A modern western set in an isolated Australian bush town with a soaring crime rate, where a local constable with a troubled past must investigate the death of a teenage girl whose murder threatens to set the dusty streets ablaze. Constable Paul Hirschhausen—“Hirsch”—is a recently demoted detective sent from Adelaide, Australia’s southernmost booming metropolis, to Tiverton, a one-road town in the country three hours north. Hirsch isn’t just a disgraced cop; the internal investigations bureau is still trying to convict him of something, even if it means planting evidence. When someone leaves a pistol cartridge in his mailbox, Hirsch suspects that his career isn’t the only thing on the line. But Tiverton has more crime than one cop can handle, due largely to the town’s stagnant economy, rural isolation, and entrenched racism and misogyny. When the body of a 16-year-old local girl is found on the side of the highway, the situation in Tiverton gets even more sinister, and whether or not Hirsch finds her killer, there’s going to be hell to pay.

Since Alan Auhl came out of retirement the young detectives call him a retread. Some days he feels like one. Cheaply slapped together. Just about guaranteed to wear down quickly. But he does things his own way and gets results—even if his cases are a bit colder now. Like the skeleton that’s just been found under a concrete slab. Or the old farmer, dead five years, whose daughters still don’t believe it was an accident. Or the doctor who’s murdered two wives and a girlfriend and left no evidence at all. Auhl will stick with these cases until justice is done. One way or another. Garry Disher has published fifty titles—fiction, children’s books, anthologies, textbooks, the Wyatt thrillers and the Peninsula Crimes series. His previous standalone novel, Bitter Wash Road, won the German Crime Prize in 2016. ‘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.’ Age ‘A top-class writer.’ Times ‘Garry Disher deserves his reputation as one of Australia’s finest crime writers.’ Stuff NZ ‘Disher is a master of concise writing, concise but not spare...A good solid page-turner.’ Otago Daily Times ‘Well-crafted and leanly written, this tense novel grips from beginning to end.’ Canberra Weekly ‘The reader is taken on a breathtaking ride...[Disher’s] characters, vivid prose and settings are wonderful.’ ReadPlus ‘Victorian crime fiction king Garry Disher is a literary machine...Bring on the next case.’ Herald Sun ‘One of the most engaging aspects of Disher’s writing is the way he evokes a sense of place, and Melbourne and its surrounds are just as much a part of the story as any of the characters. He is also a master of intrigue; his characters often walk a fine line between what is considered inside and outside the law—and Alan Auhl is no exception.’ Good Reading ‘There are many twists to a tale that opens with one of those closely observed vignettes of outer suburban life that Disher does so well...It’s a riveting opening scene, setting in motion just one of the cases with which the amiable Auhl will deal in the most cathartic of ways.’ Age

Wyatt needs a job. A bank job would be nice. Or a security van. But these days armed robbery means working with cocky young idiots or strung-out meth-heads—and Wyatt’s not that desperate. Luckily, a broker in Queensland knows someone who wants a painting stolen. Which is how Wyatt finds himself in Noosa, casing a rich paedophile’s house for entry points and escape routes. That’s fine. It’s what Wyatt does. The double-cross that’s supposed to end with him getting killed? Less fine. The heat is on. Garry Disher has published almost fifty titles—fiction, children's books, anthologies, textbooks, the Wyatt thrillers and the Mornington Peninsula mysteries. 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. Praise for Garry Disher ‘For the connoisseur of crime the Wyatt series represents Disher at his stylish best...wicked and wonderful. Welcome back, Wyatt.’ Sydney Morning Herald ‘With The Heat, Disher continues to tap into that need that we have for anti-heroes...Couple that with a twisted, tense and taut thriller and once again, Garry Disher has turned out a winner.’ Aust Crime Fiction ‘Disher’s terse, spare prose never falters.’ Weekend Press ‘Garry Disher is one of Australia’s most exceptional crime writers...One of the most delightful aspects of a Garry Disher novel is the fascinating array of characters he assembles...The spare and sparse language, particularly in the way Disher frames the landscape, makes lines leap from the page.’ 4.5-starred review, Good Reading ‘Writing of the highest calibre, neatly crafted and strongly evocative.’ Sunday Mail ‘The Heat is beautifully crafted. Like its hero, it's lean, spare and trenchant...Disher provides a searing commentary on the way we choose to live now.’ Age/Sydney Morning Herald ‘Sparely written, with an entertaining set of villains, an unfathomable antihero and dry humour, reading this book is like riding a thrilling switchback.’ West Australian ‘Garry Disher deserves his reputation as one of Australia’s finest crime writers.’ Stuff NZ ‘Disher’s Wyatt, perfectly crafted in gripping, calculated prose, is someone you’ll happily follow into heists, thefts, and stopping their own murder.’ Readings ‘Every word counts in Disher’s books, but you’re never left with a sense that the writing is too sparse. The sentences are vividly alive. I read the book in a day, which shows what a page-turner it is.’ Otago Daily Times ‘The fast-moving spellbinding plot keeps the reader turning the pages and makes it hard to put the book down and return to real life.’ ArtsHub ‘This latest installment of Australia’s favourite crook is fast-paced and action-packed...Readers unfamiliar with Disher’s work are bound to want to seek out his backlist; fans of his Wyatt series will not be disappointed...A brilliant read!’ BookMooch

