Charismatic Crime Fighters description

Australian crime writers are riding a wave of global success, consistently creating compelling and charismatic characters who investigate heinous crimes with tenacity and often dry humour. Emma Viskic’s celebrated Caleb Zelic series, featuring a Deaf, articulate, obstinate, brilliant outsider as the private investigator protagonist, launched in 2016 with Resurrection Bay, with the recent Darkness for Light the third in the series.  Chris Hammer’s debut Scrublands (2018) was a bestselling sensation, and his two follow up novels, Silver and Trust, all featuring the gritty and emotionally scarred journalist Martin Scarsden, have been equally acclaimed.  Emma and Chris talk to Cath Kenneally about crafting compelling protagonists, and the long-term commitment required to write a series.
