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 searches for solace in the Australian Outback, only to find herself caught up in the search for a missing police sergeant.
The Crocodile Beat is the thirteenth in the Greenland Missing Persons series of novellas and novels normally set in the harsh, unpredictable Arctic, rich in tradition, myth and culture.
The 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.
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! The Crocodile Beat was formerly Crocodile Beat, 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. And, yes, there is snow on the cover! Just for fun. 😉
Stay tuned for more updates!
