The City of Perth Library, the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies and Boffins Books present a different sort of book launch—Clear to the Horizon—with author, musician and screenwriter, Dave Warner. Accompanied by a guitarist, Dave will entertain us with songs, poems and tales about love, his early life in Bicton and writing crime fiction.
About 'Clear to the Horizon'
Set in WA in 1999 and 2000, 'Clear to the Horizon' tells the story of the mysterious disappearance of three young women outside the Autostrada nightclub in the Perth suburb of Claremont. The knockabout Snowy Lane (City of Light) is hired as a private investigator, but neither he nor the cops can find the abductor.
