Cliff Hardy 37

by Peter Corris

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/12/2012

RRP  $17.99 $16.50
'The godfather of Australian crime fiction.'

Cliff Hardy has his PI licence back - but does he still have what it takes to cut it on the mean streets of Sydney?

Cliff reckons the skills are still there, if a little rusty, and actor Bobby Forrest's case looks promising. Bobby's a nice-enough guy, but why is he being stalked by a red-hot brunette? And why did he have to go online to find a date?

When Bobby is murdered, it comes as a shock. Cliff's only solid lead is a white Commodore, the most ubiquitous car around. When a surprising connection with his own past surfaces, Cliff is forced to put some of his skills to the test. But is he heading in the wrong direction?

Somehow he has to put it all together without losing his licence again, but in true Hardy fashion he's managing to find his way into trouble, not out of it.

Peter Corris

Peter Corris was born in Victoria in 1942, and did his undergraduate degree at the University of Melbourne. He took a doctorate in history from the ANU, but in the mid 1970s he left academia for journalism. From 1980 to 1981 he was literary editor of the National Times.

Corris’s first Cliff Hardy novel The Dying Trade was published in 1980. It not only introduced a sleuth who was to become an enduring legend, but it was also a long love letter to the seamy side of Sydney itself. Over more than three decades Corris has now written thirty-eight Cliff Hardy books, and the city of Sydney is as significant a presence in the books as the figure of Hardy. The third in the series, The Empty Beach, was in 1985 made into a film starring Bryan Brown. In 1999 Corris was presented with a Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement Award.

Peter Corris is the author of more than sixty titles in all. He has written both historical fiction and other crime series. He has also worked extensively in non-fiction, including an as-told-to autobiography of the Australian eye surgeon Fred Hollows, and books on sport and history. He lived in Sydney, New South Wales with his family until his death in August 2018.

in 2018 Corris was awarded the inaugural Danger Lifetime Achievement Award posthumously for the Cliff Hardy novels.
