Constable Paul Hirschhausen—‘Hirsch’ to his friends, where he can find them—has been exiled to remote South Australia for failing to go along with his crooked colleagues.

But far from the city he finds older and deeper corruptions, from cosy understandings to harassment and bigotry. When shots are fired off Bitter Wash Road, in the shadow of the new wind turbines, Hirsch is set on a path that leads him through lonely deaths to terrible secrets, pitting him against enemies old and new—and the hardscrabble country itself.

Bitter Wash Road announces a new hero from award-winning writer Garry Disher, as striking and complicated as the land where he finds himself.

‘A terrific story ... easily one of the best Australian crime novels of the year.’ —Canberra Times
