Publisher Description

Peninsula Crimes, Book One


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.


'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

The Dragon Man

Excellent read. Thoroughly enjoyed this one. A hard to put down tale of abduction and murder laced with personal back stories of the police team working it against the glorious backdrop of a favourite Australian holiday destination. I will look for more books by this author.
