Overview

The final book in the critically acclaimed crime fiction series The Belltree Trilogy. Harry Belltree's obsessive pursuit of justice has cost him everything - his job in homicide, his marriage and his newborn child. He has nothing left to lose, or so he thinks. Then his estranged wife disappears, leaving their baby daughter behind. The police think Jenny has murdered a man. Harry thinks she's in danger. When severed limbs are found dangling from the branches of trees in a suburban park, Harry's former colleagues are pulled off Jenny's case. It's up to Harry to track his missing wife down on his own. And to lay bare, at last, the extraordinary conspiracy that led to his parents' murder.

`Once again, Maitland has thrown in everything you would want from an Australian crime novel, particularly one set in Sydney: greedy developers, corrupt police, compromised media, shonky politicians, bikies, illegal dog fighting and drugs. But also, in the ongoing mystery, issues of Aboriginal identity, and in particular the stolen generation, also get a look in. And Harry Belltree is the perfect guide to this world.' * Pile by the Bed * `At last, the third instalment of Barry Maitland's Belltree Trilogy, Slaughter Park. It's an impressive conclusion to an epic tale...Taken as a whole, these three crime novels constitute an extended commentary on some of the more pressing moral issues facing Australia. These include dealing with a reprehensible past and the ongoing impact of the stolen generation, as well as the obligation to defend a fragile environment from commercial exploitation.' * Age * `This is a ripper of a book...If you like crime fiction, then this is right up your mean street.' * Weekly Times *
