Thriller Police Procedural
A modern western set in an isolated Australian bush town
with a soaring crime rate, where a local constable with a
troubled past must investigate the death of a teenage girl
whose murder threatens to set the dusty streets ablaze.
Constable Paul Hirschhausen—”Hirsch”—is a recently demoted
detective sent from Adelaide, Australia’s southernmost
booming metropolis, to Tiverton, a one-road town in rustic,
backwater “wool and wheat” country three hours north. Hirsch
isn’t just a disgraced cop; the internal investigations
bureau is still trying to convict him of something, even if
it means planting evidence. When someone leaves a pistol
cartridge in his mailbox, Hirsch suspects that his career
isn't the only thing on the line.
But the tiny town of Tiverton has more crime than one lone
cop should have to handle. The stagnant economy, rural
isolation, and entrenched racism and misogyny mean every
case Hirsch investigates is a new basket of snakes. When the
body of a 16-year-old local girl is found on the side of the
highway, the situation in Tiverton gets even more sinister,
and whether or not he finds her killer, there’s going to be
hell to pay.
