    Corris spins a yarn with the best of them I can t add anything of consequence to what other reviewers have said This is a poignant story with a solid plot and some engaging characters, especially Hardy s ex wife s son If you have enjoyed this series so far, you will enjoy this one as well.

    THIS BOOK S OPENING chapters form a gut wrenching introduction to a relatively unwelcome expose to an aspect of life that we all have to face Hardy s ex wife makes contact out of the blue and all of the associated bitter memories and arguments rise to the surface of his conscience before he has the sense to agree to a meeting It turns out that Cynthia the former wife has terminal cancer, and with only weeks left to live, wants Hardy to track down the abandoned daughter he didn t know he had in time for Cyn to see her one time.Sad, huh Long term fans of the series as well as Hardy completionists will pick this book up and savour every word Newbies to the series may not be so enamoured of the greatest crime fighter this country has produced since The Phantom hit the shelves The book is entertaining, there s no denying that, but it struggles to lift itself from the quagmire of sadness and grief that was gifted to the reader at the start.The book is set in the years leading up to the Sydney Olympics and Hardy is soon hot on the trail of a suspected sighting of his daugh...

    Very typical of the Cliff Hardy series, easy to listen to and moves nicely About the only thing wrong, as with all books they become dated with the passing of the years Still I enjoyed the narrator and the plot This does carry an M rating for language as many of Peter Corris books probably should.

    A pretty strong one, after a flawed one.
