Tara returns to crime fiction with a brand-new series and a brand-new heroine: the smart, sassy, and sexy PI Billie Walker. Set in post-World War II Sydney, Billie finds herself surrounded by smugglers, players, and gangsters. She must pit her wits against the underworld of Sydney to find a young man before it's too late.
Tara visits from Canada to discuss the first book in her new crime fiction series, Dead Man Switch. Join Tara as she discusses crime fiction, writing, and reflecting on strong women working in a predominately male world.
Tara Moss is the best-selling author of eleven books including non-fiction, the acclaimed Mak Vanderwall crime-fiction series and Pandora English paranormal series. Tara is also a journalist, doctoral candidate, presenter, documentary co-producer and co-writer, model, and outspoken advocate for children’s rights and women’s rights.
The Library Shop will have Tara’s books available for sale at the event, including Dead Man Switch, and you are invited to meet her post-event to get your book signed.
