Description

Philip Trudeau, a once-respected investigative journalist, has stepped on the wrong toes. With his personal life and health deteriorating around him, he is consigned to a suburban newspaper where he writes ‘filler’ local news articles to be slotted in among the real estate advertisements. Sent to cover what appears to be a tragic-yet-routine death at a level crossing, Philip is drawn into a multilayered mystery that includes art theft, political intrigue and business corruption … not to mention murder.

Ghostlines is a cleverly-plotted and compelling story that is part thriller and part psychological mystery.

Ghostlines is rough-cut, grainy and good … Earthy and exciting, with a bluesy, wistful air.’
The Australian

‘A thriller with a neat psychological twist.’
The Herald-Sun

‘Crime fans will enjoy the compelling narrative, succinct writing and the pleasing lack of blood, gore and psychopathic behaviour that mars most contemporary crime stories … FOUR STARS’
