reviews
  • Peter Clancy is an amalgam of characters from crime fiction and film noir - a world-weary type.

    – Sydney Daily Telegraph
  • Very definitely earning place in the genre of murder-mystery writing.

    – Blue Wolf Reviews
  • Homecountry is as droll, sarcastic, funny and boozed up as the outback it's set in. An enjoyable read that features realistic, classic Australian characters.

    – Australian Penthouse
  • The genius of Lawless lies with his ability to create a disturbingly real setting for the novel whilst maintaining consistent, well-rounded fictional characters.

    – Get Frank Magazine (New Zealand)
  • As a debut novel, HOMECOUNTRY is well written, with strong storytelling, particularly when you consider that the central character is just a bit ambiguous.

    – Australian Crime Fiction
