Summary

Rowland Sinclair is an artist and a gentleman.

In Australia's 1930s, the Sinclair name is respectable and influential, yet Rowland has a talent for scandal. He relies on the Sinclair fortune to indulge his artistic passions and friends: a poet, a painter and a brazen sculptress.

Mounting tensions fuelled by the Great Depression take Australia to the brink of revolution, but Rowland Sinclair is indifferent to the politics...until a brutal murder exposes an extraordinary and treasonous conspiracy.

Good Listen

Sydney in the 30's. Rural NSW in the 30's.The characters enter stage with faults and foibles and discover a world 'gone mad' with Old and New Guards, (Conservatives and Nazi) rising to defend Australia from the Left Wing and Communists. There is talk of Civil War.

'put the cricket bat down Mick'.

With a favorite uncle dead and best friend almost left for dead and branded, something has to done.
Good story.

Too much history, not enough story

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Cut back on some of the details of the political rallies, etc. The descriptions seemed to go on forever. I got to the point where I fast forwarded a few times.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I liked that fact that the chapters started with actual newspaper stories.
