Bitter Wash Road

When Hirsch heads up Bitter Wash Road in rural South Australia to investigate reports of gunfire, he finds himself cut off. A pair of thrill killers has been targeting farmhouses on lonely backroads, but Hirsch's first thought is maybe 'back-up' is nearby - and about to put a bullet in him. That's because Hirsch is a whistleblower. Formerly a promising officer, he has now been demoted and exiled to a one-cop station in South Australia's wheatbelt. The truth turns out to be a more mundane. And the events that then unfold are a hell of a lot more sinister.

Authors Bio, not available


'Exceptional crime fiction.' Courier-Mail 'Disher is definitely not to be missed.' Globe & Mail 'Bitter Wash Road is superb.' Weekend Australian '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...'Disher's eye for detail is acute and his poetic analogies precise...Bitter Wash Road continues the work of re-imagining the crime genre in a very Australian way, and does it beautifully.' Age/Sydney Morning Herald 'Not a word is wasted: here the ancient, bare, distinctive landscape of the hardscrabble country bordering Goyder's Line is conveyed with admirably atmospheric economy.' Adelaide Advertiser 'Smooth, assured mastery.' New York Times Book Review 'A top-class writer.' The Times 'Disher turns out to be a superb chronicler of macho pop culture.' Sunday Times 'An absolute corker of a crime novel and puts him up there with the likes of Michael Connelly, Ian Rankin and John Harvey...This is a superbly well-plotted thriller, beautifully written-especially the descriptions of the harsh outback-and with an intriguing hero, an honest cop faced with dishonesty at every turn.'
