IN 1960, AT THE TOWN OF JINDABYNE, A MAN IS WRONGFULLY CONVICTED FOR HORSE THEFT, HIS DEATH SHORTLY FOLLOWS… Shortly after his release from jail, he is found deceased from a slow painful poisoning. The murder is clear in its intent and the man’s missing wife is the most obvious suspect for the crime. The search commences to locate her and bring answer to the glaring question – Why? The Sydney detectives quickly realise that they’re not dealing with just any ordinary female fugitive. In fact, this lady fugitive, with her two female companions are a highly intelligent, witty and intuitive gang of women who keep themselves one step ahead of the law at all times. This story may be set in the 1960s but these three women have twenty-first century liberties and articulate feminine skills which ultimately leaves the men who hunt them hilariously humbled in their wake…

Timo was born to immigrants, the fifth of seven kids. Raised in a Finnish enclave of sugar pioneers, his good luck was to emerge bilingual and duo cultural. It weighed nothing but doubled his outlook. He was educated in government schools, and graduated from the University of Queensland. A career as an economist followed in Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney. He took early retirement and made a change to stonemason, for ten years until 2010, when the body said enough. During this time he was an occasional writer for the local newspaper, Bay Post–Moruya Examiner.
