'The Broken Shore is the best debut novel I've read this year.'
Harlan Coben, international bestselling author

A novel about a place, about family, about politics and power, and the need to live decently in a world where so much is rotten.

Joe Cashin was different once. He moved easily then; was surer and less thoughtful. But there are consequences when you’ve come so close to dying. For Cashin, they included a posting away from the world of Homicide to the quiet place on the coast where he grew up. Now all he has to do is play the country cop and walk the dogs. And sometimes think about how he was before. Then prominent local Charles Bourgoyne is bashed and left for dead. Everything seems to point to three boys from the nearby Aboriginal community; everyone seems to want it to. But Cashin is unconvinced. And as tragedy unfolds relentlessly into tragedy, he finds himself holding onto something that might be better let go...

"The best yet... The Broken Shore might just be a great Australian novel, irrespective of genre."
The Age

'Read page one and I challenge you not to finish it'
The Independent on Sunday

'Peter Temple is deservedly the leading light of Australian crime fiction. The Broken Shore is a wonderful novel . . . this is crime writing at its very best, and discovering Peter Temple has been the highlight of my year.'
Mark Billingham, bestselling author of Their Little Secret

'Peter Temple is an addiction. Read one book and you want to read them all. Now.'
Val McDermid, bestselling crime writer

"Peter Temple has been described as one of Australia’s best crime novelists, but he’s far better than that. He’s one of our best novelists full stop."
The Sun Herald
