Winner of the 2010 Miles Franklin Literary Award and the 2012 German International Deutscher Krimipreis.

At the close of a long day, Inspector Stephen Villani stands in the bathroom of a luxury apartment high above the city. In the glass bath, a young woman lies dead, a panic button within reach.

So begins Truth, the companion novel to Peter Temple's bestselling masterpiece, The Broken Shore, winner of the Duncan Lawrie Dagger for Best Crime Novel.

Villani's life is his work. It is his identity, his calling, his touchstone. But now, over a few sweltering summer days, as fires burn across the state and his superiors and colleagues scheme and jostle, he finds all the certainties of his life are crumbling.

Truth is an extraordinary novel about a man, a family, a city. It is about violence, murder, love, corruption, honour and deceit. And it is about truth.

'Truth is about family and morality, city and countryside, private dilemmas and public responsibilities. It's also a stunning piece of psychological portraiture.' Guardian

    By Leanne Spiers
    A delight for fans of criminal fiction. A bonus that it is Australian. Set in Melbourne, the story slides with the ease of a hot Summer's day into local dialect and culture. It oozes lazy Aussie drawl but hits hard in the suspense department. The dialogue is blunt and will have foreigners at a loss to understand our colloquialisms. It builds a world of corruption and dirty business that a true fan of crime fiction will lap up.
