Black Beacon’s Subtropical Suspense

Barry Rosenberg, David Dolan, Sam Muller

Sixteen sizzling tales of murder and mayhem set in the subtropical city of Brisbane! Sultry setting Chilling suspense Australian mystery and noir The debut anthology from Black Beacon Books offers the fan of short suspense and noir stories chills galore, despite the sultry setting these tales share. Wherever you call home, this book is your ticket to Brisbane, the subtropical capital of Queensland, Australia, where the sizzling sun casts long shadows. Reviews These sixteen short stories take the reader across Brisbane, from Morningside to Indooroopilly, from Hamilton to Acacia Ridge. There is baking sun and flooding rains, police procedurals and criminal capers, murderous mermaids and poison pens… all give a ripple of pleasure to the reader who knows Brisbane - or wants to know it - and who has wondered why stories of murder, malice, and magic couldn’t be set here. And of course, they should be: Brisbane’s shadows are as dark and good to hide in as any in the world - and Subtropical Suspense revels in this. - Stephen M. Irwin, author of The Dead Path and screenwriter of the TV series, Harrow Each tale is written with an affection for detail that will resonate with people who know Brisbane intimately. It gives readers a broader sense of what could be going on in our neighbours' back yards. Or perhaps it gives us all a greater insight into what could happen if we allow our minds to wander down dark alleyways and turn strange corners. - Tom Snowdon, The Courier-Mail A Lasting Impression - FN Karmatz Penelope Potter - Frank Ince The Deluge - Gerry Huntman Magnetic North - FN Karmatz Scarlett Fever - Alice Godwin Downpour - Sophie Yorkston Missing - Kerry Lown Whalen The Woman from the West - David Dolan Living Statue - Barry Rosenberg Incident in Wilston - Phil Brown Like Me, The River - Duncan Richardson Campus of Fear - Frank Ince Cold Comfort - Sam Muller The Final Cut - Linda Brucesmith Blood on the Ice - Helen Stubbs The Death, Rise and Deliverance of Greer Cabot - Kirk Marshall
