'Disher is the gold standard for rural noir.' * Chris Hammer *
'There is no peace for a good man when the mercury rises, tempers fray and violence simmers. This is a scorchingly good novel.' * Michael Robotham *
'Peace tells the story of a cop exiled to a wounded town in South Australia's dry country. In this brilliant novel Disher takes his readers on a harrowing journey.' * Jock Serong *
'I loved Peace. It is an an uplifting book, an utterly compelling mystery with rare heart and humanity. If you enjoyed Jane Harper's The Lost Man, this novel is for you.' * Dervla McTiernan *
'Peter Temple and Garry Disher will be identified as the crime writers who redefined Australian crime fiction in terms of its form, content and style.' * Sydney Morning Herald *
'Mark Peace down as one to look out for, and if you have not already done so, give Bitter Wash Road a read, you won't be disappointed.' * Jeff Popple *
'The cast of Peace is strong and the local colour is as vivid as ever. Disher was portraying the harshness of the Australian landscape long before Jane Harper's The Dry ignited a new wave of Australian crime fiction, and fans of her work, and Chris Hammer's Scrublands, will find much to enjoy here. Disher provides the complete mystery package: unobtru sively slick detection, plenty of surprises and mounting thrills, with a protagonist that demonstrates a remarkable level of humanity.' * Books+Publishing *
'Peace is marvellous, and Garry Disher, as always, is in award-winning form, creating a town so vivid and hot you could swelter just reading it - and you'd look askance at everybody you pass on the street.' * Readings *
'Disher is a master of crime and this has to be one of the most enjoyable books I've read in a while.' * Mark Rubbo, Readings *
'If you love Aussie rural noir, this one's for you.' * New Idea *
'A thrilling mystery with plenty of surprises.' * 2SER Tuesday Book Club *
'There is very little peace in this gripping country cop procedural.' * David Astle *
'Peace is rural noir at its best.' * Canberra Times *
'This is one cracker of a book and there will be little peace until you turn the final page.' * Weekly Times *
'Peace is a very impressive piece of crime fiction. There has been a lot of fuss about Australian rural noir in recent years, but few, if any, do it better than Disher.' * Canberra Weekly *
'Garry Disher shows why he's the master...A novel of sweat-inducing authenticity.' * NZ Listener *
'A very, very good novel.' -- David Gaunt * RN Bookshelf *
