Gangsters and sharks and the hunt for a serial killer in Depression-era Sydney. This fast-moving thriller combines love, lust and murder in the heat of an Australian summer. Take some ruthless gangsters, a fiendish murderer and an onslaught of man-eating sharks and you have a breathless page-turner that will make you think twice before booking that holiday Down Under.

The editing in Sharko is bad enough to make it tedious to read. The story is good until the end when it just stops and leaves the reader hanging to wonder what happened to all the secondary characters and the relationship of the two main characters. The ending chapter also seemed contrived and unreal.
