The Undertow
IF YOU HAVEN’T READ a Cliff Hardy thriller, then you don’t really know Australian crime fiction. In Peter Corris’ 30th Cliff Hardy book, the past is coming back to haunt Frank Parker, a friend of Hardy’s. Early in his career, Frank solved a case involving a doctor who hired a hit man to kill another doctor…or thought he solved it. Now many years later, it emerges the doctor might have been innocent.
