Product description

Review

‘The business of a novelist is to tell a story. Jon Cleary has that talent in abundance’
Sunday Express

‘Jon Cleary’s writing has lost none of its youth, enthusiasm and ability to fascinate’
Daily Telegraph, Australia

From the Back Cover

Homicide detective Scobie Malone returns to tackle one of his toughest cases yet: in the gay community of Sydney, where ‘gay bashings’ are a daily occurrence, the culprits are being eliminated, each shooting apparently carried out by a different person. Whoever they are, Malone soon realises that he is dealing with an intelligent, highly dangerous killer. At the same time, this difficult case is causing tension within the force as prejudice of all kinds – race, creed, colour and sexual inclination – rear their ugly heads.

It’s bad enough that the killer seems to be one step ahead, constantly protected by the gay network who are refusing to co-operate, but when Malone’s own precious daughter has a near escape, his determination to crack the case and the killer’s identity intensifies, while he tries to remain professional.

A tense, topical and compulsive novel, 'A Different Turf' brings to the surface some important social issues as well as spinning an intriguing mystery, guaranteed to keep Scobie Malone’s fans hooked.

“The business of a novelist is to tell a story. Jon Cleary has that talent in abundance.”
SUNDAY EXPRESS

“The Malone stories come alive though their setting…Cleary’s writing is seamless and his plots imaginative and mature”
MIAMI HERALD
