Summary

Homicide detective Harry Belltree wouldn’t usually be looking too hard at an elderly couple’s suicide pact. Especially now, when his brother-in-law, Greg, has just been stabbed to death. But it seems Greg and the old couple had ties to the same man, a bent moneylender with friends in high places - and low.
Harry can’t get officially involved in Greg’s murder, but he suspects a link with two other mysterious deaths: his parents'. And when he goes off grid to investigate, that’s when things start to get dangerous.
Set in Sydney, this dark, morally ambiguous and adrenaline-charged new series is a triumphant change of direction for Barry Maitland.
Shortlisted for the 2015 Ned Kelly Award for Best Fiction.

Red herrings and an uneasy hero

This is a departure for Barry Maitland. Set in Australia, the novel follows a flawed policeman, the son of a famous judge. His wife is blind following an accident in which both his parents died. A series of disturbing events lead what appears to be a relatively ordinary murder into much more complicated territory. I was shocked in a few places by the graphic descriptions and would have called it a day but I was already too gripped. Highly recommended.
