BLACKWATTLE CREEK scoops 2013 Ned Kelly Award

Our cousins across the ditch (what we Anzacs call the Tasman Sea) have announced the winners of the Ned Kelly Awards for best Australian crime writing at an event at the Brisbane Writers Festival, with Geoffrey McGeachin scooping the Best Fiction prize for his novel BLACKWATTLE CREEK.

The judges called BLACKWATTLE CREEK:

"A flawless novel that offers everything one could wish for in crime fiction: an enveloping sense of time and place, well-drawn and compelling characters and a suspenseful story that rips along at a cracking pace while still allowing a thought-provoking theme to be explored."
