While he is investigating a spate of robberies in rural victoria the body of a young girl is discovered and Berlin's pursuit of her killer reveals that the war has changed even the most ordinary of people and places. 'A feisty, beautifully researched thriller . . . shot through with brilliant insights and great dialogue. The best new Aussie entrant in the crime stakes since Peter Temple.' The Mercury 'A bottler of a book . . . superbly crafted. A terrific book in all respects.' Weekly Times 'Charlie Berlin is a wonderfully flawed human being doing his duty, falling apart and picking himself back up again.' Austcrimefiction.org 'McGeachin's reconstruction of post-war Australia has an air of authenticity . . . there is a depth to the characters that is characteristic of the better modern detective fiction.'
