Death on the Ferry Hygeia

By Will Spokes

RRP: $24.95
ISBN: 9781922594594
The 1920’s. 
A time of excitement and tumultuous social change.

The horrors of World War One have passed, receding into history and the Great Depression has yet to come. 

In the bubble of relative calm, the city prospered as her citizens went about their lives. 

Ineffective social welfare led to crushing poverty and low-level crime. 

Defending the city from villains was an undermanned and under equipped police force experiencing great change.

A well connected but guileless young policeman begins his career in this city of contrasts, blended extreme poverty and wealthy privilege.

Constable Jim Foley’s commitment and enthusiasm is put to the test under the scrutiny of his uncle a senior Officer in the force. 

A major charity event is planned aboard the majestic Port Phillip Bay excursion ferry Hygeia. 

But his career, and even his very life, are on the line as evil stalks the passengers and the blood flows into the water…

“An historical ride into a period of modesty and hopefulness that drives a tale of suspense and thrill just as Agatha did on the Nile, a blast of classic past storytelling and mystery…wonderful work!” Dianne, Indiebook reviewer
