A pair of hit men working a job for a meth kingpin have a very bad day, and the resulting bushfire draws attention to a drug lab and two bodies burned up in a Mercedes. Sergeant Ellen Destry-newly minted head of her department's sex crime unit-and Inspector Hal Challis return in this newest installment of Gary Disher's Peninsula-based crimes series. With meth-related crime on the rise, interdepartmental tensions mount, and Challis soon finds himself fighting to keep control of his case. Meanwhile, Destry is hunting for a serial rapist who is extremely adept at not leaving clues. A tense, human, at times darkly funny entry into Disher's celebrated, Ned Kelly Award-winning series.

"Colin McPhillamy narrates the seventh Inspector Challis police procedural. Two bodies in a burned car spark an investigation into a local drug ring in the Mornington Peninsula area of Australia, and a new sex crime unit tackles an increasingly elusive serial rapist. McPhillamy's steady delivery of the narrative contrasts wonderfully with the eclectic cast of lively characters whom he portrays with surprising variety in accent and inflection. The story itself tends to the dry side but reflects a realistic interaction between disparate police departments as they work together to achieve their goals. McPhillamy imbues dark and violent scenes with appropriate gravitas and amplifies the gallows humor perfectly. Despite its being the seventh book, new listeners will find the audiobook accessible.
