`Victorian crime fiction king Garry Disher is a literary machine...Bring on the next case.' * Herald Sun *
`Well-crafted and leanly written, this tense novel grips from beginning to end.' * Canberra Weekly *
`There are many twists to a tale that opens with one of those closely observed vignettes of outer suburban life that Disher does so well...It's a riveting opening scene, setting in motion just one of the cases with which the amiable Auhl will deal in the most cathartic of ways.' * Age *
`Garry Disher has been giving us highly intelligent literary thrillers for decades and he gets better and better.' * Australian *
`Under the Cold Bright Lights is a gripping page-turner of a book with a truly likable hero. Auhl must wrestle with his own morality as he faces a flawed system that threatens to allow for more harm than it prevents. Award-winning author Garry Disher expertly weaves together Auhl's different cases and dilemmas to create an authentically Australian standalone police procedural with a memorably different kind of protagonist-one I'm hoping will be able to take his big heart and keen sense of empathy to more crime novels in the future.' * Criminal Element *
`Australian Master Garry Disher is one of the best contemporary crime authors because he manages to turn a solution into a mystery... If Karl Kraus is right with his assertion that only he who can turn a solution into a mystery is a real artist, then there can be no doubt about Disher's artistry.' * Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung *
