The pandemic has found its way even to Tiverton—the remote South Australian town where Constable Paul Hirschhausen was finally getting the measure of the place—layering new divisions and disruptions on top of the old ones. The rich and the poor, the old and the new, authority and sovereignty, all playing out in a tiny population spread over a vast geography.

A Belgian doctor comes looking for her son, last seen working on an endless sheep station; and someone’s started a scrub fire out of town. The usual kind of thing for a country cop’s wide-ranging beat. But then there’s the body in the suitcase ...

Day’s End is the sequel to Bitter Wash Road, Peace and Consolation, rounding out an extraordinary sequence that stands at the pinnacle of rural noir.

‘Crime fiction at its best ... took this reader’s breath away.’—Canberra Times
