Review

Praise for "The Dragon Man"

"A straightforward police story with a terrific plot, nuanced characters and solid procedures, served up on refreshing new turf."--Marilyn Stasio, "The New York Times Book Review"

"A first-rate piece of crime writing."--"The Washington Post Book World"

"Colorful . . . Disher has literary talent and imagination."--"Chicago Tribune "

"Disher makes his characters as interesting as his plot."--"Portsmouth Herald "

"A police procedural of a very different kind . . . A 'down under' atmosphere that most American readers will find unique."--"The Plain Dealer "

"The American debut for Australian crime writer extraordinaire Disher is as complex and dark as anything by Ian Rankin or Michael Connelly."--"Las Vegas Mercury

""Disher delivers an intelligent, atmospheric police procedural . . . Fans of such gritty yet cerebral crime novelists as Ian Rankin and Jack Harvey should be well pleased."--"Publishers Weekly"

"This series debut from the prolific Disher ("The Sunken Road", 1996, etc.) doesn't read like one, thanks to fully formed characters and wall-to-wall mysteries. The offbeat setting's a bonus for US readers."--"Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Hal Challis series
"This series boasts careful, realistic casework, but there's enough darkness and ambiguity to suit John Harvey fans and a kind of which-way-is-up sense of the police force that recalls early James Ellroy. Moody, inventive, and extremely hard to put down." --Booklist

Product Description

That first one, last week, she hadn't been a challenge at all. Drunk, half-drugged, hitchhiking, she'd been too easy. At least he'd got to use his head a little tonight. His headlights probed the darkness as he carried her away, high above the rottenness that was always there under the light of the sun.

Summer on the Peninsula. The heat's ramping up, the usual holiday madness building. D.I. Hal Challis is already recycling his shower water and starting to dread Christmas. But this year there's something more. Women abducted and murdered on the Old Highway, a pall of fear over the scorched paddocks. The media are demanding answers-and Challis's sleepy beat is set to explode.

Garry Disher has published almost fifty titles—fiction, children's books, anthologies, textbooks, the Wyatt thrillers and the Peninsula Crimes series. He has won numerous awards, including the German Crime Prize (twice) and two Ned Kelly Best Crime novel awards, for Chain of Evidence (2007) and Wyatt (2010). Garry lives on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.

'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

'Disher has been described as Australia's answer to Michael Connelly or Ian Rankin and there is no doubting his expertise at carving out elegant page-turners with a social conscience.' West Australian
