Blurb: 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.
Praise for Four Days:
“One day, someone will come up with a word which goes deeper and darker than ‘noir’, and it might fit this debut novel. For now, the French word will have to do. If you are a fan of the genre, read this book. It won’t take you very long, but it will leave its mark.” — David Prestidge, CrimeFictionLover.com
“Iain Ryan has learned the lessons of the modern maestros James Ellroy, Ken Bruen and James Sallis, but his poetry and cadence is completely Australian.” — Peter Doyle, author of THE BIG WHATEVER and CITY OF SHADOWS
“Pure in its darkness, and perfect in its terror, Four Days is a brilliant debut.” — David Whish-Wilson, author of ZERO AT THE BONE and LINE OF SIGHT
“There are many Australian crime novels waiting to be written. With the publication of Four Days, there’s one less. Finally, noir fiction that does justice to the sleaze and corruption of Queensland in the eighties.” — Andrew Nette, author of GHOST MONEY and GUNSHINE STATE (forthcoming)
