This week’s book giveaway is Death in the Ladies’ Goddess Club from bestselling Australian author Julian Leatherdale. The novel takes us to the shady underbelly and glamorous fringe of Sydney’s Kings Cross in the 1930s for a depression-era dose of murder and blackmail, family drama and love. We have three copies to give away.
In the murky world of Kings Cross in 1932, aspiring crime writer Joan Linderman and her friend and flatmate Bernice Becker live the wild bohemian life, a carnival of parties and fancy-dress artists’ balls.
One Saturday night, Joan is thrown headfirst into a real crime when she finds Ellie, her neighbour, murdered. To prove her worth as a crime writer and bring Ellie’s killer to justice, Joan secretly investigates the case in the footsteps of Sergeant Lillian Armfield.
But as Joan digs deeper, her list of suspects grows from the luxury apartment blocks of Sydney’s rich to the brothels and nightclubs of the Cross’s underclass.
Death in the Ladies’ Goddess Club is a riveting noir crime thriller with more surprises than even novelist Joan bargained for: blackmail, kidnapping, drug-peddling, a pagan sex cult, undercover cops, and a shocking confession.
This book takes place in Sydney in 1932 – so if you’d like to win yourself a copy, tell us where and when you’d like to be transported back to and why (in 50 words or fewer please!). Our favourite three answers will WIN a copy of this book!
Entries close midday Monday 23 March, Sydney/Melbourne time.
