Broken by his last case, homicide detective Joe Cashin has fled the city and returned to his hometown to run its one-man police station while his wounds heal and the nightmares fade. He lives a quiet life with his two dogs in the tumbledown wreck his family home has become. It's a peaceful existence - ideal for the rehabilitating man. But his recovery is rudely interrupted by a brutal attack on Charles Bourgoyne, a prominent member of the local community. Suspicion falls on three young men from the local Aboriginal community. But Cashin's not so sure and as the case unfolds amid simmering corruption and prejudice, he finds himself holding on to something that it might be better to let go. The relentless story of a town with a hidden past versus a man who is trying to forget his, The Broken Shore delivers powerful, lean writing, pumping more muscle and feeling into one paragraph than other writers can muster in a page.

A “bloody, believable and intoxicating” collection of short stories by the acclaimed author of Born Free (The Herald, UK). Laura Hird became one of the most exciting new voices in Scottish literature with her Whitbread Award-shortlisted debut novel, Born Free. Known for pitch-perfect characters dealing with the despair and dysfunction of contemporary life, Hird continues to mine this trademark territory in Hope and Other Urban Tales. Set in the low-rent areas of Edinburgh, Hird’s slices of reality are gritty, bleak and often darkly funny. Yet the possibility of hope, always just out of reach, unifies this collection, conveying that just as circumstances can reveal the morally obscure darkness in ‘good’ people, so can seemingly irredeemable characters harbor well-hidden pockets of humanity. “Hird reminds one of an early Ian McEwan or Iain Banks, deeply unsettling, deathly comic and peculiarly tender.”—Sunday Times, UK “Hird controls her material brilliantly. If you like your fiction with razor blades secreted in the soup, then get this, pronto.”—Scotsman, UK
