    The first of the Peter Clancy books from T.W Lawless, HOMECOUNTRY takes Clancy to exactly that home to the town where he grew up, in outback Queensland to bury his mother With his credo of never looking back this is the first time he s returned to Clarke s Flat since he left, so for the first time he s forced to confront many of the reasons why he left in the first place And it s not a comfortable outlook.There s much that s happened in his home town to him, to his family and to friends and The first of the Peter Clancy books from T.W Lawless, HOMECOUNTRY takes Clancy to exactly that home to the town where he grew up, in outback Queensland to bury his mother With his credo of never looking back this is the first time he s returned to Clarke s Flat since he left, so for the first time he s forced to confront many of the reasons why he left in the first place And it s not a comfortable outlook.There s much that s happened in his home town to him, to his family and to friends and people who are still in town There s questions around his own father s death, about this mother s actions after selling the farm and moving to town, and in particular, in what happened when he was a teenager, to his then girlfriend None of this paints anybody much in a particularly good light Especially Clancy who, perhaps because of that never looking back thing, has left some chaos in his wake and seems particularly put out that he s going to have to sort some stuff out Now.Having read the second book in the series first, Clancy does become aengaging character than he might be for anyone coming to HOMECOUNTRY first up Here he could come across as too blas about something that caused so much damage Although he does eventually twig and try to make reparations He also does approach a lot of things with a hefty dose of cynicism as you d fully expect from anybody who could work for The Truth And the man has exactly the taste in music you d expect from somebody born in his era Hendix, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple fan and all.Dryly humorous throughout, with occasional bursts of flat out funny, Clancy is not all bad, and his mother wasn t completely wrong to do what she did, and the past is sometimes a tricky place to navigate As a debut novel, HOMECOUNTRY is well written, with strong storytelling, particularly when you consider that the central character is just a bit ambiguous If I d read this as a debut there s certainly enough to make me look for the rest of the series The second book is THORNYDEVILS, the third BLURLINES.Worth a look and not just for those of us who grew up in the bush, remember those bands, remember The Truth, and have a feel for what it s like to be from small town 1980 s and be desperate to be anywhere else.http www.austcrimefiction.org revie

    I m not a big thriller fan but I loved it The characters are engaging, if sometimes duplicitous They are real and flawed, and Lawless makes no apology about them His style is direct, often graphic, frequently laced with a touch of humour The book can be confronting at times He s clearly no fan of mindless authoritarianism, and he explodes the idyll of life in a country town The story is relevant and it works

    A page turner and great intro into characters at the start of the book Investigations into the past don t truly start until halfway through the book but it s entertaining from first page to last Look forward to the next Peter Clancy story Really good first book TW Lawless

    Peter couldn t remember why he had been in a fight Maybe he d been an innocent non combatant It would also explain the blood on his shirt when he had woken up on the couch this morning, face down in a pizza Despite having over a decade s experience if excessive drinking, he still hadn t cured the after effects, which was why he always planned his hangovers for the weekends During the week he stuck religiously to his nightly limit of twelve cans of VB.Homecountry is a fast paced, fairly capti Peter couldn t remember why he had been in a fight Maybe he d been an innocent non combatant It would also explain the blood on his shirt when he had woken up on the couch this morning, face down in a pizza Despite having over a decade s experience if excessive drinking, he still hadn t cured the after effects, which was why he always planned his hangovers for the weekends During the week he stuck religiously to his nightly limit of twelve cans of VB.Homecountry is a fast paced, fairly captivating mystery crime novel, with colorful language and short chapters that are easy to grasp Overall, it was a satisfying read, because I didn t get bored sometimes, keeping the book short is the best way to do it , I found some bits of good humor, I got a glimpse of Australia and I experienced some really gritting moments Yet, the ending felt rushed, there was no direct confrontation between the hero and the bad guy the latter had too easy an ending and there was a bit too much violence for my taste The hero also starts to weep several times towards the end, which was odd, seeing that he didn t seem to give a damn until then what a sook.Peter Clancy s character is not easy to like he is a hard drinking journalist, writes scandal articles for a tabloid, treats his girlfriend like a disposable object After his mother dies he hasn t seen her for 10 years , he goes back to Clarkes Flat, which he was so eager to leave behind He finds a town still hostile towards Aboriginals, where Max, the chief policeman, maintains order by applying the bush law and using Peter s cousin as a spy Most human beings are like cattle They have to be led They have to be directed. Peter is regarded as an outsider, despite the fact that his family helped develop this part of Australia Soon, things from his past come to haunt him his father s death, the rocky relationship with his mother, the girlfriend that was raped because of his cowardice, the lousy friends that got him into trouble Moreover, he finds out that two distant deaths, that were labeled as suicides at the time, could be in fact murders Peter has to decide whether to flee back to his chaotic life in Melbourne or stay in Clarkes Flat to investigate and fight for the truth I ve learned some new words in the process, like VB Victoria Bitter, one of the highest selling beers in Australia , Vegemite I want to taste that, I m so curious Or Marmite , derro hobo, bum , ghost gum evergreen tree species , porkpie hat huh it seems to resemble a pork pie dish and it was made famous by Buster Keaton , sook cry baby , wowser killjoy, prude, puritan.All in all, it was an enjoyable experience and I hope that T.W Lawless will come out with better and better novels over time I ve won this novel in the First Reads giveaway, yay
