Book 1, Archer and Bennett

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


WINNER of the 2014 Ned Kelly Award for Best Debut Crime Novel. A dark, compelling and original thriller that will have you spellbound from its atmospheric opening pages to its shocking climax.

Hades Archer surrounds himself with the things others leave behind. Their trash becomes the twisted sculptures that line his junkyard. The bodies they want disposed of become his problem - for a fee.

Then one night a man arrives on his doorstep, clutching a small bundle that he wants 'lost'. And Hades makes a decision that will change everything...

Twenty years later, homicide detective Frank Bennett feels like the luckiest man on the force when he meets his new partner, the dark and beautiful Eden Archer. But there's something strange about Eden and her brother, Eric. Something he can't quite put his finger on.

At first, as they race to catch a very different kind of serial killer, his partner's sharp instincts come in handy. But soon Frank's wondering if she's as dangerous as the man they hunt.

'One of the stand out crime thrillers of the last few years' The Chronicle

'The arrival of an important new voice in crime fiction . . . breath-taking' Sydney Morning Herald

Look out too for the sequel, Eden, which won the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Novel of 2015, only the second time an author has won these awards back to back.

From Publishers Weekly

15 December 2014 – Horrors abound in Australian author Fox's first novel, a gritty police procedural set in Sydney. Hades Archer, the crime lord of the Utulla dump, disposes of the waste left over from human lives and also creates artwork from "warped scraps of metal and pieces of discarded machinery." Hades once rescued two children, Eden and Eric, from a botched kidnapping and raised them to become police homicide detectives: Eden is dangerously intuitive and creative, Eric lethally wild. Eden and her new partner, tough cop Frank Bennett, track a serial killer who kills for body parts he can sell to dying patients desperate for a transplant. In this twisted noir world, love goes as wrong as it can go, as shown in Hades's relationship with the children he saved, and Bennett's relationship with a victim who escaped her captor's chop shop. Readers will look forward to the sequel set in this not-for-the-squeamish nightmare world down under.
