Peter Corris is credited with reviving the fully-fledged Australian crime novel. With Comeback, the inimitable Cliff Hardy returns: he may have his licence back but does he still have what it takes to make it as a private investigator?

Treading the line between fact and fiction, Mad Dog recreates the story of “Mad Dog” Moxley, exploring the dark history and disturbed mind of a murderer against the bleak and troubled background of depression-era Sydney.

Join Peter as he discusses his latest books and tells stories of Sydney’s mad, bad and dangerous to know.

Includes light refreshments and live music.

Presented with Ryde Library Service.
