Is there ever a reason to kill?
Currumbin, Gold Coast author seems to think so in his latest crime thriller Murder without Reason and exciting and fast-moving crime story that brilliantly captures the private lives, tribulations, grief and anxieties of modern day police officers.
By: Donna Munro
Snow Elliott became embittered and cynical after being sentenced to five years imprisonment in Victoria for causing a man’s death in a fight – a fight he did not instigate or want. He believed he had been handed a raw deal by authorities until he met Benny Tindle, whose sentence far outweighed any grievances Elliott may have had. This is a story of how these two men became firm friends, and casting aside their adversities, commenced a new and successful life in North Queensland where they were unknown.
There are many colourful characters such as Andre Macrossan, ‘Cement Head’ Robinson, Emily ‘Fat-bat’ Harrison, ‘Itchy Dick’ Millward, Mary Barlow alias the ‘Dickless Tracy’ and one of Brisbane’s most celebrated drunks ‘Filthy’ Bert Fells, to name a few, all play leading parts throughout this tale – 'Murder without Reason'.
The story culminates in a major robbery committed on an International Drug Syndicate. The characters depicted within are a mixed bunch, dedicated to their cause, enjoying friendship with fierce solidarity and loyalty.

He was educated at the Newcastle Technical High School in NSW then travelled extensively throughout the world as a merchant seaman before joining the police force in 1957.
