Before It Breaks

By Dave Warner

Perth's own 'suburban boy' - and rock legend - Dave Warner, is back with a new novel.

Detective Daniel Clement is back in Broome, licking his wounds from a busted marriage and struggling to be impressed by his new team of small-town cops. Here, in the oasis on the edge of the desert, life is as stagnant as Clement’s latest career move.

But when a body is discovered at a local fishing spot, it is clearly not the result of a crocodile attack. Somewhere in Broome is a hunter of a different kind.

As more bodies are found, Clement races to solve a decades-old mystery before a monster cyclone hits.


‘Warner’s tone is laid-back and laconic, but with sentences as snappy as a nutcracker.’ Books+Publishing
