    1. When you're touched by evil, it leaves deep within you a trace like some dormant virus waiting to be reactivated into full-blown dead. In 1999 and 2000, three young women go missing on separate occasions, last seen leaving a nightclub in the Perth suburb of Claremont. With the police not making any headway in the investigations, one of the families contacts renowned private investigator Snowy Lane for help. Clear to the Horizon is distinctly Australian, loaded with local colloquialisms and local [...]

    2. Ive been slowly reading this over the last month. A very good literary crime novel set in my home town. It was interesting reading a novel about a place I've lived majority of my life. Snowy seemed a like a decent character but I just couldn't embrace him like other PIs. Obviously influenced by a real crime in the 90s. Very well written and researched but I just found it a little too intricate which is a weird criticism haha. I think locals and australians will understand the aussie language, an [...]

    3. Back in the late 1970's Dave Warner released music that became part of the soundtrack of my life. When I discovered CITY OF LIGHT, MURDER IN THE FRAME, EXXXPRESSO and other books by him in the late 1990's / early 2000's I was more than a bit chuffed to think a musical hero was also a lover of crime fiction. And I bloody loved all of those booksTY OF LIGHT was Dave Warner's first book (from memory), it won the 1996 West Australian Premier's Award for best fiction, and it introduced a young police [...]

    4. 3.5/4* This was an interesting book to read, because it was set largely in Perth, so I recognised a lot of the landscapes. I also knew about the Claremont killings as a real case as they happened during my lifetime, so I was keen to o read this book to find out how Warner approached that case in his novel. I liked the character of Snowy, and would be interested to read Warner's first book featuring a younger Snowy. There were a lot of similes, which annoyed me a bit at first coz it was overkill [...]

    5. You'll feel the heat, the dust and the breeze. The islolation will quieten the noise around you and you'll fall head first into a story filled with people rather than characters. Real, terrifyingly real. The repercussions of crime doesn't just affect the families And, it's a bloody good story.

    6. Inspired by the Claremont serial killings this book starts with quite a procedural look at the investigation. A little dry but still quite interesting to get a more realistic idea of how an investigation is done.The rests of the book is the more familiar crime writing style with the detecting shared between two major characters. The author expertly moves your attention to potential suspects throughout the book - I felt a little like a goat with a carrot being dangled in front of it :) Was a terr [...]

    7. A well written book addressing Perth serial killings. Whilst a little dry at times, it builds to a great conclusion.
