Product Description
Wyatt’s been away. Now he’s back.

Garry Disher’s cool, enigmatic anti-hero has been, uncharacteristically, out of action for a while. Now there’s a new Wyatt—and his legion of fans will not be disappointed.

The job’s a jewel heist. The kind Wyatt likes. Nothing extravagant, nothing greedy. Stake out the international courier, one Alain Le Page, hold up the goods in transit and get away fast.

Wyatt prefers to work alone, but this is Eddie Oberin’s job. Eddie’s very smart ex-wife Lydia has the inside information. Add Wyatt’s planning genius and meticulous preparation, and what could possibly go wrong?

Plenty. And when you wrong Wyatt, you don’t get to just walk away.

Taut plots, brilliant writing and relentless pace; plus an unforgettable cast, including the ever-elusive Wyatt himself: these are the hallmarks of Garry Disher’s Wyatt series.

Praise for Wyatt:

‘Wyatt is so compelling it simply has to be read in one sitting.’

— Graeme Blundell, Australian

‘For the connoisseur of crime the Wyatt series represents Disher at his stylish best…Disher has also refined his pared-back style over the years while maintaining a centrality of vision…Wyatt is wicked and wonderful. Welcome back, Wyatt.’

— Sydney Morning Herald

‘Thoroughly enjoyable and intensely exciting…sure to be one of the standout Australian crime novels of 2010.’

— Canberra Times

‘A cleansing breath in contemporary crime fiction…The way Disher draws Wyatt to be completely free of emotion—but so tantalisingly afraid of it—suggests the cliche ’‘still waters run deep’‘. It’s fascinating how so few words can draw a man so completely.’

— Courier Mail

‘I liked Wyatt’s moves but also his patience, and there are several good moments when he’s just waiting for things to happen, watching and observing like a Zen master. Still more important than his single-mindedness or his patience is Wyatt’s luck—he escapes quite a few tight spots by the skin of his teeth (and the deftness of Disher’s pen)…The strands of Wyatt come together with admirable economy…I hope we don’t have to wait another decade for the next instalment in the series.’

— Age
