AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Private Investigator Cliff Hardy's 39th case sees him leaving the mean streets of Sydney for Newcastle, investigating what a famous 19th century shipwreck has to do with a multi-million dollar heist with a cast of characters that shouldn't be trusted.

This wasn't Hardy's usual brief--uncover the mysteries of a nineteenth-century shipwreck--but he could do with an easy case and the retainer was generous. But is it ever that simple? Not with a notorious crime family tearing itself apart, and an undercover cop playing both sides against the middle. These and an alluring but fiercely ambitious female journalist give Hardy all the trouble he can handle. 'Ever feel manipulated?' Hardy asks. The body count mounts up as he pushes closer to the truth about the mystery and the loot.' (Publisher's blurb)

Notes

  • Dedication: For Stephen Wallace
  • Epigraph:

    Gloomy cliffs so worn and wasted, with the

    washing of the waves,

    Are ye not like giant tombstones round

    those lonely ocean graves?

    - 'Drowned at Sea', by Henry Kendall (1839-1882)
