Event description

Join us to celebrate the launch of Sydney author Pip Fioretti's new rural crime fiction book Bone Lands!  She will be in-conversation with Elisabeth Storrs, author and chair of the Historical Novel Society of Australia.

'Isn't it your job to stop people being murdered?'

1911, on a winter's night in arid New South Wales wool country, mounted trooper Augustus Hawkins discovers the bodies of three young people. They are scions of the richest family in the district, savagely murdered on a road that Hawkins should have been patrolling, had he not been busy bedding the local schoolteacher.Detectives arrive from Sydney and the disgraced Hawkins, a traumatised veteran of the Boer War, comes under fierce scrutiny. With his honour and sanity at stake, he becomes hell-bent on finding the murderer. But as ever darker secrets are revealed about the people he thinks of as friends, Hawkins is forced to confront an uncomfortable question: who is paying the price for the new nation's prosperity? 

About the Author: Pip Fioretti was born in Sydney and studied Humanities, Visual Arts and Museum Studies and went on to work and exhibit as a print-maker, as well as teaching part time at tertiary level. She currently writes full time.
