Joe Cinque’s Consolation: A True Story of Death, Grief and the Law

In October 1997 a clever young law student at ANU made a bizarre plan to murder her devoted boyfriend after a dinner party at their house.  Some of the dinner guests - most of them university students - had heard rumours of the plan.  Nobody warned Joe Cinque.  He died one Sunday, in his own bed, of a massive dose of Rohypnol and heroin.  His girlfriend and her best friend were charged with his murder.

A Private Man

It is two days since Dr John Brand's death and his eldest son, Davis, suspects a cover-up. 'Survived by two sons', the death notice said. 'Peacefully.' But someone has lied: there are three sons, and the circumstances of their father's death are murky.  A PRIVATE MAN is at once a poignant story of a family's grief, an artfully constructed thriller and a provocative dissection of Australian men and their private passions.

Lost

‘An electrifying mystery from the author whose dazzling debut, THE SUSPECT', raised the bar for whodunits.' Australian Women’s Weekly

On a cold London night, homicide detective Vincent Ruiz is fished out of the Thames with a bullet in his leg and an even bigger hole in his memory. He has no recollection of the shooting or how he finished in the river. The only clue is a photograph found in his pocket of Mickey Carlyle, a seven-year-old girl who went missing three years earlier.
