The series that began with The Holiday Murders and The Port Fairy Murders now continues with The Autumn Murders . . .
In the autumn of 1944, George Starling prepares to exact revenge on the person he hates most in the world (and Starling has a long list of people he hates), Detective Joe Sable of the Melbourne Homicide division. Driven by his dark passion for Nazism, Starling is going to make sure that nothing and no one will stand in his way and survive.
Homicide is in turmoil. Riven by internal divisions and disrupted by the war, it has become a dangerous place for Joe to work. Constable Helen Lord, suspended from her position in Homicide, and battling grief, is also in Starling's sights. Knowing that Inspector Titus Lambert can't protect them from Starling's ruthless aim, Helen and Joe decide to set their own trap. But when the trap is sprung, who will be caught in it?
The Autumn Murders is a stylish, historical whodunit, written with wit and insight into the dark corners where the worst of us hides.
'Robert Gott is an exceptional crime writer with six books under his belt.' -Mark Rubbo, Readings 'This masterly suspense novel by Robert Gott had me reading all night. Although it's the third in a series, this was my first - and it stands alone as a great individual read ... However, it's the rapid-fire storyline and expert plotting that make this novel a quick read, while great characters and astute social observations will keep you glued to the pages and invested in the outcome.' -Karina Barrymore, Herald Sun 'The Autumn Murders is a triumph not to be missed- a gripping whodunit, elevated by the polish and style to be expected from its author.' -Mel O'Connor, Echo
