When vigilante justice-seeker Claymore Straker is witness to the murders of a family he has befriended, and his lover's husband and son disappear, his investigations take him to the darkest places he could ever have imagined ... The stunning fourth instalment in the critically acclaimed Claymore Straker series. 'A stormer of a thriller - vividly written, utterly tropical, totally gripping' Peter James 'A fast-paced action thriller, beautifully written' Tim Marshall, author of Prisoners of Geography 'Hardisty is a fine writer and Straker is a great lead character' Lee Child _____________________ It's 1997, and eight months since vigilante justice-seeker Claymore Straker fled South Africa after his explosive testimony to Desmond Tutu's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. In Paris, Rania LaTour, Claymore's former lover, comes home to find that her son and her husband, a celebrated human rights lawyer, have disappeared. On an isolated island off the coast of East Africa, the family that Clay has befriended is murdered as he watches. So begins the fourth instalment in the Claymore Straker series, a breakneck journey through the darkest reaches of the human soul, as Clay and Rania fight to uncover the mystery behind the disappearances and murders, and find those responsible. At times brutal, often lyrical, but always gripping, Absolution is a thriller that will leave you breathless and questioning the very basis of how we live and why we love. ____________________ Praise for Paul E. Hardisty 'A trenchant and engaging thriller that unravels this mysterious land in cool, precise sentences' Stav Sherez, Catholic Herald 'This is a remarkably well-written, sophisticated novel in which the people and places, as well as frequent scenes of violent action, all come alive on the page...' Literary Review 'Gripping and exciting ... the quality of Hardisty's writing and the underlying truth of his plots sets this above many other thrillers' West Australian 'Searing ... at times achieves the level of genuine poetry' Publishers Weekly 'Beautifully written, blisteringly authentic, heart-stoppingly tense and unusually moving' Paul Johnston 'The plot burns through petrol, with multiple twists and turns' Vicky Newham

MEDIA REVIEWS
* `A solid, meaty thriller - Hardisty is a fine writer and Straker is a great lead character' Lee Child * `A trenchant and engaging thriller that unravels this mysterious land in cool, precise sentences' Stav Sherez, Catholic Herald * `Reconciliation for the Dead is a gripping, page-turning thriller that is overflowing with substance to go along with Hardisty's atmospheric prose and strong narrative style' Craig Sisterson, Mystery Magazine * `This is a remarkably well-written, sophisticated novel in which the people and places, as well as frequent scenes of violent action, all come alive on the page...' Literary Review * `Hardisty doesn't put a foot wrong in this forceful, evocative thriller ... the author's deep knowledge of the settings never slows down the non-stop action, with distant echoes of a more-moral minded Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne' Maxim Jakubowski * `The writing at times is poetic, at other times filled with tension in a narrative complete with well delineated characters and several shocks. Highly recommended' Shotsblog * `Fast-paced, gripping and exciting' Western Australian
