Meet Bill Murdoch, the world’s most reluctant private investigator…

Described as 'gritty', 'nuanced' and 'intelligent', this crime series set in Sydney and the Central Coast area of New South Wales, will appeal to fans of Jane Harper, Garry Disher, Peter Corris and Peter Temple.

This exclusive box set contains the first three books in the Bill Murdoch Mysteries series: HEADLAND, CLASS ACT, and BASE NATURE - three perfect pieces of modern Australian noir which will grab you and keep you guessing until the very last line.

HEADLAND (Book #1): Murdoch’s doing just fine, thanks for not asking. He’s dealing drugs for a professional crime syndicate in Sydney and saving for a house by the sea. But what does he think life is, a fairy tale?

As the syndicate puts pressure on him to fill the shoes of his murdered boss, Murdoch is cornered by an equally formidable foe: the Australian Tax Office demanding an explanation for his sizeable cash income.

Murdoch spins a beautiful lie, telling tax inspector, Hannah Simms, he’s a private detective. When Simms asks him to investigate the mystery of her niece's disappearance, Murdoch grabs what he thinks is a golden opportunity to outrun the syndicate. But his arrival in the missing girl's small coastal home town causes an unexpected stir and the reluctant PI soon realises his troubles are only just beginning.

CLASS ACT (Book #2): Can a man who's lived a life of crime ever escape his past? The world's most reluctant private investigator is about to find out...

Former bad boy turned local hero, Bill Murdoch, should be happy with his little piece of paradise. After all, he's got the fancy car and the big house by the beach. The only trouble is he's slowly suffocating in small town life.

So when Murdoch is hired to investigate who framed wealthy businessman, James Harte, for murder, he jumps at the chance. Going undercover amongst the jet set, Murdoch is quickly drawn into an exciting world of yachts, horse racing and glitzy parties. But soon Murdoch's shady past looks set to catch up with him and when he falls for Harte's beautiful wife, Amanda, things take a deadly turn.

(In July 2018, CLASS ACT was nominated for a Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Fiction - Australia's oldest and most prestigious crime writing prize)

BASE NATURE (Book #3): How far can you push a man before he reveals his base nature? Bill Murdoch is about to find out…

Murdoch takes on two cases in as many days. First he is hired to find local man, Scott Patterson, the victim of a mysterious abduction. Then an impressive stranger arrives in town with a tempting offer. But has Patterson really been abducted? And is the stranger all he appears to be?

As Murdoch gives in to temptation and risks everything by returning to his old criminal ways, the hunt for Scott Patterson takes an unexpected turn. Soon Murdoch and his partner, Davie Simms, are dragged into a depraved underworld of human trafficking, prostitution and torture, where they will find evil on their doorstep, and face a desperate fight for their lives.
