Garry Disher is not just a great writer of crime fiction, he's a great writer full stop.
A winner of the Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award, Gary joins Sydney’s Better Read Than Dead to discuss his latest masterful novel Peace with a special guest to be announced soon.
Peace tells the story of Constable Paul Hirschhausen who runs a one-cop station in the dry farming country south of the Flinders Ranges. 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.
