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

even if it means planting evidence, and someone has a bullet they’d like to put
in his head, as has been made clear by the pistol cartridge left in his mailbox.
Hirsch is just trying to keep his job, 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

local girl is found on the side of the highway, the situation gets
even more sinister. Whether or not he finds her killer, there’s going to be
hell to pay. Download and start listening now!
