ABOUT THIS BOOK
overview

reviews
  • How they resolve problems 'Down under,' is interwoven throughout this story to the 'Bloody end' in the Dark Waters of crocodile infested Outback. The suspense and intrigue will keep the reader involved to that end.

    – Roy Murry Reviews
  • I enjoyed Dark Water a lot. I've read all of the Peter Clancy series. This is mystery as black humour, at its best: a thrilling ride through the Australian outback, full of tongue-in-cheek references, a bit of romance (where would Pete be without his love-interest?) and a lot of blood-curdling action. It's topical, satirical, biting. TW Lawless’s style is unapologetically unique, and that's part of his allure for me. All in all, a fun ride.

    – A Most Avid Reader
  • I really enjoyed the individuality Lawless brought to this novel. It manages to set itsself apart from other Mystery novels I've read recently. Australia, Crocodiles, and so many other aspects that I am not familiar with, but thoroughly enjoyed getting lost in and learning about.
    A wonderful cast of characters and a mystery that will keep you on your toes.
