Rogue Spy writer vis­its

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Angelique Pat­ter­son

MEET the mas­ter­mind be­hind the crime ad­ven­ture novel Rogue Spy, when Daintree au­thor Matthew Searle stops in to Port Dou­glas and Moss­man for book sign­ing events.

Af­ter pub­lish­ing his first novel Rogue Spy re­cently, Mr Searle de­cided it was time to in­tro­duce him­self and his novel in per­son, to the re­gion.

‘‘I thought Port Dou­glas and Moss­man would be a good place to start be­cause the story is about the re­gion and also a per­sonal re­flec­tion of my life in Alaska,’’ he said.

‘‘Ev­ery­one is in­vited but get in early be­cause I only have a lim­ited num­ber of books.’’

The story fol­lows Aus­tralian de­tec­tive Frank Barnes, who is in a search for a se­rial killer who fled Aus­tralia and has been spot­ted in Alaska.

‘‘Frank trav­els to Alaska chas­ing the se­rial killer who has killed five peo­ple in­clud­ing his part­ner five years ago,’’ Mr Searle said.

‘‘He gets to­gether with Alyssa and a bud­ding ro­mance oc­curs while they go on a man­hunt for a se­rial killer, which takes them across Alaska and adventures arise in­clud­ing an armed rob­bery, a wild­fire and even a fatal ac­ci­dent in an iso­lated area of the state - it re­ally is a crime ad­ven­ture.’’

The book sign­ing events are next Wed­nes­day Novem­ber 13 at 11am at the Book Lounge on Grant Street, Port Dou­glas and at the Moss­man Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Mill Street Moss­man, on Thurs­day Novem­ber 21 from 11am.
