Garry Disher

Among his works are the seven books (and counting) in the popular Peninsula Crimes series, set on the Mornington Peninsula – where Disher himself lives.

Join Disher over lunch on the Mornington Peninsula at Montalto, as he discusses his extensive career – including his most recent book, Consolation – with host Emma Viskic.
