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?

User’s Review:

This is the second novel by Corris that I have read and it reads just as we’ll and smoothly as did my first, namely THE DUNBAR CASE. This title, also featuring rugged Australian PI Cliff Hardy also happens to be an ex-cop with plenty of friends also has plenty of enemies, noticeably on both sides of the law. In COMEBACK, Hardy is hired to track down and “remove” an apparent stalker from the life of an up and coming young Australian television personality. Less than a week into the job, said client is found dead in his car on his way to a quick round of golf and before we can say “whodunit” our man Cliff is the number one suspect in the eyes of the law. Well of course WE all know he did not do it but one death leads to a funeral which leads to a grieving father which leads to another investigation which leads to another murder which leads to … You get the idea.

Anyway COMEBACK is a tightly written explosive detective story featuring our man Cliff, some thugs, some more thugs, some coppers and some more thugs. Characters come and go and come again and we never are sure who they really are, but that can be attributed to the skill and talent of the writer who as we all know by now is world class. This book is around 100 pages longer than DUNBAR CASE and the story line is a little bit more complex. Consequently it is a better read overall. So in summary COMEBACK is another world class writing performance from Peter Coriss. Can’t wait for the next one!
