Release day: Dead Again
Today is the official release of Dead Again by Sandi Wallace (print and ebook, Atlas Productions). Here’s the blurb:
It is almost two years since wildfires ravaged the tiny town of Bullock, and Melbourne journalist, Georgie Harvey, is on assignment in the recovering town to write a feature story on the anniversary of the tragedy.
In nearby Daylesford, police officer, John Franklin, is investigating a spree of vandalism and burglaries, while champing to trade his uniform for the plain clothes of a detective.
When Georgie’s story and Franklin’s cases collide, she not only finds herself back in conflict with the man she’s been trying to forget since their first encounter, but she uncovers the truth about how the fires started – a truth no-one is wanting to believe.
Sandi dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
A childhood spent holidaying with my family in Gippsland, followed by years of exploring Daylesford and country Australia with my husband, added with a lifelong dream to be a crime writer, and fantasy that I would’ve made a good police detective if I hadn’t pursued writing, all inspire my rural crime series. In Dead Again, I throw Franklin and Georgie back into conflict, testing if the sparks in book one (Tell Me Why) run deeper than the allure of opposites and the pull of surviving danger, while they unravel the connection between a crime spree in Daylesford and the truth behind a devastating wildfire in the tiny town of Bullock two years earlier. In Australia, our environment is unique and beautiful but can also be heartbreaking and the theme of survival and rebuilding of communities in fire-affected rural regions runs beneath the fictional story, making this a book that is very close to my heart and I hope readers enjoy it.
