The Crime Stack: Broken Bay by Margaret Hickey

For the July Crime Stack, Penguin Random House Australia has kindly offered 20 copies of Broken Bay, the third in her award-winning police procedural series featuring Detective Sergeant Mark Ariti. Cutters End, the first in the series, won the BAD Danger Prize 2022 and was shortlisted for the Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction 2022.

Old loyalties and decades-long feuds rise to the surface in Broken Bay, set in a spectacular Australian landscape known for its jagged cliffs and hidden caves.

Mark Ariti has taken a few days’ holiday in Broken Bay at precisely the wrong time. The small fishing town on South Australia’s Limestone Coast is now the scene of a tragedy.

Renowned cave diver Mya Rennik has drowned while exploring a sinkhole on the land of wealthy farmer Frank Doyle. But when they retrieve Mya’s body, a whole new mystery is opened up, around the disappearance of a young local woman twenty years before.

Suddenly Mark is diving deep into the town’s history – and in particular the simmering rivalry between its two most prominent families, the Doyles and Sinclairs. . .

The Crime Stack is a benefit for Sisters in Crime members. Every month there are 20 books to win in a random draw of members.
