The Siren's Sting

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Thriller

She was not an action woman: she could not run very fast; she favoured ballet slippers over combat boots, never swore and still suffered from nightmares; she did not enjoy confrontation of any kind. She was reluctant to face risk, and it was a quality that made her very good at her job. Her art lay in her ability to pass unnoticed, to slip in and out of the cracks of life, to be quietly invisible.

JF Was Here

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

AIDS is killing John Freeman. But before he dies he wants to understand himself - both as victim and killer. From the aptly decaying grandeur of the Hydro Majestic Hotel JF recalls his adult life, lived largely in Papua New Guinea, and his great love, handsome, vital Francis Tapukai. Memories of his grandmother also unfold. An eccentric golf champion, she too paid dearly for the right to be her own person. Rarely has contemporary fiction confronted so directly male passion and sexuality, or explored with such depth the complexity of living outside the boundaries of public approval.
