When I heard about the premise of Inlet Boys I was immediately curious how a private detective story set in Australia would work. After all, this isn't America where gunfire is considered a form of greeting and government controls are to be viewed with suspicion until they're proved to make someone a lot of money. Australia has laws, protocols - and agencies by-and-large abide by them. As sound as that is in practice, what story could possibly take place in those bounds? What story that wouldn't

Cracking good read. PI Matt Kowalski is a likeable guy with some strangely endearing rough edges. Great story with a perfect balance of suspense, shock, hope and heart. Looking forward to the next instalment.
