Category: 
Crime Fiction

When Quaker forger John Tawell disembarked in Sydney in 1815, none could have imagined that he would become the most historically 'influential' - albeit unwittingly - of Australia's 160,000 convict transportees. Tawell established Australia's first retail pharmacy and built the first Quaker meeting house in New South Wales. He became a rich convict nabob like his colleague Samuel Terry, the Botany Bay Rothschild, however unlike Terry he eventually decided to take his fortune home to England.
