    Garry Disher has been writing Aussie rural noir since before it was a thing and his books are fantastic. Like Jane Harper or Chris Hammer, the landscape, the climate, the distances all play a key part in his writing. His books are gripping and eventful and they grab you right from the ...

    It was bitterly cold as Constable Paul Hirschhausen did his usual rounds, checking on the outlying properties as he did on a regular basis. Tiverton was small, with not a lot of crime and he was the only cop for his area, until he reached the town of Reruth where there was a larger pol...

    ?Outback Noir? became a hot commodity thanks to the global success of Jane Harper (THE DRY), Chris Hammer (SCRUBLANDS), and the Mystery Road films and television drama. But long before any of them hit the crime scene, there was the brilliant storytelling of Garry Disher. A couple o...

    3 stars You can read all of my reviews at Nerd Girl Loves Books. This is an ok mystery set in Australia. The story moves slowly and there are irrelevant storylines that detract from the main mystery. This is the third book in the series, but it's a stand alone mystery so you...

    Oh wow, after reading the previous book, Peace, and then this one I am officially a Garry Disher fan. This book was so good, it had a lot of heart. I think that is what distinguishes Disher?s books from many others. In this story Sergeant Brandl has a badly broken leg so Hirsch (Cons...

    While Australian writers like Jane Harper and Chris Hammer seem to be getting all the attention internationally for their ?rural noir? scribblings, Disher for mine is head and shoulders above all. Whether it is his hard boiled Wyatt series or his Peninsula police procedurals or his...

    Snowdropper? What's that? Google it. The author does a good job describing the Australian Outback openness, emptiness, and loneliness. You must be a little off to live in a place so desolate. This is a ride along through the Outback with Tiverton?s only police officer Con...
