A gripping novel from one of Australia's finest crime writers. Detective Harry Doyle hoped that leaving Homicide would improve his family life, but it hasn't turned out that way. Things get worse when he is called to investigate two apparently unconnected murders, but there is a connection - Harry. The killer wants revenge, and Harry's family are the targets.

Review: The Sharp End

User Review  - Jenn - Goodreads

I had never read any books that centred around "trackers" before. The art of dog tracking was very clearly established in this thriller. The murders were nicely wrapped around the main character and even though I guessed who Max was I still enjoyed it fully. Read full review
