The second Nicholas Troy book from Michael Duffy was released originally in January.  This looks like a bit of a doorstopper of a book, but it's very quick to read.  Follows on very closely from the action in THE TOWER, although I suspect you could read them out of order if you wanted to.

Q & A with Michael Duffy about THE TOWER

Before the questions and Michael's excellent answers, a quick note of thanks for his responses. 

AUSTCRIME:  The implication of a large, unfinished tower as a sort of a "blight on the landscape" was interesting.  In one way you've got a locked room mystery, in another it's a blank canvas.  Did you have something in particular in mind when you came up with the concept of The Tower?

It's always very pleasing to see a new local author popup on the shelves of the local bookshops, and Michael Duffy will be a name known already to many newspaper readers and listeners to Radio National.  It was particularly pleasing to find a previously unknown (to me at least) connection to The Saints'.  To hear The Tower's theme, The Saints' recording of Sydney crime song 'Water and Wine', go to http://www.cityofsharks.com
