My Review

Peter Corris is pretty much known as the godfather of Australian crime fiction and given what seems to be an impressive output of novels in this series alone that is fairly easy to understand.  Along with Temple the two launched hard boiled American style crime novels into the land of Oz. 

Temple, is in my opinion, probably the better writer of the two.  Corris’s work has something of the James Patterson about him in that he turns out an large number of novels (but that is where the similarities end).

The novel as such is short but contains everything you would expect a hardboiled PI novel to contain.  It has corrupt cops and politicians, double dealings motives that aren’t as clear as they expect to be.

Its hard boiled fiction writing quickly and to a formula but it was a very enjoyable read.  If you like hardboiled fiction American style then you won’t go wrong with Corris.
