Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs • Unabridged • © 2007

Journalist Peter Temple’s novels have won five of Australia’s prestigious Ned Kelly Awards for crime fiction. THE BROKEN SHORE makes it easy to see why. Melbourne Homicide Detective Joe Cashin is recovering in his hometown, Port Monro, where it soon becomes apparent that big cities aren’t the only places big crimes occur. Peter Hosking handles the rough-and-tumble characters as easily as the more subtle ones. Child pornography, racism, sexual abuse, political intricacies, and Cashin’s personal problems all contribute to Temple’s sophisticated plot and allow Hosking’s performance to bring a host of truthful characters to light. There can be little doubt that this is an Australian original—earthy, raw, and savage, yet as breathtaking and surprising as the country itself.
