From five-time winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Crime Fiction and author of the bestselling masterpiece The Broken Shore comes another electrifying thriller. Now available in trade paperback from Vintage Canada World of Crime.
At the close of a long day, Inspector Stephen Villani stands in the bathroom of a luxury apartment high above the city. In the glass bath, a young woman lies dead.
So begins Truth, the sequel to Peter Temple's highly acclaimed The Broken Shore, winner of the Duncan Lawrie Dagger Award.
Villani's job as head of the Victoria Police Homicide Squad is bathed in blood and sorrow. His life is his work. It is his identity, his calling, his touchstone. But now, over a few sweltering summer days, as fires burn across the state and his
superiors and colleagues scheme and jostle, he finds all the certainties of his life are crumbling.
Truth is about a man, a family, a city. It is about violence, murder, love, corruption, honour, deceit--and truth.
