I reached gingerly to the back of my head and felt the blood in my hair and the tenderness underneath it. How do they check if a footballer's concussed? Ask him if knows what day it is. I thought I did. I was pretty sure.

An old flame, Glen Withers, has come back into Cliff Hardy's life - but this time it's strictly business.

Former policewoman Glen is now a PI too, and with

Salt and Blood is a typical mystery/murder with interwoven subplots only revealed at the last moments. It was good to have an Australian story to listen to again.

Having a story set in Australia and written by an Australian made it even more enjoyable. I will look for Cliff Hardy/Peter Corris titles (both audio and hard copy books) more often in book stores now the.

ugh - some bits are good, but this one is too destructive for me. not dark in a compelling way, for me.

I don't know how often you have to have the detective fail badly, destructively, in these series, to keep the reader from feeling we're reading the same script again and again. bit I don't think that's enough for me to go with an ending like this.

I am a Pollyanna in these matters, or whatever would be a more neutral term for that.

Another great Cliff Hardy story. I didn't like the issues with alcoholics - all a bit negative

The same as his other P.I. novels. I enjoy the glimpses of Sydney because I come from there myself, but somehow this story was not satisfying. The plot seems too improbable - and it's not as if I lost track of it. I read it in a few days.

Peter Corris’s first novel was published in 1980 and he has been a full time writer since 1982. Through the 1950s, 60s and 70s, the Australian crime story was in the hands of writers producing mass market pulp novelettes, chief among them being Alan Yates (Carter Brown).
