(PRWEB) February 13, 2015 -- Brian Beauchamp marks his debut in the world of literature with “Desert Waste” (published by Xlibris AU). This brilliantly orchestrated crime thriller follows a newly formed policing body as it delves into its first murder case, a search that leads to a convoluted web of outlaw biker gangs, religious cults and illegal drugs.

The novel opens in the arid landscape of the Simpson Desert where a lone surveyor stumbles upon a dying man who utters one word before passing away. Officers from various Australian forces are recruited to join a new policing body tasked with cracking the strange case. But what started out as a task of identifying the dead man quickly unfurls into a more complex and possibly deadly mission as the investigators find themselves pitted against outlaws, religious cultists and drug traffickers.

Beauchamp, the gripping narrator, takes readers on a rollercoaster ride from labyrinthine cities to rural towns to the Australian Outback. The debut author shares that he drew inspiration from his experiences as a police officer. The resulting work is as believable as it is gritty and compelling. “Desert Waste” is a stunning first novel that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
