Wyatt Series

Garry Disher

  • awardShortlisted, Ned Kelly Awards, Best Crime, 2019
  • The latest gripping story in the popular Wyatt thriller series kicks off in Sydney and then unfolds on the beaches of Newcastle

    Some people just work better alone. Wyatt’s one of them. He’s been getting by on nice quiet little burglaries—one-man jobs—when he gets wind of something bigger.

    A corporate crook, notorious Ponzi schemer, set to face court and certain jail time. He’s about to skip bail the old-fashioned way: on a luxury yacht with a million dollars in cash.

    Wyatt thinks it sounds like something he should get into.

    He’s not alone.
