One to watch: Alexander Thorpe gets up close and cosy as he takes us back to the golden age of crime

Fans of crime fiction, if you missed the live edition of the Fremantle Press online crime series: A Shot in the Dark, you haven’t missed out entirely.

Here’s Alexander Thorpe talking to Jane Seaton of Beaufort Street Books about Alexander’s new book Death Leaves the Station. With a vanishing corpse, an orphaned girl and a nameless friar with a hidden past, Death Leaves the Station, brings the cosy, country-house intrigue of crime fiction’s Golden Age to the Australian wheatbelt.

Death Leaves the Station is available in all good bookstores and online. Buy it from a Western Australian bookseller and you’ll get a second Fremantle Press crime title, free! Want to try before you buy? Read a sample chapter here.
