Gun Control by Peter Corris Gun Control, Paperback (March 2015)

Is Sydney gun city? It certainly seems so when Cliff Hardy is hired by entrepreneur and one - time pistol - shooting champion Timothy Greenhall to investigate the violent death of his troubled son. Soon Hardy is pitched into a world of crooked cops - former members of the Gun Control Unit - outlaw bikies and honest police trying to quietly clean...

Beware of the Dog by Peter Corris Beware of the Dog, Paperback (December 2014)

Cliff Hardy always finds it hard to turn down a job, but in the case of Paula Wilberforce he should have followed his instincts. Against his better judgement, he becomes involved in a wealthy family's disputes, where old rivalries and hatreds come to the surface and murder is the result.

Lugarno by Peter Corris Lugarno, Paperback (December 2014)

Although the meaner streets of inner Sydney are his traditional stamping grounds, Cliff Hardy finds that crime can flourish in the leafy, well-heeled outer suburbs as well.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Veteran shamus Cliff Hardy (O'Fear, 1991, etc.) stars in a so-so hard-boiled dish from Australia. Dr. Elizabeth Farmer, Professor of Linguistics at Sydney University, is distressed over the mystery surrounding the death of her father, though she seems to be alone in thinking it a mystery. Frederick Farmer's house-"his weekender at Wombarra in the Illawarra"-had been destroyed by fire along with it, but the authorities find his death eminently predictable. The house was old and wooden and Farmer a man who liked his drink at night and slept heavily. Dr. Farmer understands the skepticism, she tells Hardy, but the local cops don't really know her evil stepmother and the devious means she's ready to employ to gain her greedy ends. Once Hardy's hired on, he soon confronts a second case involving another unhappy woman. Marisha Karatsky's 15-year-old daughter has gone missing under circumstances harrowing enough to fret any mother. Can Hardy be prevailed upon to help? The question is rhetorical, since exotic Marisha asks it as her firm breasts are already prevailing on him. Launching his double investigation, Hardy suffers the beatings obligatory even below the Tropic of Capricorn before rescuing his damsel-clients, sort of. The Down Under sleuth goes up over average, though not by much. (Kirkus Reviews)
