Praise for Kittyhawk Down
“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.”
The 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 Robinson or Ian Rankin] 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.”
—ALA Booklist

Praise for the Hal Challis Thrillers
“It’s a rare pleasure to sit down to a traditional detective story in which solid police work solves a crime . . . An excellent Australian series.”
—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

“Delightful . . . BUY IT!”
New York Magazine

“Colorful . . . Disher has literary talent and imagination.”
Chicago Tribune

“Garry Disher’s terrific, no-nonsense police procedurals set in rough-and-ready Australia remind me of Ed McBain’s gold-standard 87th Precinct books.”
Seattle Times

“Engrossing . . . Disher creates the kind of complex, edgy, principled yet flawed characters it’s a pleasure to worry about.”
Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“This series boasts careful, realistic casework, but there’s enough darkness and ambiguity to suit John Harvey fans and a kind of which-way-is-up sense of the police force that recalls early James Ellroy. Moody, inventive, and extremely hard to put down.”
