The Long Game is a tightly-wound crime thriller set in and around Melbourne, featuring Detective Sergeant Zoe Mayer and her unconventional partner with superior instincts – a service dog called Harry.
When a local surfer named Ray Carlson is found dead at the local beach with a silver-handled kitchen knife in his chest, DS Zoe Mayer is assigned the case. Scarcely back from extended leave, and still wrestling with her demons, she works the case in the blazing summer heat alongside Harry.
There’s an obvious suspect for the murder, and Zoe makes an arrest. But it’s all too neat, and none of Zoe’s colleagues believe her theory that the whole thing is a set-up… until they discover that someone wants Zoe and her theories out of the picture.
Superbly plotted, and vividly set in the beachside suburbs and hilly retreats around Melbourne, The Long Game is a mystery about a tough and clever investigator who won’t give up.
‘The Long Game is a nail-biting ride. Detective Sergeant Zoe Mayer and her service dog, Harry, kept me enthralled to the end.’—Greg Woodland, author of The Night Whistler
‘A sharply written, vividly set page-turner, inhabited by memorable characters, including Harry the loyal service dog.’—Tania Chandler, author of All That I Remember About Dean Cola
