PRAISE FOR
THE MYSTERY WRITER

‘A mischievous twist on mystery novels and the people who write them.’ Benjamin Stevenson, author of Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone

‘Some mysteries need a crime writer to solve. Clever, twisty, and surprisingly unexpected.’ 
Michael Robotham, author of Lying Beside You and The Secrets She Keeps

It's wild, it's wacky and just a bit mad but definitely worth the cost of a ticket to hop on Gentill's bus.’ The Sydney Morning Herald

The Mystery Writer is a cleverly concocted and original novel that gently plays with the conventions of the crime genre, while providing a good dose of mystery and suspense. I think that it is Sulari's best novel to date.’ —Canberra Weekly
