Review

"An intelligent, atmospheric police procedural...Fans of such gritty yet cerebral crime novelists such as Ian Rankin and Jack Harvey should be well pleased." Publishers Weekly "The Dragon Man is unquestionably Disher's masterpiece, an astonishingly told caper that's tough, tender, poignant and totally captivating." Age "A straightforward police story with a terrific plot, nuanced characters and solid procedures, served up on refreshing new turf. Done with smooth, assured mastery." New York Times "Challis is a fine creation: strong and resourceful, yet with enough human frailty to satisfy the tastes of readers raised on Connelly, Rankin or Patricia Cornwell. This is intelligent, well-crafted fare, enlivened by a sharp awareness of society and the dark undercurrents beneath it." West Australian --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
