Next month, A Shot in the Dark crosses the ditch for a crime novel set in New Zealand. Fiona Stager of Avid Reader will talk to award-winning novelist Alan Carter about book two in the Nick Chester series.
In 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 says, ‘I'm really looking forward to talking about Doom Creek, my new-release sequel to the award-winning, NZ-set Marlborough Man. The series seems to be building up a head of steam, with Doom Creek snapped up by German publishers even before its Australian release. A Shot in the Dark is a great opportunity in these crazy socially distanced lockdown times to be able to maintain that vital connection with readers.’
