Product description

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

There were a lot of characters. I liked the familiarity of the setting and the slow burn to the clmax

What an amazing author.
The fact that I missed my train stops while reading this speaks for itself.
Reading a book that mentions places that are local to me was also a first.
Truly a well written book.

I enjoyed the fact that the setting for this book is familiar, both geographically and climatically. The characters are flawed and believable and the plot unwinds with accelerating tension.

I am newly addicted to Gary Disher's novels. Having lived on the Mornington Peninsula and also having had a retail business in Hastings, I can virtually live inside these books. The characters, the way the author has captured the beauty and the darkness in the culture of the Peninsula is outstanding. I will read all of these novels and then all the Wyatt novels as well. Outstanding work from a fabulous author.

Have just discovered Gary Disher as an adult author. This book has a tight plot, great characters and makes the reader want to know more. Very much looking forward to sharing more Hal Challis cases.
