Reviews for Consolation (#3 Paul Hirschhausen)

'Rural noir at its best.' * Canberra Times on Peace * 'Consolation is a very impressive piece of crime fiction. It holds attention, impresses with its depth and raises important issues, while being very entertaining. It once more confirms Disher's place as the master of outback noir.' * Murder, Mayhem and Long Dogs * 'One cracker of a book.' * Weekly Times on Peace * 'A novel of sweat-inducing authenticity.' * NZ Listener on Peace *
