We are having a criminally good time in the
Clan Destine Press
production cave this month. We’re thrilled
to announce another debut crime novel:
What happens on tour stays on tour was the mantra for the southern hemisphere backpackers who swarmed Europe in the 1980s.
Waikato-born Judy Williams worked hard for her Big OE: London, Paris, Rome, Gallipoli; and her adventures were dutifully recorded in her diary.
A diary that also recorded how the obsessive Tugga Tancred and his Kiwi mates turned Judy’s trip of a lifetime into a nightmare of sly sexual harassment.
‘With its tense shifts between characters, settings and time
frames, and penetrating insights into the world of newsgathering,
Tugga’s Mob is the story of a forgotten crime that refuses to stay
buried but plays out in an edgy intersection with the present.’
