Reviewed for Reviewing the Evidence, another crafty volume in the Wyatt series in which Wyatt meets his approval-hungry criminal nephew. Good stuff.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 186448330X, Paperback)

The Fallout is Wyatt's sixth job, and it takes off where Port Vila Blues left him. On a boat with policewoman Liz Redding, and a fortune in stolen gems. He escapes, triggering a manhunt, but who exactly is hunting him? While others search for sunken treasure in Bass Strait and a stone-cold killer is sprung from goal, Wyatt joins forces with hiS nephew to pull one of his trickiest robberies. In doing so he faces his most dangerous task yet-plumbing the depths within himself-and it may well prove fatal. Strong on detail and with that coldly detatched understatement we are used to from Disher, although there are signs...that Wyatt may be more human and less callous than we thought. J.R. Carroll In a mirky world where the cops are robbers, old-style crim Wyatt positively shines. Clear taut writing - not a word wasted. Marele Day For pure excitement and escapist entertainment it is hard to go past Garry Disher. Canberra Times

Drugging his former police officer girlfriend and fleeing with a cache of stolen gems he subsequently discovers are fakes, enduring thief Wyatt begrudgingly joins forces with his estranged nephew to engineer a complicated heist.
