Man at the Window

Robert Jeffreys

Man at the Window is the first book in the Detective Cardilini series: an atmospheric and unforgettable crime novel with a burning moral dilemma at its heart

A cop needs to know what a child wants to forget

When a boarding school master at an exclusive boys' school is shot dead, it is deemed accidental. A lazy and usually drunk detective is sent to write up the report. Cardilini unexpectedly does not cooperate, as he becomes riled by the privileged arrogance of those at the school. He used to have instincts. Perhaps he should follow them now . . .

With no real evidence he declares the shooting a murder and puts himself on a collision course with the powerful and elite of Perth. As he peels back layers, the school's dark secrets begin to emerge. But is his dogged pursuit of justice helpful or harmful to those most affected by the man's death?

Man at the Window is the first book in the Detective Cardilini series: an atmospheric and unforgettable crime novel with a burning moral dilemma at its heart.
