Carter hat einen wirklich interessanten (Anti-)Helden geschaffen: Philipp "Cato" Kwong ist Polizist aus Leidenschaft. Als "intellektueller Polizist" scheint er fon seinen Kolleginnen und Chefs nicht immer so ganz ernst genommen zu werden. Er denkt gerne und lange nach und stellt seine persönliche Moral bzw. sein Rechtsempfinden auch schon 'mal über Korpsgeist und Ansagen vom Chef dabei und kommt schließlich (meist unter Inkaufnahme von mancherlei Blessuren) immer auf die richtige Spur. Dabei ist der roman nicht langweilig, sondern spannend, mit genügend actionreichen Szenen und manchen Überraschungen.
Das Australische Englisch ist nicht immer ganz "easy", aber man kann es dennoch relativ gut verstehen.
Für mich durchaus eine neue Größe in der Szene.

The story is coherent, original and holds your attention. An improvement on prime cut because the scene changes are better organised.

HASH(0x8e963ca8) von 5 Sternen A tense and complicated plot, conflicted characters, leavened just enough by dark humour. 29. Dezember 2013
Von James - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A complex plot, with a number threads woven together credibly. A range of variously conflicted characters populate this modern day version of a morality play. The main character is a delight, but cleverly placed in the narrative so that other characters get to add layers and nuances of the story. The plot is leavened just enough with some whimsy and dark humour.

The setting is well developed and provides a suitable canvas for the narrative.

HASH(0x8f4b069c) von 5 Sternen Another great story but, again, a poorly formatted Kindle book 7. Juni 2015
Von Kathy S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I loved this second book in this series--even better than the first. Complex characters and plot, set in Australia, good storytelling . . .

The only problem, once again, was the formatting of the Kindle version. In the first book, there were wide spaces in between each line of dialogue or paragraph. It was the same amount of wide space as that you find in between changes of scene within a chapter. It was very confusing and really slowed down the reading pace. This second book has the opposite problem; with a few exceptions, there are no spaces between any lines, including when space is needed between changes of scene within a chapter. So when there's a change of scene beginning with dialogue, it's very confusing.

I will read the next book in the series because I've enjoyed the first two, but this formatting problem is irritating.

Carter's first novel featuring Cato (obvious connection for the nickname) Kwong, PRIME CUT, had him exiled to the Stock Squad in the back blocks of regional WA, doing penance. GETTING WARMER has him back in Perth, just as things weather-wise and crime-wise start to heat up. Starting out with the rather bizarre search for the body of a teenage girl, the supposed perpetrator of that crime being one from the nastier end of the psycho range, it's hard to see how anyone's going to get all that fussed when he shows up dead on the floor of the jail kitchens.

Except the two motorcycle club members who were seen on CCT cameras beating him to a pulp. Their mates aren't best pleased that they've been accused of murder when all it was supposed to be was a kicking. Nothing about sharpened toothbrushes in the eye.

Meanwhile Kwong nemesis from the earlier novel Lara Sumich has her own "issues" when she's on hand to discover a body in a nightclub toilet. Not 'fessing up that she knows the identity of the dead man long before it's worked out, not 'fessing up that she has quite a bit of history with the dead man makes her role in the investigation just a little fraught. Mind you, the whole team is under a lot more pressure once it turns out that dead Santo Rosetti is actually an undercover cop, very in with one side of the rapidly escalating turf wars between crime gangs.

It's got to be nearly impossible to not like Cato Kwong. Built into a narrative that's assured and tense, without ever tipping over into lunacy, Kwong is as entertaining and funny as the storylines could possibly allow. The sense of gallows humour, or the bizarre and the flat out weird isn't cartoonish at all, but it is definitely witty, and clever and very real to read.

There's good balance here between the personal and the investigation, and the physical invincibility of our hero and his fallibilities. He takes the punches, they hurt like hell and he gets on with it. He's real as a cop, real as a friend and real as a father struggling to hold onto a close connection with his young son, despite a separation. He's also not playing a lone hand in the books, with his working relationship with Sumich as tricky as it's always been, just as she's as tricky as she's always been.

It's not just bikies that are causing problems as well, there's also a young African hitman and his unexpected controller, and a yapping dog that really deserves a mention in the credits.

Carter's quite the master at juggling Kwong juggling his own varied and slightly crazy balls in air. As good a debut as PRIME CUT was, GETTING WARMER is an even better second book - something that often doesn't seem to be easy to nail. Here it's not just nailed, it's been counter-sunk, sanded, lacquered and laid out for everyone to admire.

I loved this book and enjoy the Cato Kwong series, I am looking forward to reading more of them. It is good to read a typical Aussie novel with Aussie humour, surprisingly it is written by an imported pom. Keep writing Alan Carter!

Not a usual murder mystery reader but glad i purchased this one - the characterisation was deft, unexpectedly nuanced story line with very nice asides about Perth, and the effects of the mining 'boom'.
