ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- DI Dan Clement and his team are back in another solid mystery from Dave Warner. As with his earlier books in this series we get a strong picture of the way of life in Broome and surrounds. The flood of the title refers to a cataclysmic event wherein a dam near an overseas mining operation collapses, wiping out a nearby village with much loss of life (side note: in an eerie parallel, recent news featured Avon dam in NSW and the threat that planned coal mining operations might pose).

As the ramifications of the event become apparent, the story draws in themes of corporate responsibility and social protest as Clement heads up a baffling murder investigation. You don't have to have read earlier books from the series because each mystery stands well on its own. Thoroughly satisfying reading with lots of ruminations on life and its challenges along the way. Craig Kirchner
A thrilling new novel in the award-winning Dan Clement series.

A violent death by crucifixion near a remote north-west station has Detective Inspector Dan Clement and his Broome police officers disturbed and baffled. Other local incidents - the theft of explosives from a Halls Creek mine site, social justice protests at an abattoir, a break-in at a child-health care clinic - seem mundane by comparison. But as Clement starts to make troubling connections between each crime, he finds himself caught in a terrifying race. In a landmass larger than Western Europe, he must identify and protect an unknown target before it is blown to bits by an invisible enemy.
