for the police to take the blame for lawlessness and corruption.
'Peter Temple's Truth may well prove to be the year's best thriller... It's the fierce energy of Temple's writing that is the book's outstanding feature - the dialogue and linking prose almost vie to outdo each other in brilliance' Sunday Times. 'A thriller of dazzling richness... leaves the reader ravaged, furious and marvelling at his technique... a stunning piece of psychological portraiture' Guardian. 'One of the world's most distinguished literary crime novelists' Independent. 'Tautly constructed and compulsively paced... his dialogue is entirely distinctive, full of the mangled poetry and beautiful solecisms of ordinary speech' Observer. 'What makes Temple so compelling is his divine use of language. The novel is written with grace and subtlety, elegant but also violent, dark and yet suffused with sympathy for the protagonists, cast in dialogue that is both distinctive and surprising' Daily Mail. 'With crackling prose and sparkling dialogue, Temple has fashioned a fashioned a fast-paced atmospheric police work of genuine class' Mail On Sunday. 'Temple's award-winning The Broken Shore was good; this is better' Independent. 'Doesn't disappoint for a single second' Daily Mail.
