Publisher's Summary

Volunteering his services as a pilot to fly renowned international peace advocate Egon Kisch between Fremantle and Melbourne, Rowland is unaware how hard Australia's new attorney general will fight to keep the 'raging reporter' off Australian soil.

Add a disgraced minister, an unidentified corpse and an old flame who will not be denied and once again Rowland Sinclair stands against the unthinkable, with an artist, a poet and a brazen sculptress by his side.

Critic Reviews

"Clever Gentill. Blithely slotting real people and events into a crime series set in the 1930s.... Once again, telling the fictional from the real is part of the fun." ( Sydney Morning Herald)
"Strong plots, and wonderful characters...there is so much wonderful reading in the entire series." ( Austcrimefiction)

I am Addicted.

I have listened to this volume in a week.

All of the Rowland Sinclair series is well written and narrated.

Book one is still my favorite as it exhibits more of the quintessential Australian wit.

Character development is good and well thought out. The storyline is believable although young Rowland's character is somewhat abused?

The relationship between his band of friends is good although, I have started questioning Rowland's continued financial support.

The only thing that annoys me is the use of the English language which tends to be more modern whereas 1930s English is a little more formal. But again don't let it get between you and an excellent read.

Book 9 downloading.

enjoying this series

While this is not Rupert Degas' best narration, it is still pretty good.
The writing of Sulari Gentill may at times seem a bit style driven and superficial, and still the story is addictive and good fun. For now 3 stars with an option to change my mind.

The bits of history, the news reports and such do place the story in time and puts attitudes in their place. At first I found the 'name dropping' annoying, now it makes sense

There was great writing in the 1930's and a lot of the historical cozy style stories appear to treat the past as quaint. Given Sulari Gentill's research into the time I think this quaint, over the top presentation is deliberate, and dare I say, without prejudice, "high camp" and meant to be a bit silly.The poking fun at stuffy respectability fits alongside the big political movements. With the horror and outrage.
My own vision of the 30's with the felt hats and sartorial finesse for men, the stylish caps and feathers with well fitting ensemble for women wearing gloves of course,does see the light of day here. The depression, the union movements are here too along with folk on the wallaby track.

The bottom line is these stories are just plain enjoyable.
