Publisher's Summary

Summer on the Peninsula. 

The heat’s ramping up, the usual holiday madness building. D.I. Hal Challis is already recycling his shower water and starting to dread Christmas. But this year there’s something more. Women abducted and murdered on the Old Highway. A pall of fear over the scorched paddocks. The media are demanding answers - and Challis’s sleepy beat is set to explode.

So boring!

If you want a book that puts you to sleep this is the book for you. The narrator doesn't help at all

Great listen

I love Garry Disher’s books Unfortunately I don’t particularly like Colin Phillamy’s narration I think his voice is to formal and doesn’t fit with the characters in the novel

Good story but not loving this narrator

I’m sorry to say that I really did not enjoy listening to this narrator. His queen’s English was not the best choice for this Australian crime thriller. The story was good with lots of interesting characters but the narrator distracted me.

Horrible narrator, story is a soap opera

I very much enjoyed the other cop series from this author so was looking forward to this. The story is probably okay but the weird narrative style of the reader is a total turn-off.

enjoyable

initially I hated the narration as it was too "striney" for me, annoyingly so. I did get used to it though and the story took hold of me. I particularly liked the development of the various characters and how the writing continually jumped from scene to scene with different players. it kept me interested as the pot boiled. the author is a very good writer and his description is detailed without being intrusive. I loved how he described two teens of limited cranial capacity as " mouthbreeders"! Very clever and instantly pictured. One author to follow for me which is very rare as I generally dislike Australian authors for some reason. Definitely one to recommend.
