‘Shots fired on Bitter Wash Road…’

Hirsch is a whistle-blower. Formerly a promising metropolitan officer, now hated and despised. Exiled to a one-cop station in South Australia’s wheatbelt. Threats. Pistol cartridge in the mailbox.

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 the events that unfold turn out to be a lot more sinister.

Industry Reviews
'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 *
'Exceptional crime fiction.' * Courier-Mail *
'Disher is definitely not to be missed.' * Globe & Mail *
'Bitter Wash Road is superb.' * Weekend Australian *
'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 *
'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.' * Shotsmag *
'One of Australia's best-written crime fictions to date.' * Australian *
'Fast-paced, funny, and believable.' * Bookmunch *
