The Broken Shore by Peter Temple

The Broken Shore begins with Melbourne detective Joe Cashin reassigned to his hometown on the south Australia coast to recover from injuries suffered in the line of duty. Cashin isn't exactly welcomed by the small town police force. When a wealthy man is murdered in his home, three local aboriginal teenagers are charged with the crime. Suspecting that there's more to the story, Cashin delves deeper against the orders of his superiors. What he uncovers is divisions in the town that reflect Australia as a whole, concerning both race and wealth, as well as deeply buried secrets that explode to the surface. Peter Temple's novel has received positive reviews as well as the Colin Roderick Award for Australian writing and the Ned Kelly Award. The Washington Post says, "Having read the new novels of Michael Connelly and Martin Cruz Smith, I have to say that Temple belongs in their company. Australia is a long way off, but this bloke is world-class."
