Blood Sunset by Jarad Henry

In the grip of a blistering Melbourne heat wave, a teenager is found dead in a St Kilda loading bay with a syringe hanging from his arm - is it an overdose or something more sinister? Assigned to the case, Detective Rubens McCauley soon he finds himself up against a secret network of paedophiles, child abusers and underage prostitutes . . . brilliantly plotted, this is witty, gritty crime writing (from the publisher).
Blood Sunset is one the shortlisted books on The Summer read list and it was an excellent read. Being set in Melbourne was great because I was familiar with the locations being described in the book and the character were all believable. Hopefully Jarad Henry continues to write more books like this one.

Rating - I give this 4/5
