Product description

Book Description

Set in Noosa, a page-turning crime novel in which the reader finds themselves cheering on the criminal- the old-school professional thief Wyatt.

Product Description

Wyatt needs a job.

A bank job would be nice. Or a security van. But these days armed robbery means working with cocky young idiots or strung-out meth-heads—and Wyatt’s not that desperate.

Luckily, a broker in Queensland knows someone who wants a painting stolen. Which is how Wyatt finds himself in Noosa, casing a rich paedophile’s house for entry points and escape routes.

That’s fine. It’s what Wyatt does.

The double-cross that’s supposed to end with him getting killed? Less fine.

The heat is on.


Garry Disher has published almost fifty titles—fiction, children's books, anthologies, textbooks, the Wyatt thrillers and the Mornington Peninsula mysteries. 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.

Praise for Garry Disher

‘For the connoisseur of crime the Wyatt series represents Disher at his stylish best...wicked and wonderful. Welcome back, Wyatt.’ Sydney Morning Herald

‘With The Heat, Disher continues to tap into that need that we have for anti-heroes...Couple that with a twisted, tense and taut thriller and once again, Garry Disher has turned out a winner.’ Aust Crime Fiction 

‘Disher’s terse, spare prose never falters.’ Weekend Press

‘Garry Disher is one of Australia’s most exceptional crime writers...One of the most delightful aspects of a Garry Disher novel is the fascinating array of characters he assembles...The spare and sparse language, particularly in the way Disher frames the landscape, makes lines leap from the page.’ 4.5-starred review, Good Reading

‘Writing of the highest calibre, neatly crafted and strongly evocative.’ Sunday Mail

The Heat is beautifully crafted. Like its hero, it's lean, spare and trenchant…Disher provides a searing commentary on the way we choose to live now.’ Age/Sydney Morning Herald

‘Sparely written, with an entertaining set of villains, an unfathomable antihero and dry humour, reading this book is like riding a thrilling switchback.’ West Australian

‘Garry Disher deserves his reputation as one of Australia’s finest crime writers.’ Stuff NZ

‘Disher’s Wyatt, perfectly crafted in gripping, calculated prose, is someone you’ll happily follow into heists, thefts, and stopping their own murder.’ Readings

‘Every word counts in Disher’s books, but you’re never left with a sense that the writing is too sparse. The sentences are vividly alive. I read the book in a day, which shows what a page-turner it is.’ Otago Daily Times

‘The fast-moving spellbinding plot keeps the reader turning the pages and makes it hard to put the book down and return to real life.’ ArtsHub

‘This latest installment of Australia’s favourite crook is fast-paced and action-packed...Readers unfamiliar with Disher’s work are bound to want to seek out his backlist; fans of his Wyatt series will not be disappointed...A brilliant read!’ BookMooch
