The Problem with Murder

SKU: 9781875989126
Author: Michael Duffy | Publisher: Orphan Rock

From the publisher of The Dressmaker, a crime novel set in a country town full of landscape and memory.

Bella Greaves is semi-retired and edit's Katoomba's local newspaper. She is content but just a little bored.

When disgraced homicide detective Paul Ruel is exiled to the Mountains, his superiors expect him to resign from frustration. Then he uncovers a crime that has been covered up for years, and turns to Bella for help.

She finds Paul just as intriguing as the investigation.

"It has come to my attention there is a detective active in the Blue Mountains with certain similarities to myself. Obviously we are completely different people, although I admire his taste in suits." – Gary Jubelin, former Detective Chief Inspector

More of a local tale than a murder story

A very easy read but I struggled to take this book seriously. I compare it to a romance novel in terms of complexity. As a local, I was part amused and part horrified at the references to local characters. Stereotypes with little depth or complexity.

Our very own Midsomer Murders - set entirely in the Blue Mountains! Nice one

Finally, the Blue Mountains is the scene for a delicious tale of adventure, mystery and a murder or two, that had me hankering to drive on up and scout out the local area again. A fun read and am keen to see more in this instalment. Yes please!

I'm absolutely flattered that Michael Duffy has written a book about some of my adventures in our little town. I never thought when I first spoke to him that he'd be so interested as to record some of Katoomba's dark secrets. About time!
