The last few weeks have been very busy giving talks around Nelson to community groups…
Today a review arrived and it was wonderful to read the praise the book has got. The magical words for me were “superbly written”... at the end of the day, these are the two words that matter the most to me. I feel validated as a writer and inspired to get on with the sequel.

If you’re looking for a good read from a Kiwi-born writer, then this book is worth checking out. Situated in Melbourne, the storyline follows a Kiwi detective and her Aboriginal constable sidekick, first coming together as they investigate a body found in a swampy marsh on the outskirts of the city.
The storyline moves through numerous different scenes and themes as they hunt for the killer. So, while what I’ve described so far may probably on the face of it not seem much different to almost every other hunt-for-the-killer book, this one, thanks to the superb writing, lifts it far above other counterparts. Buy it, hire it, whatever, but my suggestion is to read it. This, in my opinion, is a book deserving of an award.
