Tumble

Known as ‘The Klinger’ by his colleagues, Detective Kennedy Kling of the Queensland Police Service has a reputation for tenacity. The Klinger solves cases from Brisbane’s dark side, where motives are murky and the crimes are disturbing.

When the body of a young woman is found – poorly staged to look like suicide – a pattern emerges which points to a sadistic serial killer. The Klinger must find the killer before they can kill again. As Detective Kling investigates the case, a colleague’s son goes missing and a disturbing link is uncovered. The investigation becomes a desperate race against time and a mind driven insane with grief.

Can The Klinger solve the mystery? His steely focus is the missing youth’s best chance for survival.

Backcover blurb for ‘Tumble’, the first Klinger novel.

Tunnel City

I sat with my back to the girl in labour. Of course, at my age, anyone younger than twenty harvests is considered to be a girl. I could hear her screams, her panting. I could hear the midwife reassuring her, telling her to push. I could hear the girl cursing and swearing, threatening to bring down the wrath of Light onto the absent father of the child she was pushing into existence. The pain of labour always brings out the best humour – and language – in a woman.

In Tunnel City, the greatest respect you could show any other person was to turn your back on them, giving them some privacy. Aside from the midwife and myself, the labouring girl had an entire platform to herself. Anyone with an urgent need to pass, did so with their eyes carefully averted.

Binda Universe

Wracked by war and long-term abuse, Earth can no longer sustain life. Humanity is dying, with the last vestiges desperately scraping together an existence below ground. Salvation is discovered, however, in orbit around Jupiter.

A cluster of bubbles, each the size of a marble, is scooped up by a routine mining craft in transit to Jupiter. During discovery and experimentation, scientists determine that the bubbles can expand. They grow to encompass any volume of air or materials placed inside them, protecting their contents from the harsh environment. Continue reading “Binda Universe”
