Publisher's Summary

Summer on the Peninsula. 

The heat’s ramping up, the usual holiday madness building. D.I. Hal Challis is already recycling his shower water and starting to dread Christmas. But this year there’s something more. Women abducted and murdered on the Old Highway. A pall of fear over the scorched paddocks. The media are demanding answers - and Challis’s sleepy beat is set to explode.

enjoyable

initially I hated the narration as it was too "striney" for me, annoyingly so. I did get used to it though and the story took hold of me. I particularly liked the development of the various characters and how the writing continually jumped from scene to scene with different players. it kept me interested as the pot boiled. the author is a very good writer and his description is detailed without being intrusive. I loved how he described two teens of limited cranial capacity as " mouthbreeders"! Very clever and instantly pictured.

One author to follow for me which is very rare as I generally dislike Australian authors for some reason. Definitely one to recommend.

So boring!

If you want a book that puts you to sleep this is the book for you. The narrator doesn't help at all
