About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'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.' --Sunday Age 'At first glance, The Port Fairy Murders appears to follow the male lead, female sidekick combo. But Gott knows better: by far the smartest investigator on the block is Constable Helen Lord, whose frustration is barely contained as she watches the men around her fumble, falter and generally get it wrong ... Dickensian or even Jamesian in its breadth ... a very ''literary'' crime series that works so well on many different levels.' --Saturday Age 'A dazzling mix of elegant prose, convincing period detail, and heart-stopping violence.' --Angela Savage
