In Australia’s vast and desolate Northern Territory, Constable Petra ‘Piitalaat’ Jensen’s most southerly missing persons case might just be her last.
Forced to take some well-earned leave, Petra looks for solace in Australia’s Northern Territory, only to find herself caught up in the hunt for a cop killer.
Crocodile Beat is a stand-alone novel from the Greenland Missing Persons series of novellas and novels normally set in the harsh, unpredictable Arctic, rich in tradition, myth and culture.
Crocodile Beat continues the adventures of Constable Petra ‘Piitalaat’ Jensen, ably assisted by interesting characters, together with a few familiar faces making cameo appearances in the series.
All the Greenland Missing Persons stories are set prior to The Ice Star and Seven Graves, One Winter.

The sharp-eyed reader might recognise the title and know that I have tried to find the right fit for this story for some time. I think I’ve finally got it! Crocodile Beat was formerly Crocodile Beat (yep, same title), a novel I have started and pre-ordered at least three times. I love the story, the characters, but something was missing. It turned out that something was Petra!
I’ve ‘got it’ now, and know how to make it work.
Stay tuned for more updates!

Another Note (April 12, 2022 with edits on June 2, 2022)
I’m writing stuff alongside the novel – connected scenes and stories that work as teasers and additional material. Inflight Entertainment (see insert) is a scene plucked from the novel and turned into a short story – for promotion and fun. I’ll post it for FREE soon(ish), but until then here’s a teaser of the cover.
And, yep, as the cover suggests, the story takes place on the flight from Greenland to Denmark, early on in the beginning of Crocodile Beat. (Still working on how this fits it. Don’t think about it. It’s not ready yet. June 2, 2022.)
