AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A half-naked body of a girl is discovered on a driveway in Mt Martha. A young man researching his grandfather's defection to Australia from the Hungarian Olympic team in 1956 is having trouble with his love life. An old man living alone with his cat discovers hidden clues ... Set in Melbourne in the 1950s and the present, this crime novel was inspired by an unsolved murder in 1953. Historically accurate in the details, it blends social commentary with character development and resolution.

'If you like Rankin's Edinburgh and Mankell's Ystad, you'll love Simpson's Melbourne. This is a gritty and disturbing work of crime fiction. ' (Publication summary)
