To Know My Crime

Author(s): Fiona Capp

Fiction

How far would you go, for the ones you love? From award-winning writer Fiona Capp comes a novel about blackmail, risk, corruption and consequences - think Ian McEwan meets Peter Temple - set in the millionaire's playground of Portsea. This is modern Melbourne literary noir at its finest. Having lost all his family's money in ill-advised investments during the GFC, Ned is reduced to squatting in a boatshed in wealthy Portsea. He is avoiding the world, particularly his sister, Angela, who after an accident, is now a paraplegic, confined to a wheelchair, and completely dependent on both her carer, Mai, and Ned - not to mention the income from their family investments. But one day, Ned overhears a conversation between a millionaire property developer and a politician, and realizes that this might be his opportunity to restore their fortunes ...if he has the nerve. A nail-biting and compelling story of risk, blackmail and the corrosive nature of guilt - and how we all have to live with the consequences of our actions. Praise for Fiona Capp's Gotland: 'A subtle grace' Sydney Morning Herald 'A mature, intelligent, perceptive book' Caroline Baum 'Although Gotland is a physically small novel, it is enormous in its scope and complexity' Meredith Jaffe, The Hoopla 'Stately, thoughtful, slow-burner of a novel' Geordie Williamson, The Australian
