Roots

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.

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
