Description

After the success of last year's Peace, Garry Disher's much-loved Hirsh is back in an unforgettable new thriller.

Winter in Tiverton.

Constable Paul Hirschhausen has a snowdropper on his patch. Someone is stealing women’s underwear, and Hirsch knows enough about that kind of crime—how it can escalate—not to take it lightly.

But the more immediate concerns are a call from the high school, a teacher worried about a student who may be in danger at home. Another call, a different school: a man enraged about the principal’s treatment of his daughter.

A little girl in harm’s way and an elderly woman in danger. An absent father who isn’t where he’s supposed to be; another who flees to the back country armed with a rifle. Families under pressure. And the cold, seeping feeling that something is very, very wrong.

"Disher is the gold standard for rural noir."—Chris Hammer

Advance Praise

PRAISE FOR GARRY DISHER AND PEACE

"There is no peace for a good man when the mercury rises, tempers fray and violence simmers. This is a scorchingly good novel."—Michael Robotham

"Peace tells the story of a cop exiled to a wounded town in South Australia’s dry country. In this brilliant novel Disher takes his readers on a harrowing journey."—Jock Serong


"I loved Peace. It is an an uplifting book, an utterly compelling mystery with rare heart and humanity. If you enjoyed Jane Harper’s The Lost Man, this novel is for you."—Dervla McTiernan


"Peter Temple and Garry Disher will be identified as the crime writers who redefined Australian crime fiction in terms of its form, content and style."—Sydney Morning Herald


"Mark Peace down as one to look out for, and if you have not already done so, give Bitter Wash Road a read, you won’t be disappointed."—Jeff Popple


"The cast of Peace is strong and the local colour is as vivid as ever. Disher was portraying the harshness of the Australian landscape long before Jane Harper’s The Dry ignited a new wave of Australian crime fiction, and fans of her work, and Chris Hammer’s Scrublands, will find much to enjoy here. Disher provides the complete mystery package: unobtru­sively slick detection, plenty of surprises and mounting thrills, with a protagonist that demonstrates a remarkable level of humanity."—Books+Publishing

"Disher is a master of crime and this has to be one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in a while."—Mark Rubbo, Readings
