My Name is Revenge

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Thriller

My Name Is Revenge is in two parts. There is a novella, and an essay reflecting on the historic events that inspired that novella, and meditating also on how history can inform fiction. In the essay the writer says she hopes everything she writes will ‘arouse curiosity’. Both the novella and the essay do just that, and also much, much more. Both pieces are informed by a passion to express the haunting of almost unimaginable historical crimes, and the tragic shapes that vengeance for those crimes can take.

Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

A funny Australian mystery about Adelaide and football and fishing and voodoo and wives.

When down-at-heel Adelaide private detective Bruce Bilger accepts a curious but seemingly trivial case from a local Australian Rules football club, the Centralian Galahs, he has no inkling of the bizarre and perilous circumstances into which he is about to be plunged.

Will his survival instinct and street wisdom make up for his lack of social graces, and will his curiosity ultimately kill him or break the case?
