A Rowland Sinclair Mystery Short-listed for Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book Sulari Gentill – Winner of Davitt Award for Best Adult Crime Fiction 2012 In 1930s Australia, the Sinclair name is respectable and influential, yet the youngest son Rowland – an artist – has a talent for scandal. Even with the unemployed lining the streets, Rowland lives in a sheltered world... of wealth, culture and impeccable tailoring with the family fortune indulging his artistic passions and friends... a poet, a painter and a brazen sculptress. Mounting political tensions fuelled by the Great Depression take Australia to the brink of revolution. While Rowland is an uncommon man, his name is not. He shares it with an uncle, an aging playboy. When the elder man is murdered, Rowland is stricken with grief and plagued by question. Foremost: why would anyone want to kill the old man? The stakes are high, as Rowland and his friends go undercover in the New Guard, a dangerous political group intent on wrestling control of the country from its current leadership. As danger looms and Rowland and his friends become targets of the fascist legion, will they be able to solve the mystery of his uncle’s murder? Will they be able to protect the country from political upheaval? Gentill skilfully weaves her narratives around real historical events and figures with razor-sharp humour and incredible imagination. Her debut novel delights the reader and excites them with richly drawn characters and impeccable timing.

Murder and Intrigue When High Society Meets the High Seas – A Gripping Historical Mystery The Second Book of the Acclaimed Rowland Sinclair Mysteries, the Historical Crime Series The luxury liner, RMS Aquitania, embodies all that is gracious and refined, in a world gripped crisis and doubt. But elegant atmosphere on board is charged with tension. Civility remains... but how long will the peace hold when people start to die? After months abroad, Rowland Sinclair and his companions begin their journey home on the ship. The heroes dine with a suffragette, a Bishop and a retired World Prophet. The Church encounters less orthodox religion in the Aquitania’s chandeliered ballroom, where men of God rub shoulders with mystics in dinner suits. Gentill’s razor-sharp voice draws these wonderfully diverse characters, and as the pressure rises, so too does a foreboding sense of intrigue. As the bodies pile up, and Rowland unwittingly finds himself at the centre of it all again, can he unravel the mystery and stop these heinous crimes before he and his friends become victims themselves? Gentill captures the readers interest and imagination from the first page in this superbly narrated and observed novel. A highly amusing adventure amidst the horrors of death and the bizarre nature of 1930s society.

Shanghai, 1935. Rowland Sinclair arrives from Sydney, Australia, to represent his brother at international wool negotiations. A novice to global commerce, Rowland is under strict instructions to keep a low profile... but that soon becomes next to impossible. A beautiful Russian taxi girl--who once claimed to be the Princess Anastasia and who danced in Rowland's arms the night before--is found slain in his suite. It's no surprise that suspicion falls on him. Rowland must seek answers in a foreign city determined to ruin him, and where he has very few people on his side--except his bohemian housemates, who always have his back.

Words of peace are sometimes the most dangerous language of all When Rowland Sinclair offers to fly internationally renowned Czech novelist and peace advocate Egon Kisch to Melbourne to kick off a speaking tour, he has no clue that the government has charged the Attorney General with preventing Kisch from stepping foot on Australian soil. Then Jim Kelly, a known Communist, is ruthlessly murdered on the Parliament House steps. It's soon evident that an extreme fascist group is also intent on keeping Kisch's words from ever reaching their countrymen's ears—even if they have to kill him, or anyone helping him gain entry. Rowland, meanwhile, reconnects with his first love, who has returned after years abroad and seeks him out. When the two are photographed in flagrante delicto by reporters, Rowland fears he has ruined her reputation, and proposes marriage—despite the fact that his heart belongs to someone else... Blending historical facts and figures with rollicking adventure, A Dangerous Language shows how far fanatics are willing to go to ensure that their side of the story is the only story people hear.

