    Halifax: Transgression
    Dark and twisted, this addictive thriller will keep you guessing right up until the final chapter. Loved it!' Rebecca Gibney<br/><br/>Based on the hugely successful Channel 9 drama series starring Rebecca Gibney as forensic psychiatrist Dr Jane Halifax, whose criminal profiling, twenty years later, might be the only way to track down Australia's most dangerous serial killer yet.<br/><br/>The first murder is brazen, violent and ritualistic. Committed in the victim's home, the killer leaves few clues as to their motive or their identity. All the police know is that the perpetrator entered the house, impaled the art collector on one of his own priceless sculptures, before melting away into the night.<br/><br/>Inspector Eric Ringer is desperate for Dr Jane Halifax to profile the killer, but Jane is cautious. She and Eric have a past ... plus, she hates these kinds of cases; a psychopath is a psychopath, any way you slice it.<br/><br/>But there's something about this killer that intrigues Jane. And as the bodies pile up, Jane must use all her knowledge and intuition to enter the mind of the murderer before they strike again.<br/><br/>Join Jane Halifax as she embarks on the most challenging - and chilling - case of her career.<br/>Review: 'A nail-biter with graphic, shocking imagery and a fast pace that's no doubt a legacy of his work in film and television ... Characters are deftly drawn and fleshed out, nuanced and humane.' • The Age •<br/>'What I love about the book is that you get to hear and feel what Jane's going through, the emotions going through her head . . . you can't really portray that on the TV.' - QBD Book Club<br/>'Dark and twisted, this addictive thriller will keep you guessing right up until the final chapter. Loved it!' - Rebecca Gibney<br/>'The triumphant return of Jane Halifax! A psychological thriller that grabs you from the first sentence.' - Andy Muir<br/>'A page-turner that keeps you guessing right to the very end. Taut, dark, tense ... and not for the faint-hearted. Aussie noir at its best.' - Fenella Souter<br/>'Taut and thrilling ... A string of unforgettable crimes in an evocatively-drawn Melbourne with an unexpected twist at the end ... If you like Harlan Coben or the great Dashiell Hammett, you're going to love Roger Simpson. Already a legend in TV writing, a fabulous new crime novelist has hit the bookshelves. Don't be beguiled and think this is just a TV spin-off. It's not. It's rip-roaring crime writing at its best. Emotional at its heart, thought-provoking and wise. You're in the tense grip of a master at work with this book.' - Tony Cavanaugh<br/>'I love how this transition from screen to page means a deeper understanding of a favourite character and offers more reasons for her enduring popularity; what could be more satisfying than watching Jane Halifax demonstrate her professional skill while navigating the next stage of her own turbulent life?' - Caroline Baum<br/>'A taut, well written thriller with engaging characters, psychological complexity and a plot that will keep you turning pages right until the end.' - David Williamson
