              The Serpent's Sting
               

              The Serpent's Sting (EPUB ebook)

              By Gott, Robert

              'It was suffocatingly hot, and the audience of howling children was viciously indifferent to the violence being done to my integrity as an artist by every ghastly syllable I was obliged to utter and by every mincing step I was obliged to take. As the foul smell of the ancient wig... I was wearing wafted into my nostrils, I began to view the bombing of Darwin with something like nostalgia.' William Power, actor and sometime private inquiry agent, has returned from the Northern Territory, shaken, stirred, and generally discombobulated. 'I survived the tropics with my life and my looks intact, despite the best efforts of the flora, fauna, and Military Intelligence to steal both from me.' It is late 1942, and in what he believes is a demeaning sideshow to the war, he finds himself playing a pantomime dame. If only this was his only worry, but, as his great hero, Shakespeare, noted, 'When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions.' Can Will finally overcome his tendency to be the living embodiment of Murphy's Law? PRAISE FOR ROBERT GOTT 'Aussie comic crime fiction wouldn't be the same without William Power ... an entertaining blend of humour, historical crime, and the world of theatre.'

              The Port Fairy Murders
               

              The Port Fairy Murders (EPUB ebook)

              By Gott, Robert

              The Port Fairy Murders is the sequel to The Holiday Murders, a political and historical crime novel set in 1943, featuring the newly formed homicide department of Victoria Police. The department has been struggling to counter little-known fascist groups, particularly an organi...sation called Australia First that has been festering in Australia since before the war. And now there's an extra problem: the bitter divide between Catholics and Protestants, which is especially raw in small rural communities. The homicide team, which once again includes Detective Joe Sable and Constable Helen Lord, is trying to track down a dangerous man named George Starling. At the same time, they are called to investigate a double murder in the fishing village of Port Fairy. It seems straightforward - they have a signed confession - but it soon becomes apparent that nothing about the incident is as it seems. Written with great verve and insight, The Port Fairy Murders is a superb psychological study, as well as a riveting historical whodunit. PRAISE FOR ROBERT GOTT 'Set during World War II, the novel, like its predecessor, has a strong sense of place, not just in the little Victorian coastal town of Port Fairy, but also in the streets of inner Melbourne. Gott skilfully illustrates the sexist, racist and homophobic culture of this historical period, but he weaves through the necessary details with a light touch.' The Sunday Age 'The Port Fairy Murders is a well-paced thriller, although to label it straight-up crime or police procedural is to sell it short ... Fans of crime - or simply fans of a solid plot - will likely devour this novel in an afternoon.' The Big Issue
