Wyatt by Garry Disher is a new book, featuring one of Garry Disher’s older characters who has been ‘rested’ for a few years. It’s a great thing that Wyatt is back because this is a terrific read. It’s a crime/thriller set in Melbourne so a lot of the locations will be familiar to Melbournian’s. Southbank, Abbotsford and Glen Iris are a few of the places where the action takes place. Wyatt is an enigmatic, career criminal who is back in town and needs money. His old methods of burglary and ‘stick ups’ are a bit more difficult these days, as he hasn’t kept up with technology. Smart alarm systems and computers are beyond him, so he has to rely on other people a bit more than he really wants to. I read this book in three sittings, and thoroughly recommend it. Penguin will be re publishing two earlier Wyatt books in one volume soon, and I look forward to that.
