Garry Disher's cool, enigmatic anti-hero Wyatt has a job--a jewel heist. The kind Wyatt likes. Nothing extravagant, nothing greedy. Stake out the international courier, one Alain Le Page, hold up the goods in transit and get away fast.

Wyatt prefers to work alone, but this is Eddie Oberin's job. Eddie's very smart ex-wife Lydia has the inside information. Add Wyatt's planning genius and meticulous preparation, and what could possibly go wrong?

Plenty. And when you wrong Wyatt, you don't get to just walk away.

Taut plots, brilliant writing and relentless pace; plus an unforgettable cast, including the ever-elusive Wyatt himself: these are the hallmarks of Garry Disher's Wyatt series.

From the Hardcover edition.

“Wyatt is a fast-paced thriller with more action than a Bruce Willis’ movie, and a bigger knockout punch than Rocky. Gary Disher may not have been a household name until now, but that’s all about to change thanks to Wyatt.”

MostlyFiction Book Reviews

While Soho Crime publishes Disher’s Inspector Challis novels, the earlier novels in the Wyatt series are out-of-print, and so Wyatt may be the first novel readers catch in the series.

ForeWord Reviews

The worst instance is near the end of the story: Wyatt decides to carry a single bullet in his pistol despite the fact that throughout the book he has carried a full magazine.
