Crime Fiction

A top executive dies suddenly.

An accident?

A murder?

An inside job?

Hundreds of suited suspects in one city office.

Detective Sergeant Brian Shaw is recalled from Yorke Peninsula.

From sleepy country town to throbbing city throngs, clashing personalities, old scores to be settled, frustrated ambitions, jealousies, and something new: female tellers.

A hotbed of suspicions from managing director to tea lady.

And who started the rumour that one of the tellers may be involved?

Why? Who?

Know why and you may know who!

Keeping up with the 2015 Ned Kelly Submissions - Best First Crime

This year I've promised myself a red hot go at reading the entire submissions list for all 3 of the Ned Kelly Categories. Preferably before the 2016 Submissions List is released although there are days when I think I might have bitten off more than I can possibly chew. Still - getting there :)

Next up Best First Crime - which is looking better in terms of keeping up with the submitted books.
