Move over Underbelly Razor for George Overton

By: Donna Munro
Sept. 27, 2011 - PRLog -- This work of crime fiction/short stories covers five different crime cases and is an exciting and mysterious read. Set in Sydney during the late 1940s to early 1950s, the cases are investigated by Detective George Overton who is supposed to be retired and taking things easy.

From the cases of ‘The Magicians Assistant’, ‘The Star-Crossed Lovers’, ‘The Bolt from The Blue’, to the cases of ‘The Eagle and the Fox’ and ‘The Murdered Milko’ all the stories vividly capture life and death as it was at that time.

The characters, like the ones in Roger Wood’s previous books, are well crafted with straight believable dialogue that suits the situations. While the stories are different and varied, they all contain the right balance of mystery and intrigue that keeps the reader guessing to the outcome.

This is a great read for lovers of crime.

Roger Wood travelled to the UK in the 1960s on a working holiday. He worked for BBC Television in the design department for 23 years on the full range of productions before returning to Australia in 1987.
