*** SUNDAY TIMES CRIME CLUB STAR PICK ****** WINNER OF THE NED KELLY LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD ***'A superb chronicler of cop culture' - SUNDAY TIMES'The greatness of Garry Disher' IAN RANKIN'The equal of Joseph Wambaugh and James Lee Burke' - THE TIMES________________________________________SMALL CRIMES CAN HAVE TERRIBLE CONSEQUENCESWinter in Tiverton, and Constable Paul Hirschhausen has a snowdropper on his patch.
Someone is stealing women's underwear, and Hirsch knows how that kind of crime can escalate.
Then two calls come in: a child abandoned in a caravan, filthy and starving. And a man on the rampage at the primary school. Hirsch knows how things like that can escalate, too.
An absent father who isn't where he's supposed to be; another who flees to the back country armed with a rifle.
Families under pressure can break. But it's always a surprise when the killing starts. A hugely atmospheric police procedural set in the dust of the Australian outback.
Perfect for readers of Jane Harper, Chris Hammer and Dervla McTiernan. ________________________________________'Disher is the gold standard for rural noir' - CHRIS HAMMER'The Hirsch novels are Disher's finest work' - DOMINIC NOLAN'This is a book that cannot be praised enough.
