Beware of the Dog

(Cliff Hardy  #15)
by

Peter Corris

 

Although I have not read all of the Cliff Hardy novels, Beware of the Dog is the fifteenth in the Cliff Hardy series of novels by Peter Coriss.  It was my tenth Cliff Hardy read, which leaves me with over thirty to read if I want to read all available in the series.

 

Beware of the Dog begins with Cliff Hardy lecturing students at a Sydney College of Technical and Further Education (TAFE).  After the lecture he is approached by a student for an interview.  Quite rightly Cliff is sceptical about this and declines until she follows him to his office.

Upon accepting her as his client Hardy becomes wary of his new client’s mental stability.  The client also wants Cliff to follow her husband.  From there on there is twist upon twist and it did take some concentration to follow who belonged to whom.  And who is related to whom and any more will spoil the story.

Beware of the Dog is narrated by Peter Hosking who is an ideal narrator of the Hardy series of books.

As with all the Cliff Hardy books I have read so far, Beware of the Dog is a quick, enjoyable three star read.

Book Review-Black-Prince

Black Prince

(Cliff Hardy series)

by

Peter Corris

 

Peter Corris has produced another easy listening Cliff Hardy novel complete with the good, the bad, and a plot that keeps moving and involves drugs and racism.

Mention must also be made of Peter Hosking who does an excellent job of narrating the Cliff Hardy series.

Book Review-Wet-Graves

Wet Graves

by

Peter Corris

 

Wet Graves is another in the Cliff Hardy series by Peter Corris.  Set in an around Sydney, Wet Graves follows the adventures, or obstacles that private eye Cliff Hardy encounters while solving cases for clients.

Wet Graves is a light read about Cliff Hardy who does not appear to be a rich private detective but does make ends meet.  Like many of this genre Cliff is a retired policeman who still has some contacts on the police force which help him occasionally.

I enjoy novels set in Australia, possibly because many of the areas and locations I have visited, during my life, or am at least familiar with.

Finally, I have to pay tribute to Peter Hosking who narrated the audio version to which I listened.  Peter has a gravelly voice which seems a perfect fit for Cliff’s character.  His variations also work well for Cliff’s mates as well.

I have only given Wet Graves a three star rating simply because it is not the first Peter Coriss – Cliff Hardy book I have read, but the first I have reviewed here.

 Not a heavy read but enjoyable.
