The Lost Swimmer - Rebecca Wilding, an archeology professor, traces the past for a living. But suddenly, truth and certainty is turning against her. Rebecca is accused of serious fraud, and worse, she suspects – she knows – that her husband, Stephen, is having an affair. The Lost Swimmer is an extraordinary novel that beautifully weaves together mood, atmosphere and sheer emotional power – this is literary suspense at its very best.

Six Degrees - Six Degrees uses the allure, the action or the absence of physical connection to explore these everyday character’s flaws, quirks and strengths. For the first time, critically-acclaimed author Honey Brown has made sexual attraction the intriguing hero of each story.

Active and a keen bushwalker, a life-changing blow came for Honey in her late-twenties when she was involved in a farm accident. The resulting spinal injury left her confined to a wheelchair. Honey turned to writing as a way back from the trauma and the depression that followed.

Join Ann Turner and Honey Brown for a discussion about crime writing and much more!
