BAD SYDNEY 2021 CRIME WRITERS FESTIVAL

STARTS TODAY - SESSIONS OVER FOUR DAYS!

Get ready to enjoy yourself with your favourite crime fiction, true crime and social justice writers, as well as some unusual suspects at the State Library of NSW.

This year, there are evening events on Thursday 2, Friday 3 and Saturday 4, as well as crime walks and an inaugural champagne and cozy crime afternoon tea.

BAD Sydney Crime Writers Festival will be live (and live-streamed) at the State Library of NSW from 2 to 5 December 2021. The four-day program is terrific and you can find it via the link below.

TREASURE & DIRT

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK - Ivan Lucic is rather surprisingly for a Sydney detective of his seniority, sent to investigate a murder in the opal mining town of Finnigans Gap. A miner was found crucified in his underground claim, but nothing is as straightforward as it seems. The town is verging on the edge of lawlessness, the young local policewoman charged with investigating the crime is out of her depth in more ways than one, there's a rather sinister messianic sect on the outskirts, and there is a billionaire mining magnate sniffing around. Lucic is hiding a few secrets himself...

Another wonderfully convoluted and satisfying rural noir novel from Chris Hammer, with a cast of colourful characters, moral dilemmas and twisty plotting. This is a standalone (though who knows? Maybe Lucic will turn up again, he certainly has more stories in him!) I think Hammer just gets better and better with each book he writes... Lindy Jones

THE SHADOW HOUSE

When single mother Alex flees her abusive relationship and moves with her teenage son and baby girl to a rural ecovillage, she thinks she's made the best decision of her life. Pine Ridge is idyllic: the off-grid lifestyle and remote location are perfect, and the community is welcoming - mostly. Charmed by its magnetic founder, Kit, and the natural beauty of the former farmland, Alex settles easily into her new home.

But her arrival at Pine Ridge disturbs barely submerged secrets, and she's shaken by a series of eerily familiar events that seem to be connected to the abandoned farmhouse on the hill. Alex realises that, in escaping her own shadowy past, she may have stumbled into someone else's. And this time, there may be nowhere to run...

TANK WATER

'The parochial under-belly of rural Australia is laid bare in this raw and powerful story that delves into the emotional toll and tragic consequences of gay-hate crime.' - Nicole Alexander, author of The Cedar Tree

Michael Burge has written a coming-of-age story and crime thriller with a large and gentle heart.

James Brandt didn't look back when he got away from his rural hometown as a teenager. Now he has returned to Kippen for the first time in twenty years because his cousin Tony has been found dead under the local bridge...

ALAN CARTER TALKS ABOUT 'CROCODILE TEARS' & CRIME WRITING

WATCH THE EVENT VIDEO ----- Alan Carter's latest novel skilfully blends the police procedural with the espionage thriller, and in a year when most of us haven't been going anywhere, this story takes you afar, from Hobart to Perth, from Bunbury to Darwin, from Fremantle to Dili in Timor-Leste.

As part of the A Shot in the Dark series of chats with the authors of the latest crime writing from Fremantle Press, Craig from Abbey's spoke with Alan about his book.

Australian Crime

THE GREAT AUSSIE (AND NZ!) CRIME FICTION BOOM!

Craig Sisterson is a crime fiction aficionado and author who has recently published SOUTHERN CROSS CRIME, the first comprehensive guide to modern Australian and New Zealand crime writing. He says you should think of it as a kind of Lonely Planet guide to Aussie/NZ crime fiction!

With a foreword by Michael Robotham, Sisterson showcases key titles from more than 200 storytellers. Fascinating insights are added through in-depth interviews with some of the prime suspects who paved the way or instigated the global boom, including Jane Harper, Michael Robotham, Paul Cleave, Emma Viskic, Paul Thomas, and Candice Fox.

Great if you want some ideas of who to read next!
