Rogue Spy writer visits
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.
