Publisher's Summary

Charlie Jardim has just trashed his legal career in a spectacular courtroom meltdown, and his girlfriend has finally left him. So when a colleague slings him a prosecution brief for the remote coastal town of Dauphin, Charlie reluctantly agrees to go.

The case is murder. The victim was involved in illegal abalone trading and even more illegal drug trafficking. And the witnesses aren't talking. As Dauphin closes ranks around him, Charlie finds his interest in the law powerfully reignited.

Critic Reviews

"Shades of Jack Irish and a hint of Rake." ( Good Reading)
"Serong's prose is evocative, his dialogue convincing, and the atmosphere of small-town life pungently suggested." ( Canberra Times)

Love your work.

I am a true fan. Thank you for writing so honestly. I fell inlove with Charlie and Barry. Will probably listen to it again.

Worthy of the Ned Kelly Award

A great listen, very Australian and engrossing.
I read (Listened) to Quota fresh from reading The Rules of Backyard Cricket. I enjoyed both immensely.
Characters were well developed and authentic.
BUT: The opening is a little incorrect. If a Judge went on the way the Judge did in the book. It would be grounds for a miss trial.

Other than that Quota is a very enjoyable book, open to a sequel and I look forward to the next Jock Serong Book.
Simon Harvey is a good narrator and gave the book its authenticity.

UN able to put this one down!

Once you get over the intro of skippy euthanasia and graffic profanity this book is a winner. Honest natural narration. Electric story line and fast. Plausible.
Recommend this book for Rake lovers and yes there is a un expected laugh. Currently reading recommended.
