I SHOT THE DEVIL

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Ruth McIver's novel won the Richell Prize 2018 for emerging writers and the writing is of such quality and depth.

The scenario is of a young journalist revisiting a traumatic part of her life for an article she's been convinced by her editor to write. The details surrounding this dark part of her life when, as a teenager, she was in the fold with wayward friends in a fug of drugs, bad sex and heavy metal that ended in a climactic murder that scandalised the nation. The media at the time spun stories of satanism and the novel is an unsettling journey towards knowing what really happened on that night.

Overall, this novel masterfully manages to convey a feeling of danger, menace and unease, as if we are reading a gruesome true-life suburban tragedy. Craig Kirchner

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!
