TOP OF THE LAKE: CHINA GIRL is a crime mystery that finds Detective Robin Griffin recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin discovers ‘China Girl’ didn’t die alone. Haunted by a daughter given up at birth, Robin desperately wants to find her, yet dreads revealing the truth of her conception. But Robin’s search to discover ‘China Girl’s’ identity will take her into the city’s darkest recesses and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.
