About Death Leave the Station

Written for fans of classic mystery and crime fiction, Death Leaves the Station brings the cosy country house intrigue of crime fiction's Golden Age to the Australian wheatbelt. Alongside the usual search for clues and gradual reveals, the narrative offers a wry critique of our country’s attitudes towards gender, race, class and culture.
