Crime Fiction

Wyatt needs a job.

A bank job would be nice, or a security van hold-up. As long as he doesn’t have to work with cocky idiots and strung-out meth-heads like the Pepper brothers. That’s the sort of miscalculation that buys you the wrong kind of time.

So he contacts a man who in the past put him on the right kind of heist. And finds himself in Noosa, stealing a painting for Hannah Sten.

The job's a jewel heist, quick and simple.  Stake out the international courier, one Alain Le Page.  Hold up the goods in transit.  Get away clean.

Wyatt prefers to work alone but this one belongs to Eddie Oberin - his very smart ex-wife Lydia has inside information.  Wyatt has the planning genius and attention to detail.  So what could possibly go wrong?

Plenty, if Le Page has anything to do with it.  But when you cross Wyatt, you don't walk away.

Blurb from the book

Wyatt snatches the cash easily enough. He bypasses the alarm system, eludes the cops, makes it safely back to his bolthole in Hobart.

It's the diamond-studded Tiffany brooch - and perhaps the girl - that brings him undone. Now some very hard people want to put Wyatt and that brooch out of circulation. But this is Wyatt's game and Wyatt sets the rules - even if it means a reckoning somewhere far from home.

Blurb from the book

Wyatt is back in a new adventure set on the far side of morality. Introduced in Kickback, Garry Disher's fast-selling, widely praised crime novel,

Wyatt reappears in the South Australian outback, intent on snatching a payroll. But Wyatt is not the only one eyeing the funds. The Outfit has business with Wyatt. It will only be finished when he faces the hitman's gun.

Garry Disher's highly controlled, fast-paced style brilliantly matches this tense, unnerving story of treachery and rough justice.

Wyatt robs banks, and lifts payrolls. Most men like him are dead or in gaol. But Wyatt stamps a cold, pitiless style on his heists - and makes sure that he never gets caught.

Now his funds are low and his luck is running out - until the day Anna Reid explains about the kickback in her partners's safe. Other players are involved: Bauer - who learnt his trade shooting blacks in Southern Africa; Ivan Younger - small-time boss; Sugarfoot Younger - sullen urban cowboy.
