Like the first two books in the series, Chasing Odysseus and Trying war, The Blood of Wolves pulls together tales from Greek mythology, as well as Virgil's Aeneid. These stories do not contradict legend but provide another story/alternate explanation within ancient Greek history. Most importantly this is a great adventure story. It continues to follow the journeys of the 4 young protagonists, Hero and her 3 brothers (Mac, Cad and Lycon). In writing a series for young adults (as well as adult fiction), S. D Gentill follows in the footsteps of other acclaimed writers, such as Emily Rodda/Jennifer Rowe and Kate Forsyth. While her fast-moving quest is loosely based on Homer's mythical The Odyssey and illiad and the infamous fall of the ancient city of Troy as well as Virgil's Aneid, S. D Gentill creates twist after extraordinary twist for her four heroes that will keep today's readers gripped and enthralled from start to finish.
A Rowland Sinclair Novel In 1932, the RMS Aquitania embodies all that is gracious and refined, in a world gripped by crisis and doubt. Returning home on the luxury liner after months abroad, Rowland Sinclair and his companions dine with a suffragette, a Bishop and a retired World Prophet. The Church encounters less orthodox religion in the Aquitania's chandeliered ballroom, where men of God rub shoulders with mystics in dinner suits. The elegant atmosphere on board is charged with tension but civility prevails... until people start to die. The things get a bit awkward. And Rowland finds himself unwittingly in the centre of it all. I'm afraid, Sinclair has a habit of being in the wrong place every possible time. I would think twice about standing next to him. God forbid, Rowland, you should return home without some sort of scandal... leading some kind of insane cult!
Historical crime fiction at its best: gripping, beautifully-written and deeply-researched. The first in the 'Rowland Sinclair' series starts in Australia's 1930's Great Depression and is based on extraordinary yet real events, many of which seem incredible today. This story about art, money, crime and treason will appeal to both the popular market as well as literary lovers!
A Rowland Sinclair Novel (The fifth book in the Rowland Sinclair Mystery Series). After narrowly escaping Nazi terror, Rowland Sinclair and his companions land in London, believing they are safe. But they are wrong. A bizzare murder plunges the hapless Australians into a queer world of British aristocracy, Fascist Blackshirts, illicit love, scandal and spies. A world where gentlemen are not always what they are dressed up to be.
The third book in the 'Rowland Sinclair' series, set in 1933 in NSW high country. In early 1933, Rowland Sinclair and his companions are ensconced in the superlative luxury of The Hydro Majestic - Medlow Bath, where trouble seems distant indeed. And then Harry Simpson vanishes. Croquet and pre-dinner cocktails are abandoned for the High Country where Rowland hunts Simpson with a determination that is as mysterious as the disappearance itself. Stockmen, gangsters and a belligerent writer all gather to the fray, as the investigation becomes embroiled with a much darker conspiracy. Murder, treason, trespass, kidnapping, betrayal. . . Again, Rowland Sinclair finds himself in the middle of it all. . . .
It's 1933. Rowland and his companions are back home at "Woodlands House" occupied with their usual artistic pursuits, when Senator Charles Hardy calls unexpectedly. He puts an alarming proposal to Rowland. Eric Campbell, commander of the New Guard (featured in AFRTM) is in Europe about to travel to Germany with the intention of establishing links with the Nazi government. An opposing party, concerned that such an association will see Campbell's own star rise, placed a man in Germany to work with another agent ensconced in Campbell's party to ensure such links were thwarted. The first man, Bothwell, has died in unusual circumstances. Hardy asks Rowland to replace Bothwell, to travel Germany as an Old Guard spy and investigate Bothwell's death while he's at it! Manipulated by the Senator, Rowland agrees. Of course his friends, fellow artist Clyde Watson Jones, Jewish poet Milton Isaacs and the beautiful sculptress Edna Higgins insist on accompanying him. As time is of the essence, Charles Kingsford Smith and the Southern Cross fly the gang to Germany. Murder, Kidnapping, Impersonating, Smuggling, Propaganda, Deceit, Torture, War Prisoners, Book Burnings. . . and more. Rowland finds himself in a dark world. . . a world like no other. . .
