Reminiscence - Bill Green, 2/5/1940 - 15/8/2011

About 3 years ago Adam and I were wandering around Victoria looking for where we wanted to live, having decided after 20 years that life in the Dandenongs was no longer for us.

One cold, damp, miserable day we headed for the Central Goldfields.  I'll be honest.  This was not the part of the world I was particularly keen to move to.  Growing up outside Ballarat, been there, done that, burnt the t-shirt many many years before.

A man dies after being dunked in a vat of toxic chemicals. A ship explodes in Port Phillip Bay, leaving a poisonous fallout. A pall of black smoke hangs over Melbourne's western suburbs as Jack Speerman begins his investigations into a cover up of lethal proportions. As Jack digs deeper, he unearths everything from crooked horse racing and money laundering on the trail of an illicit trade in chemical weapons, made right in Melbourne's own backyard. The stakes are high and the bodycount is even higher on a switchback ride of cross and double cross. Vengeance is a game no one can win.

Currently Reading - Compulsively Murdering Mao, Bill Green

Author Name: 

I've really enjoyed Bill's earlier books, so it was rather nice to find that with him living not so far away from where we've now moved to, his new books are now much easier to track down.

From the Blurb:

Compulsively Murdering Mao tracks the life of Phillip Coussens from his childhood in a small country town to his life as an investigative journalist and press secretary to the special Minister of State and China Trade, and his seduction by a CIA operative to deliver the fatal move on Chairman Mao.
