Review

Praise for Whispering Death

"Top-notch ... Trust me, mate: Readers will want to make a return visit to Disher's Australia."
--The Christian Science Monitor

"Versatile and prolific, Disher keeps this series fresh and again delivers a procedural with real authority."
--Booklist

"It's hard to convey the richness and fluidity of Disher's style as he sends us along the ride...saving room for a perfectly placed line or the gesture that sums up a character ... those who haven't read Disher before will wonder why it took them so long."
--Reviewing the Evidence

"Very entertaining."
--Gumshoe Review

Praise for the Hal Challis series

"Terrific plot, nuanced characters and solid procedures, served up on a refreshing new turf."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Delightful ... BUY IT."
--New York Magazine

"First rate."
--Washington Post Book World

"The fifth book featuring Disher's team of romantically involved crime-solvers has them investigating the Down Underbelly of an Australian vacation spot."
--Entertainment Weekly

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

"Terrific."
--Seattle Times

"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

‘Help me, please help me.’

Young, naked, filthy, the woman must have stumbled through bushland to get here. She was clasping the top fence wire with both hands, rocking and keening like an abandoned child.

A rapist in a police uniform is stalking Inspector Hal Challis’s Peninsula beat, a very clever female cat burglar has also appeared on his patch—and he’s in hot water with the boss. Again.

Meanwhile, at the Waterloo police station, something interesting is going on between Constable Pam Murphy and Jeannie Schiff, the feisty young sergeant on secondment from the Sex Crimes Unit.

In his sixth Peninsula novel, Garry Disher keeps the tension and intrigue ramped up on multiple fronts while he takes his characters in intriguing new directions.


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.

'With so many exhibitionist forensic experts showing off their extraordinary skills, it's a rare pleasure to sit down to a traditional detective story in which solid police work solves a crime. Inspector Hal Challis is very much in charge of the operations in an excellent Australian series written by Garry Disher...There are no shootouts here. Just the drama of people from very different social classes locked in battle over the schools, the services, the beaches, the views - and a way of life that has already gone behind a cloud.' New York Times

'DI Challis and his sergeant Ellen Destry...are both deftly, yet complexly drawn characters: two of the best in the genre and Disher easily one of the best writers.' Weekend Herald

'Disher is a fine writer about place and also people. Challis, in all his testiness and kindness, is a carefully crafted senior policeman...As in all the best police series, there's continuity and change...Go Garry, Go!' Sue Turnbull, Age/Sydney Morning Herald

'In all, this is a world-class police novel and Disher continues to be one of our best and most consistent crime novelists. Highly Recommended.' Canberra Times

'This is classic Disher, the taut writing bringing a complex plot into as sharp relief as the vivid settings and dread-laden atmosphere do the fully rounded characters.' West Australian

'Disher works like a biographer, calmly attempting to assemble order in his characters' chaotic lives. Disher cares about their interlinked worlds as much as he does about labyrinth plots, fetishised violence and the showy brainwork of his coppers. As always this grand master propels us methodically yet elegiacally. But he doesn't just provide classy entertainment. His fiction is a kind of social barometer of prevailing tensions in the community, especially in the outlying badlands of Australia's provincial coastal towns.' Weekend Australian
