This is the first Cliff Hardy yarn I've read since my late teens/early twenties. The first time I went on an adventure with the private detective I was not long out of school and living in Sydney and it was the first time I'd read a book where the landscapes, streets and points of interest were all local. I clearly remember Cliff pelting down Anzac Parade trying to lose someone following him, and in my mind I was urging him to turn into High Street (where I lived in 84)... and he did. There's ...more

One of the better Cliff Hardy outings. The plot zips along and Hardy is his usual hard-boiled self. He has two situations to untangle, both reasonably interesting. While crucial details are revealed only in the end, I did still guess how it would play out for the most part. Not among the very best of Corris' series, but an enjoyable read.

Another Cliff Hardy novel set in an around Sydney. Again it's nice to read a novel set in Australia, in locations I have visited or am familiar with. It is a light read about Hardy and his Private Investigation business. Not a heavy read but enjoyable.

I like these books, he's a hard case, the stories are great puzzles, he pokes fun at himself, and they're written with imagination.
