    A crime drama set in Sydney is always attractive to me and this ticked many of the boxes for a great read The characters were well written and believable, and the narrative moved along with increasing tension Add a twist ending that I still almost can t believe, this is a book that will stay with you.


  5. Robin Robin says:

    Because of its glowing reviews, I was expecting something different and original from this book, but to me it just read like another police procedural The protagonist, detective Dimitri Telegonus, didn t seem quite real to me so I found it hard to have any empathy with him, although the other characters were well drawn, particularly the dinosaur detective Gale Ryan The story was engrossing and kept me interested, and the noir ending, though unexpected, was realistic.


  6. Ann Tonks Ann Tonks says:

    What made this book both interesting and depressing is that there is no answer to the mystery of the missing girl There is always corruption There is always prostitution There are always good cops and bad cops And there are always dead girls.


  7. Ann Ann says:

    Gripping story with great interaction between the two detectives.


  8. Shane Emmons Shane Emmons says:

    Quite a good read but left you hanging forin the end.


  9. Susan Howard Susan Howard says:

    Brilliantly written Great characters and Sydney and Tasmanian settings realistically described Thoroughly enjoyed humour and would highly recommend.
