Join Tom Keneally and his daughter Meg as they discuss their second Monsarrat novel, The Unmourned, an intriguing work of historical crime fiction that successfully blurs the lines between historical fact and credible fiction.

Newly settled in Parramatta, Monsarrat is charged with uncovering the truth behind the murder of the unsavoury superintendent of Parramatta Female Factory in this mystery crime novel that explores the early days of the Colony, especially the challenges faced by convict women.
