    On a stormy Halloween night, Stella gets a call from her best friend, Detective Phuong Nguyen. Phuong has a problem. Or rather her lover, Bruce Copeland, does.

    Copeland, fearing being falsely accused of involvement in a police corruption investigation, knows that only one person can prove that he is the only innocent cop in his unit — but this saviour-to-be has gone missing. So it's up to Stella to find the missing man, and convince him to testify for Copeland. Easy.

    Meanwhile, Stella finds herself drawn to the mysterious Cuong — Phuong’s eccentric cousin — a gambling addict with a crippling obsession with the supernatural. Cuong has been mixing with some unsavoury types at the race track, and with the Melbourne Cup only days away, Cuong is desperate to find the money he owes — before his ghosts come back to haunt him.

    When the fascinators and fake tan are on, the big money is out and the horses are off — and the race for Stella to get her man to a police station, and Cuong out of the country alive, is on.

    Easy? Too Easy.

    The young detectives call Alan Auhl a retread, but that doesn't faze him. He does things his own way - and gets results. He still lives with his ex-wife, off and on, in a big house full of random boarders and hard-luck stories. And he's still a cop, even though he retired from Homicide some years ago. He works cold cases now. Like the death of John Elphick - his daughters still convinced he was murdered, the coroner not so sure. Or the skeleton that's just been found under a concrete slab. Or the doctor who killed two wives and a girlfriend, and left no evidence at all. Auhl will stick with these cases until justice is done. One way or another.

    Publishing status: October 2018 New Release

    'An ugly story told beautifully. WEDDERBURN will hold you tightly in its grip, and leave an imprint when it lets you go.' Myfanwy Jones

    'In WEDDERBURN, we see the trauma caused by the blackest of hearts. A desolate yet deeply affecting tale of savage crime in rural Australia.' Mark Brandi

    'Maryrose Cuskelly has the rare gift of telling a true story with the excitement and vividness of fiction; she never forsakes the facts in this chilling and hypnotic book.' William McInnes

    'The slaughter was extravagant and bloody. And yet there were people in the small town of Wedderburn in Central Victoria who, while they did not exactly rejoice, quietly thought that Ian Jamieson had done them all a favour.'

    One fine Wednesday evening in October 2014, 65-year-old Ian Jamieson secured a hunting knife in a sheath to his belt and climbed through the wire fence separating his property from that of his much younger neighbour Greg Holmes. Less than 30 minutes later, Holmes was dead, stabbed more than 25 times. Jamieson returned home and took two shotguns from his gun safe. He walked across the road and shot Holmes' mother, Mary Lockhart, and her husband, Peter, multiple times before calling the police.

    In this compelling book, Maryrose Cuskelly gets to the core of this small Australian town and the people within it. Much like the successful podcast S-Town, things aren't always as they seem: Wedderburn begins with an outwardly simple murder but expands to probe the dark secrets that fester within small towns, asking: is murder something that lives next door to us all?
