Overview

Australia's queen of crime fiction is back with a chilling new story that taps straight into the issues of our times.

Detective-Inspector Deb Hawkins has domestic violence in her sights. But as head of a new police unit that targets violence against women within cultural enclaves, she is battling a wall of silence. How can she win the trust of Rana Al-Sheikly, the distressed young woman she encounters during the investigation of yet another gang-related drive-by shooting? And what is the connection between the al-Sheikly family and the crime gangs that are running rife in the suburbs?

A series of anonymous emails has Deb following her own domestic secrets, too - back to her childhood in the country town of Garralong, and the tragic shooting murder of her police sergeant father in the line of duty. Someone is digging up the past - threatening Deb's hard-won career, and even her life.

Dishonour is a gripping and timely new novel from one of Australia's most respected crime writers.
