About this deal

The dialogue is convincing, with a generous helping of the Australian vernacular, and her depiction of coastal Queensland feels truly authentic.
Outback: A stunning new crime thriller (A DS Walker Thriller
As the number of days since the couple's disappearance climbs, Walker is joined by Rita's older sister. A detective herself with Berlin CID, she has flown to Australia - desperate to find her sister.Paradise is recommended to those that enjoy police procedurals with humanly developed characters and the novels of writers like Garry Disher. Paradise was provided by Embala Books through Netgalley upon the promise of a fair review and is set to be published on May 17, 2023. Barbara was a peripheral character here, I didn't realize how much I missed her until she was just some infrequent text messages, and I hope she'll make it into the next book in a more substantial way. Their search becomes ever more urgent as temperatures soar. Even if Walker does find the young couple, will it be too late?
Patricia Wolf | Goodreads Paradise by Patricia Wolf | Goodreads
The novel opens with a horrific home invasion involving two parents and their eight-year-old daughter, Gabby, in Gold Coast, Queensland. I loved the setting of Surfer’s beach by day. It’s a seaside city with its sparkling surf beaches, tourists and sunny days. But there’s also a seedier side hidden from the tourist, where violence, drugs and criminal activities thrive. Wolf’s setting is so vividly described you can practically smell the suntan lotion and salty air! DS Lucas Walker of the Australia Federal Police is running a training course on the Gold Coast not yet able to return to active duty after his leg was shattered while in his hometown of Caloodie where he got involved with a case.The plot is intense in Paradise and revolves around bikkie gangs, drugs and greed! Another gripping read and I also rated Paradise as a 5-star read. The B plot, the investigation of biker gang drug dealers, which is continued from the previous book, relies far too much on coincidence and unlikely interconnections. Nail-biting thriller! ... From the beginning I was hooked!... A thrilling ride that had me holding my breath through its finale . Highly recommended' Reader review, 5 stars
