The River Read invites best-selling authors to Noosa

Michael Robotham's anticipated latest psychological thriller 'When you are Mine'.

Local booklovers are in for a treat this winter, with The River Read bringing a host of Australian authors to Noosa for a series of book launch events.

Having hosted best selling authors Peter FitzSimons and Michael Robotham in 2019, sisters and co-owners of The River Read Natalie Webster and Lucinda Morley are looking forward to once again sharing these literary treats with the town they love.

“After the lockdowns last year, authors are keener than ever to get out and about and talk to their readers, share their stories, and bring their characters to life in a social setting,“ Lucinda said.

On Friday July 9, best selling author Michael Robotham and special guest Carlie Wacker will be talking all things crime fiction and the release of his highly anticipated latest psychological thriller When you are Mine.

In this pulse racing standalone thriller, Robotham introduces Philomena McCarthy, who has defied the odds and become a promising young officer with the Metroplitan Police despite being the daughter of a notorious London gangster. Called to the scene of a domestic assault one day, she rescues a bloodied young woman, Tempe Brown, the mistress of a decorated detective. The incident is hushed up, but Phil has unwittingly made a dangerous enemy with powerful friends.

Michael Robotham has had a string of best sellers, from his 2004 debut thriller, The Suspect, the first of nine novels featuring the beloved Joe O’Loughlin, to more recent page turners Good Girl Bad Girl, When She Was Good and The Other Wife. In 2020, his best selling novel The Secret She Keeps was adapted for television, the series running on Channel 10.

Lunch with Michael Robotham will be on Friday 9 July from 12noon at Frenchies Brasserie Noosaville.

Tickets are $70 and includes 2 course lunch and a glass of blanc de blanc Madame Coco Sparkling.
