VOSS The Price of Innocence by Terry L Probert
Australian Detective Story / Murder Mystery / Set in Canberra
The Price of Innocence is enjoyable and hard to put down. I relished the drama of Canberra’s underground porn scene with all of its jealousies and competition being the underlining reason for a brutal murder spree. Australian fiction at its best. – Kevin Drum, Clifton Springs
When a series of murders are linked to Detective Inspector Voss, he is stood down from active duty. With the aid of some unlikely characters, including a homeless man who lives in Voss’s garden and underworld connections, he leads his former colleagues into the seedy world of Canberra’s porn industry and uncovers corruption at the highest places. In the process, he’s forced to face some unknown and unwelcome truths concerning one of the victims – his ex-wife. The Price of Innocence is a fast-paced crime mystery that will keep the reader guessing until the last pages. – Judy Rigby http://judyrigby.com/

This long awaited follow up novel to Terry L Probert’s KUNDELA is now ready for release and early reviewers are extolling Probert’s capacity as a storyteller.
Following on from his debut novel Kundela, this new story is as much a stand alone Aussie action adventure, as it is a continuation of the Gillespie family’s fortunes, as they battle to save their farm from mining giant RAYDOR.
Set in and around Orroroo on the edge of the Flinders Ranges Joe Gillespie is anxious, haunted by a rhyme his father forced him to learn as a toddler. Now, his home and farm buildings remain vandalised and if he could only get rid of this thumping pain in his head, he might be of some use again.
Too mean for fatherhood and too drunk to care, Les Gillespie used cruelty to reinforce his words, taking Joe only a few tours of Vietnam to replace those terrors with the horrors of that Asian War.
Now forty years after burying the man he despised, Joe is looking at this gold receipt, memorising the first verse of the poem, desperate to remember the rest of it. He scours his mind for a hidden meaning, was there gold, did Les bury it, or was this just one more after death trick to torture his son?
Deciding he must resolve this, or die trying, Joe Gillespie is a dangerous man.
