Reviews

'A police procedural ... featuring a squad of interestingly flawed homicide cops ... working multiple cases that feature multiple puzzles and a pool of incisively well-drawn murder suspects ... First rate.' New York Times Book Review'Gripping... As the story neatly advances from the viewpoints of characters both major and minor, Disher artfully employs misdirection... Fans of Peter Temple will find much to like in this dark whodunit.' Publishers Weekly'Procedural fans looking for something a little different will devour this one... Enough dark overtones to elevate the series into the Ian Rankin league.' Booklist'Challis is a fine creation: strong and resourceful, yet with enough human frailty to satisfy the tastes of readers raised on Connelly, Rankin or Patricia Cornwell. This is intelligent, well-crafted fare, enlivened by a sharp awareness of society and the dark undercurrents beneath it.' West Australian

The first Detective Inspector Challis murder mystery, 'The Dragon Man', won the German Crime Fiction Critics Prize 2002 and was published in the UK in 2006 by Bitter Lemon Press.
