“Some of the old peninsula towns like Mornington, Hastings and Rosebud have doubled in size in the 20 years I’ve been down here, which causes a headache for the police, social services…
“It’s an interesting area in which I could explore things like social tensions.”
Garry returns this year to his beloved Wyatt novels—so-called because they centre on a calamitous professional criminal called Wyatt —with the eighth instalment: The Heat.
He describes his Wyatt books as less an exploration of social tensions and “much more based in caper novels.”
In The Heat, Garry promises that old-fashioned thing we all long for: a good story.
The Heat (Text Publishing) is due out for publication on October 21.
