Book Synopsis

A body in a billabong...

The bridegroom who disappears on his wedding day...

A murderer for all the right reasons...

The Australian thriller tradition is rich and some of the early examples almost completely unknown. This collection, selected by Stephen Knight, unearths nuggets of dynamic drama from our archives of crime writing - including writers like Arthur Conan Doyle, Ernest Favenc, Alan Michaelis, Barbara Baynton right up to Peter Corris and Jennifer Rowe.

Chosen from hundreds that once fascinated the large local reading public, the stories in Dead Witness reveal the intriguing variety of Australian mystery writing.
