Four-time winner of the Ned Kelly
Award for Crime Fiction, Peter Temple is one of Australia’s most celebrated
crime novelists. His latest, The Broken
, is his finest book yet.

‘Brothers and sisters in crime,
worship at the Temple.’ Australian

‘Temple is as dark and as mean, as
cool and as mesmerising, as any James Ellroy or Elmore Leonard.’ Age

A wonderful novel about politics
and power, about black/white relations, about honour and decency in a corrupt
world. Compassionate and thrilling, you will not read a more spellbinding book
this year.
