As Bryan's daughter I'm probably a little bias. But I REALLY love this book. If you like crime books, (which funnily enough I rarely read), then this is a book for you. Also, if you like books with characters who draw you in and make you want to keep reading, this is a book for you. It's an easy read and perfect for those who are short on time, as these little spurts of crime are delivered in short stories. Perfect for a mum (like me) who finds it hard to read a whole book from front to back. The reviews have been been consistanly amazing. Five stars.
Taut and crackling with character, these gritty, raw and sometimes very funny stories from Australian great Bryan Brown are Aussie Noir at its best. Crime doesn't discriminate . . . it can happen to anyone . . . it could happen to you . . . in any ordinary suburb . . . at any time.
Bryan Brown has been telling stories with his distinctive Australian voice on TV and in film for a long time, but this time he's writing crime in his first book.
'Uniquely Australian and uncommonly good, I could hear the author's voice in every spare, haunting line. More please.' - Michael Robotham
'My friend Bryan Brown, quite apart from his other manifold talents, turns out to be an excellent writer. An authentic voice; highly imaginative yet completely believable, with a flair for fully realised characters and a gripping narrative … a great story teller. This is utterly baffling. I'm furious.' - Sam Neill
