Written by one of Australia's finest crime writers, Kittyhawk Down is the second and much anticipated Inspector Challis murder mystery. Like The Dragon Man, which won the German Crime Fiction Critics Award 2001 and was short-listed for the Ned Kelly Award, it is loaded with suspense, action and intrigue. An unidentified man is fished out of the sea with an anchor wrapped around his waist. And for Detective Inspector Hal Challis, this sparks the beginning of a mysterious series of deaths and strange events.As Challis investigates, an unstable farmer erupts into violence and is the target of a massive manhunt. Meanwhile, Challis's emotional life is edgy and, adding further complications to his life, some of his police colleagues have allowed their private and public responsibilities to blur in ways that could cause big trouble. Things are chaotic enough, but then Challis finds some aerial photographs in the possession of his friend, Kitty, that link her to the shotgun killings. 'Kittyhawk Down' is Garry Disher's second crime novel in the Detective Inspector Challis series, following the internationally renowned crime novel, 'The Dragon Man', winner of the German Crime Fiction Critics Award 2001 and shortlisted for the Ned Kelly Award. Praise for The Dragon Man'unquestionably his masterpiece. An astonishingly told caper that's tough, tender and poignant and totally captivating.' The Age
