    The Tilt
    <b>The latest stunning thriller from the bestselling author of <i>Scrublands</i> and <i>Treasure &amp; Dirt</i>.</b> <br/><br/>'Chris Hammer is in the platinum class of Australian Detective writers. He is an undeniable master of the carefully layered novel, which unfolds remorselessly to reveal the perpetrators of murder on the arid frontier.' - <b><i>The Weekend Australian </i>on <i>Treasure &amp; Dirt</i></b><br/><br/><i>A man runs for his life in a forest. <br/></i><br/><i>A woman plans sabotage.</i><br/><br/><i>A body is unearthed.</i><br/><br/>Newly-minted homicide detective Nell Buchanan returns to her home town, annoyed at being assigned a decades-old murder - a 'file and forget'. <br/><br/>But this is no ordinary cold case, as the discovery of more bodies triggers a chain of escalating events in the present day. As Nell starts to join the pieces together, she begins to question how well she truly knows those closest to her. Could her own family be implicated in the crimes?<br/><br/>The nearer Nell comes to uncovering the secrets of the past, the more dangerous the present becomes for her, as she battles shadowy assailants and sinister forces. Can she survive this harrowing investigation and what price will she have to pay for the truth? <br/><br/>Gripping and atmospheric, <i>The Tilt</i> is a stunning multi-layered novel by the acclaimed and award-winning author of the international bestsellers <i>Scrublands</i>, <i>Silver</i>, <i>Trust </i>and <i>Treasure &amp; Dirt.</i><br/><br/><b>Praise for <i>The Tilt</i></b><br/><br/>'Chris Hammer at the height of his powers ... absolutely not to be missed!' <b>Hayley Scrivenor, author of <i>Dirt Town</i></b><br/><br/>'A darkly simmering mystery, gorgeously told ...

Hammer's best yet!' <b>Emma Viskic, author of <i>Those Who Perish</i></b><br/><br/>'It would be unfair to say Chris Hammer is at the top of the crime writing game. Chris Hammer IS the game. <i>Full Tilt</i> may be a better title, given the speed with which readers will devour Chris Hammer's exceptional novel.' <b>Benjamin Stevenson, author of <i>Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone</i></b> <br/><br/>'Like everything Chris Hammer writes, <i>The Tilt</i> is a rich, complex thriller, packed with detail and intrigue. There's a reason why this guy is on my auto-read list!' <b>Christian White, author of <i>The Nowhere Child</i></b> <br/><br/>'Chris has an another absolute cracker on his hands here.

I'm glad I started reading it on my day off, because it's one of those stories you don't want to put down once you've started.
