Summary

Charlie Jardim has just trashed his legal career in a spectacular courtroom meltdown, and his girlfriend has finally left him. So when a colleague slings him a prosecution brief for the remote coastal town of Dauphin, Charlie reluctantly agrees to go.

The case is murder. The victim was involved in illegal abalone trading and even more illegal drug trafficking. And the witnesses aren't talking. As Dauphin closes ranks around him, Charlie finds his interest in the law powerfully reignited.

Critic reviews

"Shades of Jack Irish and a hint of Rake." ( Good Reading)
"Serong's prose is evocative, his dialogue convincing, and the atmosphere of small-town life pungently suggested." ( Canberra Times)

Excellent

Fantastic, twisting, characterful rural noir. Excellent narration. Ripping stuff from Jock Serong. Really enjoyed it
