Praise for The Dragon Man
“A straightforward police story with a terrific plot, nuanced characters and solid procedures, served up on refreshing new turf.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“A first-rate piece of crime writing.”—The Washington Post Book World
“Colorful . . . Disher has literary talent and imagination.”—Chicago Tribune
“Disher makes his characters as interesting as his plot.”—Portsmouth Herald
“A police procedural of a very different kind . . . A ‘down under’ atmosphere that most American readers will find unique.”—The Plain Dealer
“The American debut for Australian crime writer extraordinaire Disher is as complex and dark as anything by Ian Rankin or Michael Connelly.”—Las Vegas Mercury
"Disher delivers an intelligent, atmospheric police procedural . . . Fans of such gritty yet cerebral crime novelists as Ian Rankin and Jack Harvey should be well pleased."—Publishers Weekly
"This series debut from the prolific Disher (The Sunken Road, 1996, etc.) doesn’t read like one, thanks to fully formed characters and wall-to-wall mysteries. The offbeat setting’s a bonus for US readers."—Kirkus Reviews

I believe this is Garry Disher's fist novel and I look forward to more of his work. It is a nice change of venue.
