Cliff Hardy has his hands full with murder, blackmail, embezzlement and more in this new collection of short stories.

'The godfather of Australian crime fiction.'

In this brand new collection of short stories, Cliff Hardy has his hands full with murder, blackmail, embezzlement and more. True to form, Cliff doesn't waste words or pull punches as he untangles an ugly divorce, investigates the killing of a Glebe drinking buddy, and takes care of a nasty case of blackmail. The eleven tales are set in Cliff's Sydney, a place of thugs, mid-morning beers and crooked cops.

'Until you've read the Cliff Hardy series, you can't call yourself an aficionado of Aussie detective fiction.' - The Age

'Corris writes about [Sydney] in the way that Ian Rankin writes about Edinburgh.' - The Sydney Morning Herald
