The Crushers (Ros Gordon Mysteries Book 1)

Winner of the Patricia Hackett Prize for short fiction, Bronwyn Rodden has launched her novel that was selected for the Hachette/Queensland Writers Centre Manuscript Retreat in 2009. The Crushers is a mystery set in the Blue Mountains of NSW. ‘This is crime fiction set in the distinctively Australian Blue Mountains, revolving around Detective Ros Gordon and her colleagues as they aim to uncover the circumstances of the grizzly death of a young woman whose body has been found abandoned in a cave… the setting is beautifully evoked... the vivid sense we quickly gain of their mystique and threat is almost palpable, further drawing us into the story with a real appreciation of its setting.’ Kate Ballard
