Blackwattle Creek

A Charlie Berlin Novel

by Geoffrey McGeachin
Publication Date: 07/07/2021
RRP  $19.99 $17.80

The insane are running the asylum in this cracking Charlie Berlin thriller.

It's September 1957, two days before the VFL grand final, and Detective Sergeant Charlie Berlin finally has some time off. But there's no rest for this decent if damaged man, still troubled by his wartime experience as a bomber pilot and POW. A recently widowed friend asks a favour and he's dropped into something much bigger than he bargained for.

Berlin discovers a Melbourne funeral parlour has been burying bodies with parts missing and when a Hungarian emigre hearse driver points him in the right direction it quickly becomes clear that anyone asking questions is also asking for trouble.

With his offsider beaten and left for dead, witnesses warned off and Special Branch on his case, Berlin realises even his young family may be in danger.

His pursuit of the truth leads Berlin to Blackwattle Creek, once an asylum for the criminally insane and now home to even darker evils. And if Charlie thought government machinations during World War II were devious, those of the Cold War leave them for dead.
