Publisher's Summary

Hirsh was a promising metropolitan officer - until he blew the whistle on a case of police corruption. Now he’s been exiled to a one-cop station in South Australia’s wheatbelt. Called a dog by his own cop brothers. 
So when he’s sent to investigate gunfire up isolated Bitter Wash Road, he suspects his backup might be the one to put a bullet in him. He’s wrong. But the events that unfold turn out to be a lot more sinister.

Great story - awful narration

I persisted with the story and enjoyed it but the experience was marred for me by the sloppy, ill-prepared narration. Shaun Grindell has a lovely timbre to his voice, but I doubt that he did much research & preparation before recording. Time and again the Australian place names were mis-pronounced - so much so that at times I had to stop and wind back to try and work out where he was actually talking about. Also, some commonplace words were pronounced in a most peculiar way - I hesitate to say wrongly because I accept there can be variations. Once again I had to re-listen to figure a couple of them out. But even worse was the appalling accent he gave to quite a few of the characters, especially Hirsch, the main character. He sounded like an overly young twerp with a New Zealand accent.
