Publisher's Summary

Is Sydney gun city? It certainly seems so when Cliff Hardy is hired by entrepreneur and one-time pistol-shooting champion Timothy Greenhall to investigate the violent death of his troubled son. Soon Hardy is pitched into a world of crooked cops - former members of the Gun Control Unit - outlaw bikies and honest police trying to clean the stables quietly.

Two more murders raise the stakes, and relationships are stretched to the breaking point. Hardy hooks up with a determined policewoman and forms an unlikely alliance with a charismatic bikie chief.

Uncovering the tangled conspiracy behind the murders takes Hardy to the Blue Mountains and Camden, to plush legal chambers and a confrontation in an inner-west park - all against the roar of 750cc engines.

What the Critics Say

"One thing you can never accuse a Cliff Hardy novel of is padding! They are sparse, entertaining, tight little capsules of Cliff the Private Detective working the mean streets of Sydney, and have always been thus." (Australian Crime Fiction Database)

    Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    Story
    "Good yarn, well read by Hosking"

    Have to agree with the critic comment, tight story, no padding and well paced. Peter Hosking does bring the story to life. Neither the murder or sex is 'pornographic.'. It is there as is the traffic on the roads, the weather, how someone behaves and what defines an office in Martin Place.While the characters are well developed they too seem to rise out of verbal line drawings. Corris picks out details that do carry weight, and convey a cluster of other details not stated. The writing is crisp. Great listen.
