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....

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.
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.
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
