Having finished Still Waters by Camilla Noli last night I'm off for a palate freshner in this collection of Short Stories by Peter Corris. A great little collection in which Cliff takes the punches, doles out the retribution, untangles divorce affairs, tracks down tree poisoners and finds the killer of a local Glebe identity. Eleven stories in all - mid morning beers, crooked cops, and Sydney. Excellent so far.
In this brand new collection of short stories, Cliff Hardy has his hands full with murder, blackmail, embezzlement and more. True to form, Cliff doesn't waste words or pull punches as he untangles an ugly divorce, investigates the killing of a Glebe drinking buddy, and takes care of a nasty case of blackmail. The eleven tales are set in Cliff's Sydney, a place of thugs, mid-morning beers and crooked cops.
