Miles Off Course (Rowland Sinclair Mysteries Book 3) Kindle Edition
A Rowland Sinclair Mystery
Sulari Gentill - Winner of Davitt Award for Best Adult Crime Fiction 2012
In early 1933, Rowland Sinclair and his companions are ensconced in the superlative luxury of The Hydro Majestic - Medlow Bath, where trouble seems distant indeed.
And then Harry Simpson vanishes.
Croquet and pre-dinner cocktails are abandoned for the High Country where Rowland hunts for Simpson with a determination that is as mysterious as the disappearance itself. Stockmen, gangsters and a belligerent writer all gather to the fray, as the investigation becomes embroiled with a much darker conspiracy.
As all hell breaks loose, will Rowland be able to save Harry from his captors? And will he be strong enough to save himself and the rest of his companions?
Gripping, beautifully-written and deeply-researched this historical crime fiction series is set in the early 1930's and based on extraordinary yet real events. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
The plot of Miles Off Course is a brightly splashed canvas, one that Gentill takes obvious delight in painting. This is the kind of book that is so fun to read that one can't help but feel that the author must have gotten a real kick out of writing it -- John Purcell ― Booktopia
Gentill's combination of factual events and places, built around the fictional undertakings of her cast of characters help to give the books a fantastic grounding, and a firm sense of place. Done, mind you, with the lightest of touches, and with the flair of a real storyteller, the books "feel" right and real and authentic, the stories are fast paced, nuanced, often funny, frequently insightful and just flat out darned good yarns. -- Karen Chisolm ― Aust Crime Fiction
This is a great romp in picturesque locations, but not without danger -- Patty Mac ― Goodreads
Just the right mix of humour, tension and history to make a delightful amateur detective tale. -- Imogen ― Goodreads --This text refers to the paperback edition.
