The Broken Shore | [Peter Temple]

The Broken Shore

Joe Cashin was different once. He moved easily then; was surer and less thoughtful. But there are consequences when you’ve come so close to dying. For Cashin, they included a posting away from the world of Homicide to the quiet place on the coast where he grew up. Now all he has to do is play the country cop and walk the dogs. And sometimes think about how he was before. But then prominent local Charles Bourgoyne is bashed and left for dead....

Publisher's Summary

Joe Cashin was different once. He moved easily then; was surer and less thoughtful. But there are consequences when you’ve come so close to dying. For Cashin, they included a posting away from the world of Homicide to the quiet place on the coast where he grew up. Now all he has to do is play the country cop and walk the dogs. And sometimes think about how he was before.

Then prominent local Charles Bourgoyne is bashed and left for dead. Everything seems to point to three boys from the nearby Aboriginal community; everyone seems to want it to. But Cashin is unconvinced. And as tragedy unfolds relentlessly into tragedy, he finds himself holding onto something that might be better let go....

    "Not sure about this."

    I did like the story and thought it was well written, but the prejudice sort of got to me. I'm not sure if I recommend it, but it wasn't a waste of money or time.

    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
    "A good listen to a good yarn."

    Peter Temple does it again. Peter Hosking narrates well.
    Listen to the preview.
    Subject matter is of the creepy kind. Sort of a 'blokes' story that women also like. Good to listen to on a winter's night or while sun baking. .Just a good listen to a good yarn.

    "broken shore"
    Where does The Broken Shore rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    it was good lot of twists and turns good storyline


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes it keeps you guessing about where its going


    Have you listened to any of Peter Hosking’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    peter hoskings performances are good i have had several books read by him the arthur upfield series for one very interresting reader


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    it makes you want to listen to more of the same characters in further storys like the jack irish ones

    "Poor Story Teller"

    Probably a good book but the actor who read this is plane awful - every character is virtually the same - it's probably the australian spoken word - just does not work
