Day’s End is unmissable." Hayley Scrivenor, author of Dirt Town About the book: Hirsch’s rural beat is wide. Daybreak to day’s end, dirt roads and dust. In the time of the virus, Hirsch is seeing stresses heightened and social divisions cracking wide open; people getting close to the edge – himself included. Today he’s driving an international visitor around: Janne Van Sant, whose backpacker son went missing while the borders were closed. They’re checking out his last photo site, his last employer. A feeling that the stories don’t quite add up. Then a call comes in: A roadside fire. Nothing much - a suitcase soaked in diesel and set alight. But two noteworthy facts emerge. Janne knows more than Hirsch about forensic evidence. And the body in the suitcase is not her son’s. About the author: Garry Disher has published over 50 highly praised, prize-winning and widely translated books in a range of genres: Crime thrillers, literary/general novels, short-story collections, YA/children’s fiction, and writers’ handbooks. His growing international reputation has seen him tour Germany and the United States, where his crime and YA novels have appeared on best-books-of-the-year lists and won various awards. His latest titles include a literary novel, Her, the ninth Wyatt thriller, Kill Shot, the stand-alone crime novel, The Way it is Now, and Day’s End, the fourth in his best-selling and prize-winning Hirsch series. * The Brisbane Writers Festival on 10–14 May brings together festive entertainment over five nights, four days and more than 100 events. From blockbuster bestsellers to literary luminaries and everything in between, BWF 2023 is an unmissable adventure from beginning to end. Learn More
