What happens when a drug dealer is forced to turn detective?
Meet Bill Murdoch, the world's most reluctant private investigator.

Murdoch's doing just ?ne, thanks for not asking. He's dealing drugs for a professional crime syndicate in Sydney and saving for a house by the sea. But what does he think life is, a fairy tale?

As the syndicate puts pressure on him to fill the shoes of his murdered boss, Murdoch is cornered by an equally formidable foe: the Australian Tax Of?ce demanding an explanation for his sizeable cash income.

Murdoch spins a beautiful lie, telling tax inspector, Hannah Simms, he's a private detective. When Simms asks him to investigate the mystery of her niece's disappearance, Murdoch grabs what he thinks is a golden opportunity to outrun the syndicate. But his arrival in the missing girl's small coastal home town causes an unexpected stir and the reluctant PI soon realises his troubles are only just beginning.

Headland is noir crime at its best, a thriller to keep you guessing until the very end.

Cant wait to read the next one!


One of those books where I feel like I'm devouring every word. Real page turner and so many laugh out loud moments, with twists and turns. I couldn't stop reading. I enjoyed this book so much, I bought more copies as gifts to my book worm friends. We're all enjoying it.



Headland delivers a page turning tale


Headland introduces a love-hate character Bill Murdoch who embarks on an improbable murder case set in eastern seaboard of Australia. Not only a great read but makes a good gift for all.

An excellent piece of Aussie crime fiction.


This is a great piece of Aussie crime fiction. The author does a fantastic job at conjuring up the small town coastal community where the protagonist ends up after going on the run to save his life. The characters are believable, the dialogue natural, and the pacing is smooth and keeps the pages turning. The crime that Murdoch sets out to solve has a few twists and turns and kept me guessing until the end. Headland is the first in a new series of Aussie 'crime noir' and I am really looking forward to the sequels.
