she sneaks out with an underground group of yarn bombers to decorate the locality with artworks. Scout has a sneaking suspicion that the local police sergeant, Rafe Kelly, is hot on her tail.
