Description - Dead Cat Bounce by Peter Cotton
A federal election campaign is thrown into chaos when a popular government minister goes missing and then turns up dead on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin. With Detective Darren Glass on the case, the investigation into the minister's murder quickly becomes entangled in a game of high-stakes politics. All the while, the body count mounts. Glass's suspects include some of the most powerful people in the land, With the nation in shock and wanting answers fast, Glass has to negotiate a murky world of shifting allegiances, half-truths, and finger pointing, where everyone has a motive for murder. And no one is safe - not event he prime minister. As Election Day nears, Glass risks everything for a breakthrough in the case, and his life is soon hanging by a thread. But if he thought he'd hit rock bottom, he was wrong . . . 'An election is the background for kidnap, murder, and mayhem. In this nail-biter, Canberra's corridors of power become the mean streets of fiction.' Laurie Oakes 'Peter Cotton utilises his intimate knowledge of the works of government, office politics, Parliament House, and Canberra to build a fabulous murder mystery . . . The yarn has finesse and pace, and is a stunning first novel.' Paul Bongiorno
