Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

It's been a peaceful Christmas for Paul Hirschhausen, the only cop in Tiverton. A grass fire, a stolen ute, the usual welfare checks. The big event: Brenda Flann driving her Falcon into the front bar of the pub.

Then Hirsch is called to a strange, vicious incident in Kitchener Street. And Sydney police ask him to lookin on a family living on a back road outside town.

Suddenly it doesn't look like a season of goodwill at all.