Australian and New Zealand crime and thriller writing - collectively referred to as Southern Cross Crime - is booming globally, with antipodean authors regularly featuring on awards and bestseller lists, such as Eleanor Catton's Booker Prize winning The Luminaries and Jane Harper's big commercial hit, The Dry, winner of the CWA Gold Dagger Award. Hailing from two sparsely populated nations on the far edge of the former Empire - neighbours that are siblings in spirit, vastly different in landscape - Australian and New Zealand crime writers offer readers a blend of exotic and familiar, seasoned by distinctive senses of place, outlook, and humour, and roots that trace to the earliest days of our genre. Southern Cross Crime is the first comprehensive guide to modern crime writing from "Down Under". From coastal cities to the outback, leading critic Craig Sisterson showcases key titles from over 250 storytellers, plus screen dramas ranging from Mystery Road to Top of the Lake. Fascinating insights are added through in-depth interviews with some of the prime suspects who paved the way or instigated the global boom, including Michael Robotham, Paul Cleave, Emma Viskic, Paul Thomas, Candice Fox, and Garry Disher. 'Southern Cross Crime is informative, knowledgeable, wide ranging. If you have any ideas about writing a crime novel you need to read it, if you enjoy reading crime novels, you need to read it, if you simply love reading, you need to read it. This is not a dry as dust tome - the writer's encyclopaedic knowledge is carried lightly... a box of the finest literary chocolates' - Renée Taylor, 2018 recipient of the Prime Minister's Award for Literary Achievement in Fiction 'A valuable and illuminative resource for crime fiction fans everywhere' - Book'd Out

The captivating thriller Dean Koontz calls "pure delight, a swift yet psychologically complex read." If you get lost in a book, be sure you can find your way back... Madeleine d'Leon doesn't know where Edward came from. He is simply a character in her next book. But as she writes, he becomes all she can think about. His charm, his dark hair, his pen scratching out his latest literary novel... Edward McGinnity can't get Madeleine out of his mind softly smiling, infectiously enthusiastic, and perfectly damaged. She will be the ideal heroine for his next book. But who is the author and who is the creation? And as the lines start to blur, who is affected when a killer finally takes flesh? After She Wrote Him is a wildly inventive twist on the murder mystery that takes readers on a journey filled with passion, obsession, and the emptiness left behind when the real world starts to fall away.

Shortlisted for the Davitt Award for Best Adult Crime Fiction for 2013 "The combination of famous historical figures, detailed descriptions of a troubling time, and plenty of action makes for a tale as rousing as it is relevant." —Kirkus Reviews It's 1933. No less than Europe, Britain, or America, Australia contends with the Left, mostly Communists but also Socialists, and a rising Right, Fascists. Rowland Sinclair, bohemian younger son of the wealthy, influential, conservative clan headed by his powerful brother, Wilfred, has tangled with New South Wales' Right before. It did not go well. New Guard leader Eric Campbell, the man who would be Australia's Führer, is currently in Britain "consorting with Sir Oswald Mosley," the leading British Fascist, making connections over cocktails in aid of bringing European Fascism to Australia. Campbell will soon be moving on to Germany to meet members of the Reichstag and, he hopes, Hitler. The Australian way of life is not undefended. Old enemies have united to undermine Campbell's ambitions. Senator Charles Hardy, now a leading member of this unofficial Old Guard, brings Rowly a proposal. Their man in Munich, Peter Bothwell, who was to keep an eye on Campbell, has been killed. Rowly's mission is to investigate Bothwell's death and, while at it, do his best to derail Campbell. The Old Guard already has one Blanshard in place, serving as Campbell's interpreter, but he needs backup. Hardy threatens to appeal to Wil to go if Rowly refuses. So he agrees. Making the trip by legs in famous airman Sir Charles Kingsford Smith's plane is a plus. Another is that his unconventional housemates, the poet (Jewish), the painter (Communist), and the sculptress (unpredictable), insist on coming along to watch his back. It's not your expected spy ring. Their cover, aside from false passports, is they are buying art. Lots of Dada art—at the Old Guard's expense. In Munich the friends pursue their joint missions while growing increasingly horrified at the goose-stepping euphoria, cruel acts, and book burnings of the rising Nazi movement. Yet they meet decent Germans like the tailor Alois Richter who's pursuing contracts for Nazi uniforms against rival Hugo Boss, and brave Albert Göring, Hermann's younger brother. And two besotted women: Unity Mitford, who stakes out the Osteria Bavaria every day at eleven a.m. intent on meeting her idol Hitler; and a photographer called Eva Braun, a rather ordinary young woman who's besotted with a man she calls Mr. Wolf. This cleverly plotted, utterly convincing story in which an amateur agent thrust into a world of spies, murderers, and despotic madmen where he can trust no one but his three mates, is the 4th in the fascinating Rowland Sinclair Mysteries.
