Pg. 69: Garry Disher's "Under the Cold Bright Lights"

Featured at the Page 69 Test: Under the Cold Bright Lights by Garry Disher.

About the book, from the publisher:
A cold-case investigator will stop at nothing to find justice in this gripping standalone by Australian crime legend Garry Disher.

The young detectives think Alan Auhl is washed up, but that doesn’t faze him. He does things his own way—and gets results.

He still lives with his ex-wife, offand on, in a big house full of random boarders and hard-luck stories. And he’s still a cop, even though he retired from Homicide some years ago.

He works cold cases now. Like the death of John Elphick—his daughters are still convinced he was murdered; the coroner is not so sure. Or the skeleton that’s just been found under a concrete slab. Or the doctor who killed two wives and a girlfriend, and left no evidence at all.

Auhl will stick with these cases until justice is done. One way or another.
