World-class crime writing from a brilliant Australian author.
Darian Richards knew he should have let the phone keep ringing. But more than two decades as a cop leaves you with a certain outlook on life. No matter how much he tried to walk away, something, or someone, kept bringing him back to his gun.
One phone call. Two dead girls in a shallow water grave. And a missing cop to deal with.
Something bad is happening on the Gold Coast glitter strip. Amongst the thousands of schoolies and the usual suspects, someone is preying on beautiful young women. No one has noticed. No one knows why.
Darian looked into the eyes of those two dead girls. The last person to do that was their killer. He can't walk away. He will find out why.
...an effective, tough, brutal, well-written thriller that grips from the opening pages and never relinquishes its hold on your nerves. Likely to be the Australian crime debut of the year. - The Canberra Times on Promise
Promise is an unflinching thriller with a flawed hero, a brutal villain and a great sense of atmosphere, place, justice and injustice. - Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin
One of the most complex and uncompromising heroes since Harry Bosch. - Weekend Australian on Dead Girl Sing
Tony Cavanaugh brings new depth and dimension to crime fiction in this country. - The Weekend West on The Train Rider
