Australian Noir – Dark Story Meets Morality Tale?

Australian Noir – Dark Story Meets Morality Tale?

Meet three authors who take undeniably Australian characters on a moral journey where not everyone ends up the better for it. Join Janice Simpson, Fiona Capp and Jock Serong as they explore strong writing that bends genre – not crime fiction or literature as we’ve known it.

Janice SimpsonMurder in Mt Martha – “Murder in Mt Martha is a page-turner, as well as a psychological exploration of what makes a murderer. Janice’s readers are gripped by the way the story unfolds in two eras, providing insight into how lives were lived more than half a century ago, as well as in modern-day Australia.” – The Peninsula Star.

Jock Serong –  The Rules of Backyard Cricket – ‘The Rules of Backyard Cricket by Jock Serong, while classified as ‘crime’, is a compelling literary novel dissecting toxic sporting culture and its fallout.’ Paddy O’Reilly, Australian Book Review, 2016 Books of the Year

Fiona CappTo Know My Crime – A nail-biting and compelling story of risk, blackmail and the corrosive nature of guilt – and how we all have to live with the consequences of our actions.

‘Utterly compelling’ The Australian
