You can read about Gary Disher’s novel Wyatt, which won this year’s Ned Kelly Award, at Craig Sisterton’s interesting and informative Crime Watch blog.

Here is my review of Chain of Evidence the book that won Gary Disher the 2007 Ned Kelly.

    >Thanks, Norman. I recently read the first Challis/Destry novel, Dragon Man, and enjoyed it very much. So much so that I've bought the second, Kittyhawk Down. I think it will take me a while to get up to Chain of Evidence, though, as I think there are 5 or 6 in the series. Wyatt does not appeal to me as it is nth in another series and also I don;t like books that glamourise or romanticise crime and/or tell the story from the criminal's perspective. As you say in your review of Chain of Evidence, I'm more of a Harry Bosch-style reader.

    >Yes! Totally agree on this. I don't like books told from the murderer/psychopath's point of view or that goes into their thinking.I'd rather read about a decent protagonist who's unraveling the crime, characters I can like.I am reading one of Disher's other Challis/Destroy books which is enjoyable.
