A rather locally looking book with a number of references to Ballarat, which seems to mean that the author is about an hour from Ballarat on one side, and I'm about an hour the other. And then there's the action set around the Malthouse, a place I remember with considerable fondness during the MWF.

From the Blurb:

What happens when the keynote at an important arts festival is found dead? Join Brendan O’Leary who’s trying hard to keep up with all that’s changing in his life and Ange Micelli, fourth daughter of Italian migrants, who’s fit, fiery and ready to go. Together they make a formidable team in this fast-moving thriller that uncovers much more than just the murderer.

Welcome to modern Melbourne, UNESCO City of Literature, home to arts festivals galore as well as the internationally famous Melbourne Cup horse race. But the Imagine Festival, held in late August, has more surprises in store than the Festival Director planned when he discovers Deborah Dangerfield's lifeless body upstairs at the Malthouse Theatre. She was to be the day’s keynote speaker.

Political intrigue, society gossip and secret adoption are all woven together to produce a solid plot line.
