AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Black Beacon Books presents Subtropical Suspense, an anthology of scorching tales of mystery set in and around Brisbane. If you call the river city home, or have ever visited, this anthology will take pride of place on your bookshelf. If you haven't yet found your way to Brisbane, and you are not faint-hearted, feel free to use this anthology as a travel guide ... of places best avoided!

'Subtropical Suspense will take you from a caravan park in Newmarket to an ice rink in Acacia Ridge, and from the grubbiest corners of Fortitude Valley to the quiet and respectable streets of Wilston. You will hunt murderers, thieves, and fraudsters. You will survive floods and thunderstorms. You will never look at jacarandas the same way again and the murky mysteries of the Brisbane River will be revealed. You will get lost, but you will find yourself again. You will, above all, find Brisbane again.

'Sit down in a cool reading spot–on a verandah or under a Moreton Bay fig tree would be ideal–and let the subtropical suspense take hold.'
