Product description

Review

Silver is the perfect sequel to Scrublands - dark, twisty and atmospheric, with writing so real you can almost feel the blistering heat of the Australian summer. I savoured every page, I didn't want it to end * Lisa Hall, author of Between You and Me * Compelling, original and brilliantly executed - an excellent thriller from a new master of Australian noir * Charles Cumming, author of A Foreign Country * Stunning ... Scrublands is that rare combination, a page-turner that stays long in the memory -- Sunday Times on 'Scrublands' Shimmers ... A tortured tale of blood and loss -- Val McDermid on 'Scrublands' --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC CRIME BUT SO MUCH MORE
Reviewed in Australia on 8 March 2022
So much more than a crime novel. It’s one of the best books I have read in years. What started out as a simple whodunnit turns into a story of mass Murder, drugs, extortion, blackmail and mysteries deeper than the Grand Canyon. The writing is gorgeous, deep, profound and lyrical. For a crime novel, the book is huge. To be honest, the story slowed down in its 2nd quarter but sped up again shortly after as the plot twists hit you. And the biggest mystery of all - the One you didn’t even know existed - is revealed right at the book’s end and it’s like watching Da Vinci finishing his Mona Lisa. This book is a masterwork not just of crime fiction but of literature in general. It’s world class. Australia can and should be proud of Chris Hammer. I know I am.
