'[A]n exciting police procedural set in Canberra's sometimes-murky political climate ... will delight fans of Shane Moloney'--Canberra Times
'I salivated at the prospect of a book which combines two of my favourite things: crime fiction and dead politicians.'--Fair Dinkum Crime
'Dead Cat Bounce builds as much tension as a hung parliament. Peter Cotton utilises his intimate knowledge of the workings government, office politics, Parliament House and Canberra to build a fabulous murder mystery. It almost crosses genres from crime fiction to political satire. The yarn has finesse and pace and is a stunning first novel.'--Paul Bongiorno
'[A] cracker of a novel ... so good, it's hard to believe it's his first ... believable, daring, and page-turning. Well done, Mr Cotton.'--Deborah Sloan "Waikato Times "
'[A] solid police procedural with its finger on the political pulse of a fictionalised Canberra ... From Capital Hill, ringed by the deceptively calm leafy suburbs, to the shores of the spectacular Lake George, Cotton knows his beat.'--Sue Turnbull "Sydney Morning Herald & The Age "
'Australian politics has been pretty weird lately, but this book proves conclusively that truth is not stranger than fiction. An election is the background for kidnap, murder and mayhem in this nail-biter. Canberra's corridors of power become the mean streets of crime fiction.'--Laurie Oakes
'With an insider's knowledge of politics, and a journalist's feel for a story, Cotton has produced a firecracker of a novel.'--Robert Gott
