ABBEY’S BOOKSELLER PICK —— Disher’s Peninsula Crimes series are solid police procedurals that bring in topics of the day - in this case, it is the terrifying effect that the drug ‘ice’ has on users and their families, and depicts the network of soulless ‘business’ people that lie behind it - even in rural regions like Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Disher has a deft touch for the tone of the emotional lives of his police characters. Craig Kirchner


The seventh instalment in Garry Disher's celebrated Peninsula Crimes series sets up new challenges, both professional and personal, for Challis and his partner Ellen Destry.

Inspector Hal Challis's inquiries into a local ice epidemic take a darker turn when a bushfire forces ice cooks to abandon their lab and bodies found in a burnt-out Mercedes prove to be a pair of Sydney hitmen.

Meanwhile, Ellen Destry, head of the new sex crimes unit, finds herself not only juggling the personalities of her team but hunting a serial rapist who leaves no evidence behind.

Disher delivers with all the suspense and human complexity for which readers love him. He has won numerous awards, including the German Crime Prize (twice) and two Ned Kelly Best Crime novel awards, for Chain of Evidence (2007) and Wyatt (2010). Garry lives on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.
