Take a tour across time-periods and landscapes – both sinister and superb – with international best-selling authors Kayte Nunn and Téa Cooper in conversation with psychologist and crime writer, A. D. Penhall.

In Kayte Nunn’s The Last Reunion, visit the little known but truly remarkable Women’s Auxiliary Service, Burma (the Wasbies) in 1944. Then, hold on to your hats while you whisk back and forward between Calcutta and Shillong (1944), Oxford (1976), London and Galway (1999). Find yourself, alongside Bea, her World War II companions and young aspiring art-dealer, Olivia, caught up in the mystery of the stolen Fox-Girl, a Japanese netsuke from the Edo period.

In Tea Cooper’s soon to be released, The Fossil Hunter, step back into the mysterious 19th century location of Wollembi in the Hunter Valley. Time-travel to the end of World War 1, where a connection between a fossil in London’s Natural History museum and her two dead brothers spurs Penelope to find the truth about long buried bodies in the sinister Bow Wow Gorge.
