Forgotten Book: THE LIFE AND CRIMES OF HARRY LAVENDER, Marele Day
Most of my contributions this year to Pattinase's Friday's Forgotten Books come from my records for 1992.
Synopsis (from Fantastic Fiction)
Mark Bannister, writing "the bestseller of the century" is found dead at his computer - the victim of a murder so perfect that Claudia Valentine smells a rat, and wants it caught. The chase leads into the murky underworld of Sydney.
I featured #2 in Marele Day's Claudia Valentine series THE CASE OF THE CHINESE BOXES a couple of years ago in Forgotten Books.
Marele Day received a Ned Kelly Lifetime Achievement award in 2008.
She won a Shamus Award in 1993 for The Last Tango of Dolores Delgado
