The Fallout, by Garry Disher
Clearly, I'm kind of liking the Disher Wyatt novels. The Fallout begins where Port Vila Blues ended. Wyatt's nephew, Ray, is introduced politely robbing banks, and being conned into financing a salvage operation. To finance the hunt for sunken treasure, he assists in the jail break of a killer and drags his uncle into an art theft. Nobody gets along, and many people are killed or battered. Suspended police officer Liz Redding throws spanners into the works here and there.
