About The Dunbar Case

Cliff Hardy is leaving the mean streets of Sydney for Newcastle, investigating what a famous 19th century shipwreck has to do with a multi-million dollar heist with a cast of characters that shouldn’t be trusted.

A search for lost documents; a Newcastle criminal family tearing itself apart; an undercover cop playing both sides; an alluring but fiercely ambitious female journalist – Cliff certainly has his hands full.  The first person Hardy interviews is shot dead and the body count mounts as he pushes closer to the truth about the people, the documents and the loot.  What started as an almost academic exercise for Cliff explodes into a here-and-now power struggle between criminals, police, lovers and unseen forces.
