Created by Patricia Carlon
Australian private detective JEFFERSON SHIELDS investigates
the death of a student killed during a "peaceful" demonstration
against the Vietnam War that somehow turned into a murder, in
Patricia Carlon's very well-received Death By Demonstration.
Other books by the prolific Carlon, who's been dubbed "Australia's
Patricia Highsmith," include Hush, It's a Game, The
Unquiet Night, The Running Woman, The Souvenir,
The Whispering Wall, Crime of Silence and The Price
of an Orphan.
- ". . . the forthright maze-building skills of this tart,
hard-boiled author remain superlative."
(Janet Maslin, The New York Times)
- "Carlon's descriptions and deftly applied pressure put
her in the same league as Patricia Highsmith."
