An island of crime

Barry Weston

~ our newest author ~

celebrated the launch of his debut crime novel with friends, family

and newly-minted fans on an island off an island

off an island-continent.

The Long Con was launched by Andrew Nicholson

at the HIBA Gate House in Adventure Bay on Bruny Island.



Bruny Island is off the south-east coast of Tasmania, from which it is separated by the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, and Adventure Bay – behind Barry and Andrew above – runs into the Tasman Sea.



The past meets the present meet the future.

In which the artist-turned-writer signs copies of his first novel
under the gaze of one of his own paintings.




The Long Con  is a noirish crime novel set in Hobart featuring the knockabout private eye Frank Cousins.

It is now available in paperback and eBook.
