Product Description

Constable Paul Hirschhausen runs a one-cop station in the dry farming country south of the Flinders Ranges. He’s still new in town but the community work—welfare checks and working bees—is starting to pay off. Now Christmas is here and, apart from a grass fire, two boys stealing a ute and Brenda Flann entering the front bar of the pub without exiting her car, Hirsch’s life has been peaceful.

Until he’s called to a strange, vicious incident in Kitchener Street. And Sydney police ask him to look in on a family living outside town on a forgotten back road.

Suddenly, it doesn’t look like a season of goodwill at all.

Industry Reviews

'Disher is the gold standard for rural noir.' * Chris Hammer *
'There is no peace for a good man when the mercury rises, tempers fray and violence simmers. This is a scorchingly good novel.' * Michael Robotham *
`Peace tells the story of a cop exiled to a wounded town in South Australia's dry country. In this brilliant novel Disher takes his readers on a harrowing journey.' * Jock Serong *
'I loved Peace. It is an an uplifting book, an utterly compelling mystery with rare heart and humanity. If you enjoyed Jane Harper's The Lost Man, this novel is for you.' * Dervla McTiernan *
`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.' * Sydney Morning Herald *
`Mark Peace down as one to look out for, and if you have not already done so, give Bitter Wash Road a read, you won't be disappointed.' * Jeff Popple *
'The cast of Peace is strong and the local colour is as vivid as ever. Disher was portraying the harshness of the Australian landscape long before Jane Harper's The Dry ignited a new wave of Australian crime fiction, and fans of her work, and Chris Hammer's Scrublands, will find much to enjoy here. Disher provides the complete mystery package: unobtru-sively slick detection, plenty of surprises and mounting thrills, with a protagonist that demonstrates a remarkable level of humanity.' * Books+Publishing *
