For review at http://newtownreviewofbooks.com/

From the Blurb:

When Hirsch heads up Bitter Wash Road to investigate the gunfire he finds himself cut off without back-up. A pair of thrill killers has been targeting isolated farmhouses on lonely backroads, but Hirsch’s first thought is that ‘back-up’ is nearby—and about to put a bullet in him.

When Hirsch heads up Bitter Wash Road to investigate the gunfire he finds himself cut off without back-up. A pair of thrill killers has been targeting isolated farmhouses on lonely backroads, but Hirsch’s first thought is that ‘back-up’ is nearby—and about to put a bullet in him.

That’s because Hirsch is a whistleblower. Formerly a promising metropolitan officer, now demoted and exiled to a one-cop station in South Australia’s wheatbelt. Called a dog by his brother officers. Threats; pistol cartridge in the mailbox.

CR - If I Tell You.....

This is a seriously brilliant idea this book, one that I'm really pleased to see close to out and about.  (Dislaimer: I was recently invited to join ACWA's committee. A long time after this book was conceived and developed.)

From the Blurb:

Crime fiction is the single most popular genre in international publishing and Australia has some of the finest practitioners when it comes to walking the mean streets and nailing the bad guys.

Currently Reading - Hard Labour, The Crime Factory

Book Title: 

Never made any secret of my liking for short story collections, and the darker the better - which makes my dipping in and out of this little gem of a collection somewhat of a treat. Although I do think I should be smoking a cigarette, drinking straight scotch and sat somewhere dark and vaguely sinister...
