Product description


'A police procedural ... featuring a squad of interestingly flawed homicide cops ... working multiple cases that feature multiple puzzles and a pool of incisively well-drawn murder suspects ... First rate.' New York Times Book Review'Gripping... As the story neatly advances from the viewpoints of characters both major and minor, Disher artfully employs misdirection... Fans of Peter Temple will find much to like in this dark whodunit.' Publishers Weekly'Procedural fans looking for something a little different will devour this one... Enough dark overtones to elevate the series into the Ian Rankin league.' Booklist'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

Product Description

An unidentified man is fished out of the sea with an anchor strapped to his waist. And for Detective Inspector Hal Challis, this sparks the beginning of a chilling series of shotgun killings.

As Challis investigates, a farmer on the peninsula erupts into violence and is the target of a massive manhunt. Meanwhile Challis's own emotional life is strained, and some of his police colleagues have allowed their public and private responsibilities to blur.

And then Challis finds some aerial photographs in the possession of his friend Kitty that link her to the murders.

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.

'Taut and terrific, Kittyhawk Down is crime fiction at its best.' Age

'Kittyhawk Down is a tough little thriller that never lets up and offers an all-too-convincing snapshot of the fraying at the margins of every modern city.' Hobart Mercury
