Blackwattle Creek

Blackwattle Creek

By Geoffrey McGeachin

When a recently widowed friend asks a favour, ex-bomber pilot and former POW Detective Charlie Berlin is dropped into something much bigger than he bargained for. 

When a recently widowed friend asks a favour, ex-bomber pilot and former POW Detective Charlie Berlin is dropped into something much bigger than he bargained for.  What starts with body parts disappearing from funeral parlours leads to Blackwattle Creek, once an asylum for the criminally insane and now home to even darker evils.  If Berlin thought government machinations during World War 11 were devious, those of the Cold War leave them for dead.
'A flawless novel that offers everything one could wish for in crime fiction.' Ned Kelly Award Judges' Comment
'A well-written, compelling crime novel that delves into some very dark places . . . A very impressive novel, and Berlin, a complex, intriguing character.'  Canberra Times
'Intelligent, historically well informed and moves at a cracking pace.  A great read on many levels.'  Good Reading
'With his intricate plotting, his sharp eye for detail, skilful characterisation and brilliantly believable dialogue, there is not much this marvellouswriter can't do.'  Sunday Tasmanian
