For the more cosy style lovers - Brian Kavanagh has recently announced that he's got a new contract signed with BeWrite Books to publish the third in the Belinda Lawrence mystery series, BLOODY HAM. Following on from CAPABLE OF MURDER and THE EMBROIDERED CORPSE, the new mystery follows Belinda and Hazel Whitby into the murky world of film production and murder on location in historic Ham House!
Congratulations go to Adrian Hyland as well. Diamond Dove didn't make the final long list for the Miles Franklin award, but it was initially considered which is a set in the right direction for Australian Crime Fiction.
Text Publishing have also announced that they will be reprinting another of Peter Temple's back catalogue: Shooting Star (which is a standalone - not part of the Irish series).
