Event description

Sanctuary by Garry Disher

Grace is a master thief, specialising in valuable stamps, watches and jewellery. She never stays long in one place, so when she’s recognised at a Brisbane stamp expo, she must  go on the run again. 

But she’d like a shot at a normal life, and settles in the Adelaide Hills, where she uses her knowledge to work in an antiques business owned by Erin, her landlady. But someone’s looking for Erin. And someone else is looking for Grace. And they are both very dangerous men.

Garry will be in conversation with Tim Constantine.
