Summary

Winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Novel.

Detective Inspector Daniel Clement is back in Broome, the tropical town where he grew up, licking his wounds from a busted marriage and struggling to be impressed by his new team of small-town, inexperienced cops. But stagnation and lethargy soon give way to a case with urgent purpose. On the edge of the desert, a man is found dead in a crocodile-infested watering hole. And he is only the first. The connection between the victims is elusive, but Clement must pursue it as a decades-old mystery begins to unravel and a monster cyclone brews on the horizon.

Great story, well read.

As a fan of all things WA I was pleased to discover the Dave Warner books, Ric Herbert did a good job as a narrator and I enjoyed this book as much as the first in the series.
