First book from local first time crime fiction author, Rick Dunlop Cases: The Maclay Murder and other Mysteries arrived for review recently.
From the Blurb:
Ex DI RIck Dunlop is forced to write his memoir for his guidance counsellor after a certain case for the Victorian Police finds him "mentally unfit for active duty" and turns him into a social outcast. Ten months on, he has managed to find gainful employment with Jeff, another cast-off from the ranks of the esteemed men in blue, and now proprietor of Fitzroy Field Investigations.
"So, what do you think of this?" Jeff asked me from behind his paper.
"What?" I answered irritably. For an hour I had been sitting in his office, which he continued reading, seemingly totally oblivious to my presence.
