Seven Deadly Sinners

By Carmel McMurdo Audsley

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook


For anyone who has never visited Australia, or experienced the country in drought, it can be hard to imagine just how dry the continent can get. It can also be difficult to appreciate just how isolated some parts of rural Australia are, and how badly people, animals and plants can be affected when it doesn’t rain for years. Some people don’t see another soul for months at a time. This novella is set in 1957 in a fictional outback pub near the Queensland/New South Wales border, and is based on the many pubs that dot the landscape and offer a respite for weary travellers across the wide brown land. Eleven people are thrown together, isolated by swollen rivers and creeks. As the booze flows and the flies buzz, details of their lives unfurl and danger lurks in the form of unpalatable cocktails, dubious food served up by the proprietor – and a serial killer. But who could it be? See if you can guess.

Carmel McMurdo Audsley is an Australian Journalist and Author who lives in Brisbane with her husband Iain. Carmel’s first three books were historical fiction novels based on her family’s history in Scotland. She received glowing reviews from readers who were moved by the stories of people in the south-west of Scotland. The books spanned from the mid-1600s to 2012 and painted a vivid picture of life on the land, the transition to working in coal mines, young men heading off to war in two world conflicts, the Great Depression and life in Australia in the 1950s. Her fourth novel, The Undertaker, proved popular and readers asked for a sequel. The Undertaker:Masquerade was published in 2017 and The Undertaker:Hallowed Halls was published in 2018. Carmel has written, and had published, thousands of news stories and feature articles for magazines and newspapers, and now spends her time researching and writing historical fiction. This is her ninth novel.
