Author of the acclaimed crime expose, Huckstepp, John Dale Skilfully turns his pen to an intriguing blend of mystery, travel and memoir. Stunningly imagined, Dale re-creates the life and death of his grandfather. At 7a.m. on 16 May 1942 forty-year-old Harvey Malcolm was found in the front seat of his Chevrolet parked outside a young woman's house in Launceston with a bullet wound in his left temple and a .22 calibre rifle lying across his knees. Was it murder or suicide? Sixty-two years later his grandson returns to Tasmania to investigate the unsolved death. What he discovers is a remarkable story. Set in Hobart, New Orleans and New York during the late 1930s, Wild Life is a rich and satisfying blend of mystery, travel and memoir.
