I’m very excited to have a copy of book 8 of the Rowland Sinclair series in my hands for this NSW October Labour Day long weekend.
The series has had a recent change of cover style. I miss the old art deco style covers, but I think these darker covers show the crime side of the story off more.
My previous reviews for the first seven books plus prequel can be found here, but for now here’s a little taster for A Dangerous Language.
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.
In this, it seems, the government is not alone, as clandestine right-wing militias reconstitute into deadly strike forces.
A Communist agent is murdered on the steps of Parliament House and Rowland finds himself drawn into a dangerous world of politics and assassination.
A disgraced minister, an unidentified corpse and an old flame all bring their own special bedlam.
Once again Rowland Sinclair stands against the unthinkable, with an artist, a poet and a brazen sculptress by his side.
Gentill’s epigraph is one from George Bernard Shaw.
