Tell Me Why

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

Picturesque Daylesford has a darker side.

Melbourne writer Georgie Harvey heads to the mineral springs region of central Victoria to look for a missing farmer.

There she uncovers links between the woman's disappearance and her dangerous preoccupation with the unsolved mystery surrounding her husband.

Maverick cop and solo dad John Franklin is working a case that’s a step up from Daylesford’s usual soft crime; a poison-pen writer whose targets are single mothers.

Georgie’s investigation stirs up long buried secrets and she attracts enemies.

Author Information
Wallace, Sandi

Sandi is a crime writing personal trainer who lives in the Dandenong Ranges outside Melbourne.

Sandi wrote her first book at the age of six and started inventing songs (in the shower) around then too.

A steady diet, also from an early age, of all types of mysteries led to a grown-up addiction to crime fiction in film and print; and to dreams of becoming a crime writer.

The Real Chopper

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
True Crime

Criminal, murderer, raconteur, author . . . mythmaker?

Mark Brandon 'Chopper' Read is undoubtedly Australia's best-known criminal. Author of many bestselling books about the underworld he inhabited, and subject of a smash-hit film, his story has become part of the country's culture. And Read certainly knew how to spin a yarn.

Adam Shand – bestselling author of Big Shots: Carl Williams and the Gangland Murders – disentangles the persona of 'Chopper' from Mark Read, the man. Chopper took over Read's life, made him famous but then refused to let him go.
