Fallout by Paul Thomas


Paul Thomas

Set against a background of Kiwi politics, this book effortlessly manages three convoluted plotlines, whilst introducing a great cast of characters led by Maori Det. Sergeant Tito Ihaka. Thoroughly recommended for all lovers of police noir, especially those who relish black humour.

'You could fill your cottages for a year with people who wish they'd never even thought about crossing me.'
'You say that with some pride.'
'Not proud of it, not ashamed of it; it's just the way it is. See, what I'm trying to do here is find out who murdered a seventeen-year-old girl who probably didn't do a bad thing in her life.'
