It is Melbourne 1989. While investigating organised crime, Peter Clancy is caught up in a sinister plot involving drug importation, police corruption, and some very kinky sex.
Along the way, Peter meets a young lawyer and is instantly besotted with her—unlike his friends and colleagues who see something disturbing beneath her wholesome exterior.
Enter the world of the thorny devils—where nothing is as it seems. Thornydevils heralds the much anticipated return of hard-living Melbourne Truth journalist, Peter Clancy.
“Peter Clancy is an amalgam of characters from crime fiction and film noir—a world-weary type” - Sydney Telegraph.
“Very definitely earning a place in the genre of murder-mystery writing” - Blue Wolf Reviews.
