Guest Bio

Gordon was born in Swan Hill Victoria but his childhood town was Balranald on the Murrumbidgee river. He moved to Sydney first as young man and then settled back in the riverina area of the rural Australian town of Junee, north of Wagga Wagga in New South Wales. He studied and worked as a journalist and he had a flair for words and a love of great books as he explored life and experiences to share with readers. His first novel, Against the Grain, was published with positive support in 1967. And his passion for his writing only grew form there...Gordon is now a retired historian writing fiction.

About Evelyn Crowley

IT WAS A SIMPLE ENOUGH JOB FOR HARRY BECKER; RETURN A STOLEN HANDBAG TO EVELYN CROWLEY...

And then Mrs Crowley requests his help with another matter—locate the daughter she had given up to adoption.

Given his dubious standing amongst his former police colleagues, he only barely manages to achieve that. Then she asks him to take on another job—find out who is blackmailing her....

That's when life becomes a lot more intense for the disgraced cop.

Married to a big shot at a Canberra city bank; she knows what is going on behind the vaults and people want her dead because of it.

Things go from worse to unbearable, as Harry Becker tries to get her out of harm's way.

What began as a simple assignment has become a dangerous love affair and abandoning Evelyn is not an option for Becker.

For him, there is no way out—not when he loves a woman like Evelyn Crowley.

 

About Becker

ANASTACIA BABCHUK IS NOT THE KIND OF FRIEND YOU WOULD WANT TO HAVE. SHE KILLS PEOPLE SHE DOES NOT LIKE... AND ANOTHER THING, NEVER CALL HER CHOOK.

Harry Becker has fled to Wagga Wagga, in the heart of the Riverina, and bought a small farm, married a local mother of two and has set about building his idea of a rural paradise….

Until a man from the past turns up, and on the run from the Mafia… then a creep, known only as the Kid, arrives to make sure things go from bad to worse with ease.

And he is intent on killing Becker until Anastacia steps in to persuade him otherwise...

She is a cop from Canberra and out for her own type of revenge. The Kid killed her partner while trying to protect Evelyn Crowley. 

Amongst the chaos, retribution will be found, and scores settled. 

For Becker, the safety of his family is paramount. 

Amidst the mayhem, he knows an unimagined ending will come. 

And after all the blood washes away… maybe all returns to normal in paradise… Or does it?
