Editorial Reviews


Powerful characters make an entertaining read. Martin and Claire are strong-willed, intelligent and witty as they follow a trail of dead bodies and other clues in the remote but beautiful holiday resort, located on the West Australian coast. While they may not always know the direction their investigation is taking them (because the killer is laying a false trail and is intent on luring them to their deaths), they quickly recover from early setbacks and finally gain the upper hand. I look forward to reading others in this series.

From the Author

As far back as I can remember I've always been a reader.When I graduated from the FARAWAY TREE series by Enid Blyton, I began devouringher other stories, THE ADVENTUROUS FOUR soon becoming my favourite. Sadly,there were only two novels in this series, but I think I could relate to thespirit of these four youngsters more than I could to the FAMOUS FIVE. At thistime, TREASURE ISLAND was also a favourite. Deep down, I guess I wanted to livean adventurous life: I wanted to explore exotic places and outsmart thebaddies.
While at primary school, I began to plot scenarios for mytwo sisters, my brother and myself to act out in our yard. I guess you couldcall these early writing experiments PLAYS WITHOUT DIALOGUE. I'd write theaction scenes and direct my siblings in the manner I wanted them to unfold. Eachof us played multiple roles. This sort of activity would often engage us forweeks at a time, with me adding new scenes on a daily basis as my imagination racedhither and thither.
During my teenage years, I discovered science fiction, mytaste gravitating towards fantastic adventures on strange, faraway worlds.Edgar Rice Burroughs quickly became my favourite author, especially his TARZAN,MARS and VENUS series. I devoured every new release (well, re-release really) Icould get my hands on. I wanted to be Tarzan, John Carter and Carson Napier allrolled into one. Their exciting lives seemed, in a way, more real than my own.(They were certainly more exciting.)
Around this time, I abandoned writing for my siblings andturned my hand to penning short stories. By the time the 60s arrived, thesewere usually set right here on Earth, on a planet that was recovering from somesort of nuclear war, and my characters were the survivors of this holocaust.(Remember, this was a time when the threat of nuclear attack was uppermost inthe minds of most of the world's population.) Later, my characters travelled toalien worlds, using a form of teleportation that I had no idea how to explain.To this point, I was writing frequently, churning out stories at a rapid rate,but I concentrated solely on science fiction.
