‘Disher has been giving us highly intelligent literary thrillers for decades and he gets better and better.’ Australian
Shortlisted, Ned Kelly Awards, Best Crime Novel, 2018
The young detectives call Detective Alan Auhl a retread, but that doesn’t faze him. He’s always done things his own way and gets results—even if his cases are colder now. Like the skeleton discovered under a concrete slab. Or the old farmer, dead five years, whose death his daughters don’t believe was an accident. Or the doctor who’s murdered two wives and a girlfriend and left no evidence at all. Auhl will stick with these cases until justice is done. One way or another.
