More Information About Blood Moon by Garry Disher

About Blood Moon (from the publisher): Inspector Hal Challis and co-worker Sergeant Ellen Destry are enjoying their new romantic relationship when a call comes in to investigate the brutal beating of the chaplain of a prestigious school. The victim, it turns out, is not merely a chaplain, but also the head of a fundamentalist church, and his brother runs a racist blog. Before Challis can solve this case, more crimes come his way. A local woman turns up dead. Could her semmingly distressed husband actually be guilty, or was it the woman's job, punishing land use violations, that got her killed? And amid hordes of vacationing high school seniors, a young man is left drugged and naked on the beach. Could this be punishment for a previous crime? Challis and his team must juggle all these crimes and their own personal problems.
