This is the 33rd Cliff Hardy PI book. Hardy is a knockabout character who grows on you. He lost his PI licence and is packing up his office before going overseas on a much needed break. In the process he discovers a file from 20 years ago that was never closed. The ensuing story is the recollection of how that case unfolded. It started with a teenage boy who goes missing on the verge of his final year exams. The case becomes complicated by murder, a conman, and a crooked government minister. He follows the trail through a lot of familiar settings in Sydney and elsewhere in the state. But he never manages to find the boy. I give the story 4 stars. ( )

Cleaning out his office, he comes across an open file - an unresolved case from the 1980s. He starts reading and is thrown back to his investigation of the disappearance of Justin Hampshire. At first glance a straightforward missing person matter, the investigation took on twists and turns involving military history, Sydney criminals and corruption at high levels. The Hampshire case took Cliff from the south coast to the Blue Mountains and posed some unresolved questions which have preyed on his mind for 20 years . . . "--Provided by publisher.… (more)
