The Heat

Author(s): Garry Disher

Crime & Thriller

Text is offering readers a money-back guarantee they'll love The Heat. See back page for details. Wyatt needs a job. A bank job would be nice. Or a security van. But these days armed robbery means working with cocky young idiots or strung-out meth-heads - and Wyatt's not that desperate. Luckily, a broker in Queensland knows someone who wants a painting stolen. Which is how Wyatt finds himself in Noosa, casing a rich paedophile's house for entry points and escape routes. That's fine. It's what Wyatt does. The double-cross that's supposed to end with him getting killed? Less fine. The Heat is on.

'For the connoisseur of crime the Wyatt series represents Disher at his stylish best...wicked and wonderful. Welcome back, Wyatt.' Sydney Morning Herald 'Garry Disher has a well-earned reputation as one of Australia's top crime novelists, and in Bitter Wash Road he is at the top of his game. His style is sparse but evocative, writing richly observed characters and locations, and a tightly paced plot.' Illawarra Mercury 'Disher's terse, spare prose never falters.' Weekend Press 'Peter Temple and Garry Disher will be identified as the crime writers who redefined Australian crime fiction in terms of its form, content and style.' Age/Sydney Morning Herald 'Garry Disher is one of Australia's most exceptional crime writers...One of the most delightful aspects of a Garry Disher novel is the fascinating array of characters he assembles...The spare and sparse language, particularly in the way Disher frames the landscape, makes lines leap from the page.' 4 and a half starred review Good Reading 'Writing of the highest calibre, neatly crafted and strongly evocative.' Sunday Mail
