A town ruled by fear. A cop who won’t be broken.

Ben Hobson is in-conversation with Frank Chalmers discussing his crime novel Conviction.

A pulse-pounding debut thriller that pulls no punches. Queensland in 1976 churns with corruption. When Detective Ray Windsor defies it, he is exiled deep into the state’s west. It’s easy out there to feel alien in your own country. Royalton is a town on its knees, stricken by drought, riven by prejudice, and plagued by crimes left largely uninvestigated by the local police chief, Kennedy, and his elusive boss.

Martine Kropkowski is in-conversation with JP Pomare discussing his new crime novel The Wrong Woman.

It was a tragic accident. Wasn’t it? A private investigator returning to the hometown he fled years ago becomes entangled in the disappearance of two teenage girls in this stunning literary crime thriller.

Reid left the small town of Manson a decade ago, promising his former Chief of Police boss he’d never return. He made a new life in the city, became a PI and turned his back on his old life for good.

Now an insurance firm has offered him good money to look into a suspicious car crash, and he finds himself back in the place he grew up – home to his complicated family history, a scarring relationship breakdown and a very public career-ending incident.
