It had taken months for Janine McQuarrie to succumb to her husband's pressure to have sex with strangers at suburban spouse-swapping parties. But after attending a few such events on the Mornington Peninsula, this Australian social psychologist rebels. And then, driving with her young daughter one day, she gets out of her car to ask directions and is shot and killed. The child escapes.
The case falls to Inspector Hal Challis of the Mornington Peninsula Police Force and his homicide squad. But the dead woman was Superintendent McQuarrie's daughter-in-law and the boss seems more interested in protecting his son than in finding her murderer. Challis and his squad have solved a lot of cases but this time the villain turns out to be someone they never would have suspected.

Review:

--"The Philadelphia Inquirer"

"[Disher's] police procedural novels rival American notables for crisp plotting and strong emphasis on character."
--"Baltimore Sun"

"Full of surprises . . . [Disher] has packed this police procedural with the kind of detail that enthralls fans of the genre and with deftly sketched characters . . . the coolly contemporary and finely grained "Snapshot "lives up to the immediacy of its title."

Praise for the Hal Challis series

"This series boasts careful, realistic casework, but there's enough darkness and ambiguity to suit John Harvey fans and a kind of which-way-is-up sense of the police force that recalls early James Ellroy. Moody, inventive, and extremely hard to put down."
--Booklist
