I have a brand-new interview with Garry Disher, the guy who gave us professional criminal Wyatt and the Hal Challis and Ellen Destry police procedural novels, live and available at Mystery Scene Magazine’s website. To whet your appetite, here are the first two paragraphs:
If you haven’t heard of Australian author Garry Disher, you’re not alone. While Disher’s two character-driven crime series set in Australia have dedicated readers from around the globe, the prolific writer remains sorely underappreciated in the United States.
Signal Loss, the seventh in Australian author Garry Disher’s series of character-driven procedurals featuring the taciturn and solitary Inspector Hal Challis makes its way to American shelves this December. The series has been called “excellent” by the New York Times Book Review and “moody, inventive, and extremely hard to put down,” by Booklist. The gritty cop novels set on Australia’s Mornington Peninsula have been compared favorably to other procedural series by Ian Rankin, Michael Connelly, and Peter Robinson.
