sjbrown is the pen-name of Tasmanian author Stephen Brown. A semi-retired teacher of literature and sport he now devotes the greater part of his energies to the Detective Inspector Mahoney series. Having worked and travelled overseas he is now happily resident in a state (the place) enjoying a resurgence in reputation and is settled in a state (the condition) of exhausted contentment. His intention is to keep writing until he drops off the twig (hoping it's not too soon as he's only 52) because he knows it is something he feels inspired when doing and he hopes readers will enjoy his depiction of characters under pressure.
2nd book in the DI John Mahoney series, set in Tasmania.
From the Blurb:
Tasmania is in trouble.
While mainland Australia surges through the backwash of the GFC the island state is struggling. Political infighting, bureaucratic ineptitude and a lack of investment have curtailed progress. Too many people are lodging on ‘Struggle Street’.
