Constable Paul Hirschhausen—"Hirsch"—is a recently demoted detective sent from Adelaide, Australia's southernmost booming metropolis, to Tiverton, a one-road town in rustic, backwater "wool and wheat" country three hours north. Hirsch is more than just a disgraced cop, a rumored whistle-blower—internal investigations is still trying to convict him of something, even if it means planting evidence, and someone has a bullet they'd like to put in his head, as has been made clear by the pistol cartridge left in his mailbox. Hirsch is just trying to keep his job, but the tiny town of Tiverton has more crime than one lone cop should have to handle. The stagnant economy, rural isolation, and entrenched racism and misogyny mean every case Hirsch investigates is a new basket of snakes. And when the body of a sixteen-year-old local girl is found on the side of the highway, the situation gets even more sinister. Whether or not he finds her killer, there's going to be hell to pay.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Disher has drawn both a vivid and visceral picture of a backblocks bush town, its inhabitants ground down by the stresses of isolation, hard work, and irregular, relentlessly shrinking incomes…The story pulls no punches.” Guardian (London)
“Disher’s eye for detail is acute and his poetic analogies precise…[Hell to Pay] continues the work of reimagining the crime genre in a very Australian way, and does it beautifully.” Sydney Morning Herald
“Trust me, mate: readers will want to make a return visit to Disher’s Australia.” Christian Science Monitor, praise for the author