Australian and New Zealand crime and thriller writing - collectively referred to as Southern Cross Crime - is booming globally, with antipodean authors regularly featuring on awards and bestseller lists, such as Eleanor Catton's Booker Prize winning The Luminaries and Jane Harper's big commercial hit, The Dry, winner of the CWA Gold Dagger Award. Hailing from two sparsely populated nations on the far edge of the former Empire - neighbours that are siblings in spirit, vastly different in landscape - Australian and New Zealand crime writers offer readers a blend of exotic and familiar, seasoned by distinctive senses of place, outlook, and humour, and roots that trace to the earliest days of our genre. Southern Cross Crime is the first comprehensive guide to modern crime writing from "Down Under". From coastal cities to the outback, leading critic Craig Sisterson showcases key titles from over 250 storytellers, plus screen dramas ranging from Mystery Road to Top of the Lake. Fascinating insights are added through in-depth interviews with some of the prime suspects who paved the way or instigated the global boom, including Michael Robotham, Paul Cleave, Emma Viskic, Paul Thomas, Candice Fox, and Garry Disher. 'Southern Cross Crime is informative, knowledgeable, wide ranging. If you have any ideas about writing a crime novel you need to read it, if you enjoy reading crime novels, you need to read it, if you simply love reading, you need to read it. This is not a dry as dust tome - the writer's encyclopaedic knowledge is carried lightly... a box of the finest literary chocolates' - Renée Taylor, 2018 recipient of the Prime Minister's Award for Literary Achievement in Fiction 'A valuable and illuminative resource for crime fiction fans everywhere' - Book'd Out

A modern western set in an isolated Australian bush town with a soaring crime rate, where a local constable with a troubled past must investigate the death of a teenage girl whose murder threatens to set the dusty streets ablaze. Constable Paul Hirschhausen—”Hirsch”—is a recently demoted detective sent from Adelaide, Australia’s southernmost booming metropolis, to Tiverton, a one-road town in rustic, backwater “wool and wheat” country three hours north. Hirsch isn’t just a disgraced cop; the internal investigations bureau is still trying to convict him of something, even if it means planting evidence. When someone leaves a pistol cartridge in his mailbox, Hirsch suspects that his career isn't the only thing on the line. But the tiny town of Tiverton has more crime than one lone cop should have to handle. The stagnant economy, rural isolation, and entrenched racism and misogyny mean every case Hirsch investigates is a new basket of snakes. When the body of a 16-year-old local girl is found on the side of the highway, the situation in Tiverton gets even more sinister, and whether or not he finds her killer, there’s going to be hell to pay. Paperback edition found under the title Bitter Wash Road. From the Hardcover edition.

'Disher shows that he is a top-class writer' - THE TIMES 'Vivid and visceral, combined with Disher's usual deft plotting' - GUARDIAN 'One of Australia's most admired novelists' - SUNDAY TIMES ________________________________________ ONE DEAD-END POSTING. ONE DEAD BODY. A TRAGIC ACCIDENT? THAT'S WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO THINK... Constable Paul 'Hirsch' Hirschhausen is a whistle-blower. Formerly a promising metropolitan detective, now hated and despised, he's been exiled to a one-cop station in South Australia's wheatbelt. So when he heads up Bitter Wash Road to investigate gunfire and finds himself cut off without backup, there are two possibilities. Either he's found the fugitive killers thought to be in the area. Or his 'backup' is about to put a bullet in him. He's wrong on both counts. But Tiverton - with its stagnant economy, entrenched racism and rural isolation - has more crime than one constable can handle. And when the next call-out takes him to the body of a sixteen-year-old girl, it's clear that whether or not Hirsch finds her killer, his past may well catch up with him. Winner of the German Crime Prize, this new novel from Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award-winner Garry Disher is perfect for readers of Jane Harper, Chris Hammer and Dervla McTiernan. ________________________________________ 'This novel is superb, and Disher deserves fame over here' - THE SUN 'Terrific stuff, utterly gripping' SAGA 'Peace will have you longing for a sequel' SEATTLE TIMES 'Disher at his brilliant best' - WEEKEND HERALD 'A tasty slice of Aussie noir' - SHOTS
