Constable Paul Hirschhausen runs a one-cop station in the dry farming country south of the Flinders Ranges. He's still new in town but the community work-welfare checks and working bees-is starting to pay off. Now Christmas is here and, apart from a grass fire, two boys stealing a ute and Brenda Flann entering the front bar of the pub without exiting her car, Hirsch's life has been peaceful.

Until he's called to a strange, vicious incident in Kitchener Street. And Sydney police ask him to look in on a family living outside town on a forgotten back road.

Suddenly, it doesn't look like a season of goodwill at all.

Reviews for Peace

`Mark Peace down as one to look out for, and if you have not already done so, give Bitter Wash Road a read, you won't be disappointed.' * Jeff Popple * `Peter Temple and Garry Disher will be identified as the crime writers who redefined Australian crime fiction in terms of its form, content and style.' * Sydney Morning Herald * 'I loved Peace. It is an an uplifting book, an utterly compelling mystery with rare heart and humanity. If you enjoyed Jane Harper's The Lost Man, this novel is for you.' * Dervla McTiernan * `Peace tells the story of a cop exiled to a wounded town in South Australia's dry country. In this brilliant novel Disher takes his readers on a harrowing journey.' * Jock Serong * 'There is no peace for a good man when the mercury rises, tempers fray and violence simmers. This is a scorchingly good novel.' * Michael Robotham * 'Disher is the gold standard for rural noir.' * Chris Hammer *
