Blood Witness
Blood Witness

Blood Witness is a slick, fast-paced legal thriller set in Melbourne but with a genuine international flavour and with enough twists to surprise even the most avid fans of the genre.
The West Australian

These is plenty happening in this book and the wild ride from murderers, thugs and a haunting past through the laneways of inner-city Melbourne is a lot of fun.

There's romance and rumbling, knife fights, knuckle sandwiches and a cracking twist in the tale.

Verdict: Fast paced and gripping
