(? - ) Australian-born journalist and author, mostly resident in France. His first novel, Fever City (2016), is an Alternate History tale set primarily in Los Angeles (see California), where the protagonist, a noirish detective, becomes involved first in a kidnapping and then in the assassination of John F Kennedy. The interactions between the two, and consequential revelations about the true nature of America, are interwoven in a manner reminiscent of the more exorbitant tales of Richard Condon. [JC]
