Minotaur description

In his latest book, Minotaur, Peter Goldsworthy sets himself something of a challenge when he makes his compelling protagonist, the congenial but complicated cop, Sergeant Rick Zadow, blind, reliant on dog Scout and the virtual Siri to get around the streets of Adelaide. He rises to it admirably. On the surface a witty and highly entertaining thriller, the violent, embittered “Zads” also offers a fascinating character study, and, using his blindness, especially to his own failings, as a recurring metaphor, an examination of the murky depths of the human psyche.
