Alan Carter’s wonderful character Cato Kwong makes a welcome return in Bad Seed, the third in his series of crime thrillers based in WA. Cato Kwong’s character has further developed and readers will sense a more assured voice in Bad Seed where we meet murky underworld businessmen in Shanghai, psychopathic misfits in Augusta, and the usual mishmash of likeable rogues and characters amongst Cato’s police colleagues and the criminal world. As ever, the pace is heart racing and there’s plenty of heart-in-mouth confrontation between good and bad forces. True to Carter’s style, there are also some brilliant one-liners. A great read!
