Shortlisted for a 2010 UK Debut Dagger Award and winner of the Ned Kelly Best First Fiction Award, Prime Cutis what crime reviewer Graeme Blundell calls a classily written story with 'mordant wit and a fine sense of place'.
Meet Cato Kwong - disgraced cop and ex-poster boy for the police force. Banished to the stock squad after the fallout from a police frame-up, Cato is brought in from the cold to solve the case of a torso washed up on the wild shores of the Great Southern Ocean. But Cato faces powerful opposition when his investigation lifts the lid on the exploitation of migrant workers and disturbs an even darker criminal mind.
