Roots (2017)
Winner of the 2017 Thunderbolt Prize for Crime Writing – Fiction
“An unsettling story that effectively uses the mundane event of a sewerage blockage to create tension. The truth about the protagonist’s character is slowly revealed through his thoughts and memories. Narrative detail is sparse, but evocatively used, letting the reader fill in the gaps of the story with their own imagination.” – Emma Viskic, Fiction Judge for the 2017 Thunderbolt Prize
