Harry Kenmare

Created by A. B. Patterson

“This is going to go down better than a stripper and a sack of cash at a Cabinet meeting.”
— Harry in Harry’s World

 The one word that keeps coming up in the blurbs about Sydney, Australia private eye HARRY KENMARE is “prehistoric.”

And to be honest, he does seem rather dinosaur-like —  a drinking, smoking behemoth of busted dreams rumbling through a hostile and unjust world he’s no longer sure he belongs in, and giving us the play by play as he goes. But for those looking for something ballsy and literate, in the Chandler/Bruen vein (but with a extra of cheekiness on the side), this one might do the trick.

The author, A. B. Patterson, was born in Sydney, and grew up in England and France, before returning to Australia, where he went into law enforcement. He was a Detective Sergeant in the WA Police, working in paedophilia and vice, and later later served as Chief Investigator with the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption. He now lives in Sydney and loves to holiday in France.
