This raunchy page-turner features Shaun McCreadie, a young police detective who finds himself on the wrong side of the law and implicated in a brutal home invasion. When McCreadie is released from jail 11 years later he is determined to discover the nature of the crime that put him away. Armed with $2.8 million in ill-gotten gains and his police street smarts, McCreadie grapples with murderous former accomplices, corrupt old cop buddies, and the seductive wife of a prominent lawyer in his quest to find answers. His investigations reveal the nefarious activities of bent cops, drug dealing, framing, and murder. Elements of crime, justice, and illicit affairs combine to form an intricately plotted, tightly structured, intelligent, and sexy work of fiction.

Eleven years after Shaun McCreadie went to jail for his role in a robbery that turned deadly, he's out. And now the former police detective has a list of things he needs to do: collect the loot ($2.8 million), avoid getting killed by other people who want the loot, and find out why a simple heist went so disastrously wrong. McCreadie is one of those morally ambiguous characters you're not sure if you're supposed to like; in fact, the whole book seems to be constructed according to the same principle. It has a solid, suspenseful story, but the novel is so graphic, in terms of both violence and sexual content, that it seems designed to be off--putting. Its setting, Australia, is fresh (at least for American and Canadian readers), but its mood feels dirty, so much so that you may feel like stopping every once in a while and taking a shower. But make no mistake: the novel is absolutely mesmerizing, a triumph of hard-edged, so-atmospheric-you-can-feel-it storytelling. But definitely not for the cozy crowd. David Pitt
