With Gerda’s motivations still a mystery, SAS officer Geoff Shawcross sets off in pursuit across the world. More information here.

 

THE WITCH HUNTERS

Released August 2017

THE NOVEL satirises the way the media, big firm lawyers and sundry activists deal with clerical sexual abuse. It is a tale of outrageous hypocrisy that will sometimes make you laugh, sometimes cringe, and sometimes leave you appalled, but will always be ‘glittering’ in its satire, as one reviewer put it.

He traces the cultural continuities of Australian society and shows where his ancestors fitted in. An important part of the story is the indispensable role the convicts played in establishing the Australian nation. Nine convict ancestors are found in the author’s line.
