The third in the Charlie Berlin series, which has been a) much anticipated and b) a one weekend read.
From the Blurb:
It's 1967, the summer of love, and in swinging Melbourne Detective Sergeant Charlie Berlin has been hauled out of exile in the Fraud Squad to investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl, the daughter of a powerful and politically connected property developer. As Berlin's inquiries uncover more missing girls he gets an uneasy feeling he may be dealing with the city's first serial killer.
Geoffrey McGeachin's Charlie Berlin novels, The Diggers Rest Hotel and Blackwattle Creek, have just been re-issued by Penguin Australia with evocative new covers featuring shiny gold medallions indicating that each of the titles has won a Ned Kelly Award for Best Fiction. The third Berlin story, St Kilda Blues, will be published by Penguin in June.
