Melbourne author, Angela Savage, has won 1st prize in Sisters in Crime Australia’s 18th Scarlet Stiletto Awards – the first crime writer with one or more crime novels under the belt to do so in the 18 years of the short-story competition.
When collectors' magazine editor Sally Meredith arrives in England from Australia, she anticipates a quiet time catching up with old friends and writing an article about a weekend conference on girls' school stories. However, she is soon caught up in a murder mystery that goes to the very heart of the collecting network. Nothing about the school story world remains unchanged by the end of Sally's visit, including Sally herself. A must for everyone who has ever wondered just how far they would go to possess that very rare title!
Just where is justice in Australia hiding? This brilliant new collection of true crime stories takes us into the Australian courts of the 1980s and '90s, back in time to the goldfields of the 1860s, and out to the island nation of Nauru in 2006 to explore how the scales of justice are unbalanced. This is a world in which the innocent still get locked up and the guilty too often go free.
Take a walk outside the law with some of Australia's best crime writers. Investigate the criminals who deal in murder, drugs and kidnapping; the cops who track them down; and the journalists who report their stories.
In Outside the Law 2 some of our best crime writers take you on a trip into the shadows of Australian society. You’ll meet crooks who just can’t help themselves; killers with twisted logic or hearts of darkness; and cops who daily walk the thinnest of lines to keep them at bay, and away from the rest of us.
