The Bullet of the Fated Ten, 'Price Warung' , single work short story historical fiction
This is a tale of ten convicts condemned to death in Sydney and their appeal to 'The Ring' in an attempt to escape the sentence. It is a good tale which maintains the suspense with a masterly hand. Set in the convict period it cleverly depicts the convict way of thinking and the attitude of the warders and the authorities. Also appearing are the women prisoners who are effectively used in the story. (Back cover).
