'Disher is one of this country's finest writers.'

* Tony Birch *

'Disher is the gold standard for rural noir.'

* Chris Hammer *

'A giant not only of crime fiction but of Australian letters.'

* Ned Kelly Awards *
'A new crime novel from the prolific old master is always a treat, and this one is no different. The past intrudes into the present as Charlie Deravin, banished from his job in the police sex-crimes unit, still puzzles over his mother's disappearance 20 years earlier that had his father fingered as a possible murderer. You will be intrigued, very intrigued.' * Age *
'Ned Kelly Award winner Garry Disher has been producing high quality Australian crime novels for over 30 years and his latest, The Way It Is Now, is another terrific read...A well written and gripping mystery.' * Canberra Weekly *
'Garry Disher is arguably Australia's greatest living crime writer.' * Canberra Times *
'Take this to the beach when you can - and don't leave it unattended.' * Readings *
'Plenty for readers to sink their teeth into...more evocative, topical and well-constructed than most crime fiction out there.' * Robert Goodman, Pile by the Bed *
'This is another assured and modest crime novel by Australian grandmaster Garry Disher, whose books are so enjoyable precisely because they lack even the slightest glimmer or pretension. In a genre that increasingly demands a killer hook boiled down to a single sentence, Disher's focus is on character, and scalpel-sharp dissections of his selected themes.' * Simon McDonald *
'Disher's output is soaked in quality: crisp prose, fascinating characters, rich settings. Maybe his quiet, unflashy nature and consistent excellence mean he gets a little overlooked in some quarters, but those cognisant of the global boom of Australian crime writing know he is a giant on whose shoulders many of the hottest new stars are standing.' * NZ Listener *
