Four Days

BRISBANE, 1984. Jim Harris is a hard-drinking Australian detective on his way to a nervous breakdown. Every day, he works alongside corrupt cops and dangerous crooks. That is, until a brutal murder case unravels his career, bringing past indiscretions to light.

Alone, afraid, and out of control, Harris makes a pact with himself:

Four days to locate the killer.

Four days to take revenge.

Four days to find redemption.

Sparsely worded, supremely evocative and pitch-black, FOUR DAYS transports the reader to 1984 Brisbane where corruption rules and heroes aren't all they are cracked up to be. A character study set in sunny, sordid climes, this is classic noir twisted into a local setting.
