Publisher's Summary

Detective Alan Auhl does things his own way - and gets results. He works cold cases now. Like the death of John Elphick - his daughters are still convinced he was murdered, the coroner not so sure. Or the skeleton that’s just been found under a concrete slab. Or the doctor who killed two wives and a girlfriend and left no evidence at all....

Dissapointing

Narrator was terrible. Toneless and boring not Garry Dishers best story . I really struggled to get into it but was glad to finish.

Another masterful book

Garry Disher needs to write faster - I'm running out of titles to dive into.
This is a terrific character, a former homicide detective brought out of retirement to work some
cold cases and finds himself caught up in a couple that are still quite hot.
The narrator does a great job with the characters..not so brilliant with the narration itself but fine.
However doesn't a writer as brilliant as Garry Disher deserve someone who knows how to pronounce the
location titles? Please engage a Victorian to narrate his books...it's grating to hear (for example) Moe pronounced as one of the Three Stooges instead of as in Cooee. Sounds picky but its distracting. Anyway, like all the Disher books this leaves me desperately wanting more.

Good characters but overall story didn’t hold together

Too many moving parts: The various story lines were interesting & some of the characters were compelling...but pacing was clearly off, & nothing really developed with the depth to make it a cohesive novel.

Good story

Good story plenty of different aspects to it. Just slightly spoilt by the performance delivery.
