Death Leaves the Station brings the cosy country-house intrigue of crime fiction's Golden Age to the Australian wheatbelt.

Set in 1927, the story takes all the classic elements of an interwar murder mystery and gives it a distinctive Australian flavour. A nameless friar turns up at Halfwell Station, at the same time that Ana, the adopted daughter of the station owners, discovers a body in the desert nearby when she goes for a midnight walk. But when she returns to look for it, the body is gone. Death Leaves the Station was written for fans of classic mystery and crime fiction.

Alexander Thorpe grew up in the southern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia. Both an avid reader and a life-long insomniac, Alexander first began using novels from the Golden Age of crime fiction as a means of self-medication. Far from putting him to sleep, however, they soon had him concocting plots of his own into the early hours. When not writing, Alexander can be found inflicting his idiosyncratic brand of English on international students, exploring new frontiers in miserable music, or reading up on history, linguistics and environmental issues.
