Review

'A gripping ensemble of dark delights.' MARELE DAY 'Dazzling, different and totally unexpected. This thrilling collection of cleverly-crafted short stories illuminates both the diversity of the crime genre and the ingenuity of the writers who experiment with its possibilities here. ' SUSAN TURNBULL 'Highly original stories many using the standard elements of cop, crook, crime and punishment and yet producing fresh and intriguing tales. People who like reading crime stories will love this book. Australian crime writing is soaring.' GABRIELLE LORD 'A clever, diverse and exciting collection of some of Australia's finest new crime writers as well as gems from more established voices. If this is the future of Australian crime writing then the genre is in good hands!' ADRIAN MCKINTY"

"The best short crime stories are where the crime becomes almost incidental, or hasn't even happened yet, but is building towards it, or it happened in the past and someone is paying for it now." --P.M. Newton, author, Beams Falling

Product Description

Is there really such a thing as an innocent person?



Teachers, cops, mothers, wives ─ everyone has a moment of crisis; when things could go either way. From the prostitute with no way out, to the bitter author and the cop who just wants his leave, the characters in this collection all reach a turning point.



Crime Scenes is short crime fiction at its best ─ stories filled with deceptions and misdirections, high-stakes action and characters facing difficult moral choices.



...
