Praise for Garry Disher:

"[A] first-rate Australian author."-- The New York Times Book Review

"While many readers want their thrillers with gouts of gore and endless gunplay, for me, a writer like Disher--old-fashioned in the best sense of the term--is the most satisfying. The humanity that his officers bring to the story, their interactions, their doggedness and determination, are the real reasons to give his series a try."-- The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Delightful. . . . BUY IT!"-- New York Magazine

"Engrossing. Disher builds his books carefully, creating inexorable tension. . . . Reads you can't put down."-- St. Petersburg Times

"Disher has a slick, fast style that's delightfully free of filler and extraneous plotlines. Once the hook is set, he just lets the story pull you along."-- Globe & Mail (Toronto)

"[Disher] has packed this police procedural with the kind of detail that enthralls fans of the genre and with deftly sketched characters."-- Ft. Worth Star-Telegram

"Disher creates the kind of complex, edgy, principled yet flawed characters it's a pleasure to worry about."-- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Challis and his team investigate the brutal beating of the chaplain of a prestigious school and the murder of the woman in charge of punishing local land use violations. But will Hal Challis and Ellen Destry's new romantic relationship interfere with their work?

Garry Disher is the author of over forty books for adults and children. The previous mystery in the Inspector Hal Challis series, Chain of Evidence , won the Ned Kelly Award for best Australian crime novel.
