Amanda Plummer was 15 and pregnant when her parents sent her to a church home for unmarried mothers. Like many families, the stigma associated with having a pregnant, unmarried daughter was too much for the family to bear within their close-knit community. Forced to relinquish her baby in 1972 Amanda is desperate to reconnect with the child that has been missing from her life for forty years. Her search coincides with the murder investigation that unwittingly involve a number of key members of the Peninsular Golf Club.

Foul Play is a murder mystery highlighting the incredibly distressing issues associated with the forced adoption policies that were once common practice by governments across Australia.


Absolutely above par. Author, Carol Richmond has successfully played the perfect pitch shot in the development of this absorbing murder mystery. Foul Play is an intriguing, page-turning whodunit set on Sydney’s beautiful Northern Beaches.
