Description

When a popular young woman is strangled in her home in the seaside village of Murloo, the residents are sure an itinerant surfer who disappeared after the murder is the killer. However, one year later the surfer is still missing and the killer's identity remains a mystery. The victim's family call in investigative journalist Dusty Kent who has an impeccable record in solving the cold cases she writes about. Dusty's determination to investigate unresolved crime is fuelled by a personal connection through her own family tragedy. However, this case tests Dusty to the limit and she despairs of ever catching the callous killer who seems to be lurking nearby and yet... A gripping mystery imbued with the ambience of Australia-from the mysterious wood carving found with the body, the captivating characters of a small town, to the coastal splendour of the Southern Ocean. Murder in Murloo is a classic who-dun-it introducing Dusty Kent written by JB Rowley and published under the pseudonym Brigid George.show more

About Brigid George

Brigid George grew up in a small Australian town called Orbost in the state of Victoria. She spent her childhood chasing snakes and lizards down hollow logs, playing Hansel and Gretel in the bush with her brothers, climbing trees, searching the local rubbish tip for books to read and generally behaving like a feral child. To avoid her boisterous brothers she often escaped into the hayshed with a book. Hours and hours of reading from an early age trained her for life as a writer. In primary school her teachers called her 'the one with the Enid Blyton touch'. Her love of reading murder mysteries as an adult has now evolved into a love of writing them. As a teenager she had short stories published in one of Australia's national magazines, New Idea. Since then she has won several awards for her stories which have also been published in anthologies. Brigid still lives in the state of Victoria but is now in the capital city of Melbourne where her life is fertile with friends. Brigid George is the pseudonym of JB Rowley - author of Whisper My Secret, Mother of Ten and the children's series Trapped in Gondwana. Why Brigid George? Brigid because that was what JB's father called her. George because that was his first name.show more
