It's been "one of those months" - so I've returned to a favourite old series because I was looking for something engaging, quick and different.  Garry Disher's Wyatt is such a refreshing character - a thief, professional, ruthless, dangerous and absolutely captivating.  So PayDirt - originally published in 1992.

Even given the age, the lack of mobile telephones, gadgets and gizmos really isn't all that obvious - and boy did this gallop along.  Perfect.

From the Blurb:

Wyatt is back in a new adventure set on the far side of morality.  Introduced in Kickback, Garry Disher's bestselling, widely praised crime novel, Wyatt reappears in the South Australian outback, intent on snatching a payroll.  But Wyatt is not the only one eyeing the funds.

Opening Lines:

The work was dirty, the little town a joke, but Wyatt was interested only in the advantages - they didn't know who he was, there were no cops, and no one was expecting a payroll snatch.

Wyatt is back in a new adventure set on the far side of morality. Introduced in Kickback, Garry Disher's fast-selling, widely praised crime novel, Wyatt reappears in the South Australian outback, intent on snatching a payroll. But Wyatt is not the only one eyeing the funds. The Outfit has business with Wyatt. It will only be finished when he faces the hitman's gun. Garry Disher's highly controlled, fast-paced style brilliantly matches this tense, unnerving story of treachery and rough justice.
