Although Zero at the Bone might not be the final title, the follow-up to Line of Sight now has a publication date of August 21, 2013, coming out with the same publisher – Viking/Penguin. The new work contains many of the same cast of characters, although we’ve moved forwards a few years to 1979, on the cusp of the cowboy capitalism we in the West associate with the eighties. The background this time to Frank Swann’s investigations is the sharemarket scams and the gold business and money-laundering ways and means of the period.

In the meantime, the Perth book for New South is headed towards its deadline for submission, the reason I haven’t been blogging or reviewing of late.
