AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Mira Chambers has an infallible gift for solving mysteries … but using it comes with a price. Determined to regain her independence after ten years in orphanages and asylums, Mira leaps at the chance to help her friend, Bennet Chiron, an enigmatic ex-con who risked his life to save hers. Mira plans to investigate the murder-robbery that put him behind bars for six years, in the hope of clearing his name. But people are turning up dead under bizarre circumstances, and Mira discovers that she’s being hunted by two old adversaries. Layers of secrets are about to be ripped apart … is Mira the only one with a steep price to pay?' Source: http://content.boomerangbooks.com.au (Sighted 13/06/2011).

Notes

  • Dedication:
    For David Meshow, musical genius and comedian.
    Plays anywhere, anything. Amazing.

    And for Lorelle Clark, a very special lady,
    whose humour through hardship
    continues to inspire me.

Affiliation Notes

  • Writing Disability in Australia:

    Type of disability Magical blindness - can see the past but not present.
    Type of character Primary.
    Point of view Third person.

    Note: This work uses disability as a metaphorical note or literary device. A blind character can see images of the past, but is hence disadvantaged once objects move in the present.
