Bronwyn Rodden

Paperback 2023

A new Blue Mountains mystery by Bronwyn Rodden, Winner of the Patricia Hackett Prize.

In this third volume of the series, Detective Senior Constable Ros Gordon of Red Ridge, in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, investigates a series of suspicious deaths occurring in a train, a car and an historic Turkish Bath. 

Her inquiries take her and her colleague, Detective Constable Leighton, into the worlds of business, politics and art, and involve a steep learning curve around autonomous cars, NFTs, and a dentist who moonlights as a microbrewer. But, for Ros, another occupation is calling her.
