Book Description

Review 'Disher continues to show an impressive knack for planning capers that go like clockwork.' ?KirkusPraise for the Wyatt series 'Like an Australian Bob le Flambeur, Disher's titular robber is smooth, calm and planning a big heist.'?Entertainment Weekly ? ?There's real technique on show here.... it's so fast and hard-written that it becomes a blur, a flurry of activity that dazzles the senses.... Wyatt is a thrill-laden pleasure. I can't wait to read the others.??ABC Radio ? ??Outstanding.... The spare, economical prose perfectly suits this tale of mad love and crimes gone wrong, which will remind many of Westlake's better Parker novels.??Publishers Weekly, Starred Review?Endlessly cool, enormously competent.... a banquet for those who like it uncut and unsparing.??Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review ? ?Brilliant.... The similarities with another fictional thief?Richard Stark's antihero Parker?are many.??Seattle Times ? ?Disher takes us back to the golden age of thrillers, a time when they were fast, taut and dependably suspenseful.??Kirkus Reviews ? ?A satisfying read, with a suspenseful denouement... recommended.??Spinetingler MagazinePraise for Garry Disher'Colorful . . . .
