Book Launch: Doom Creek (Alan Carter)

The Hobart Bookshop, 5.30pm, Thursday December 3rd


We are pleased to be hosting the launch, by Stephen Brown, of Alan Carters's new novel, Doom Creek.


Sergeant Nick Chester has dodged the Geordie gangsters he once feared, is out of hiding and looking forward to a quiet life. But gold fever is creating ill-feeling between prospectors, and a new threat lurks in the form of trigger-happy Americans preparing for doomsday by building a bolthole at the top of the South Island. As tensions simmer in the Wakamarina Valley, Nick finds himself working on a cold-case murder and investigating a scandal-plagued religious sect. When local and international events reach fever pitch, Chester finds himself up against an evil that knows no borders.

Alan Carter was born in Sunderland, UK. He immigrated to Australia in 1991 and now lives in splendid semi-rural semi-isolation south of Hobart, Tasmania. He sometimes works as a television documentary director and in his spare time he follows the black line up and down the local swimming pool or drags on his wetsuit and braves the icy waters of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
Stephen Brown (SJ Brown) is the author of the Detective Inspector Mahoney series. His TasNoir ‘whydunnits’ seek to explore our native state. When not at his writing desk, he works as a tour guide all around the Apple Isle.
