Imagine if Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct series was set in Australia and you’ll get a fair idea of Garry Disher’s series featuring Inspector Hal Challis. In Blood Moon (Soho Press, 978-1-56947-563-8), the latest entry which teams Challis with Sergeant Ellen Destry, Disher shows he’s every bit as good a writer as McBain’s alter ego, Evan Hunter. This is a MYSTERY FOR GROWN-UPS. The crimes at issue are compelling as much for what they reveal about the investigators as they do about the criminals.
