DEEP IN THE FOREST

Erina Reddan's mystery is set in Stone Lake, Victoria and centres around Charli who desperately wants to leave the small town when she receives a cryptic message from someone at The Sanctuary - a conservative closed community in the forest...

EVERYONE ON THIS TRAIN IS A SUSPECT

Benjamin Stevenson's mystery is an amusing story set on the Ghan between Darwin and Adelaide and centres around 6 writers, 5 detectives, 4 days, 3 weapons, 2 murders and 1 train. With all of them knowing how to get away with murder, it's going to be difficult to solve the crime.

CHRIS HAMMER

Chris Hammer's latest is set in a fictional town in the Riverina where seven families hold political, economic and social power. While writing a thesis, a descendant of the founders is murdered and detectives, Ivan Lucic and Nell Buchanan are brought in to investigate.

NO TRACE

Michael Trant's latest crime novel centres around Gabe who featured in Wild Dogs. This time he finds himself in a small cattle community where all lines of communication have gone down and every road in and out of the town is blocked off by flooding.

I AM ALREADY DEAD

Ned Kelly Award nominee David Whish-Wilson returns with his follow-up to True West. A very satisfying mystery, well-paced with Whish-Wilson's trainee private investigator, Lee Southern, being a compelling 'tough guy' along the lines of Lee Child's Jack Reacher, Greg Hurwitz's Orphan X, and Garry Disher's Wyatt.

VERTIGO

The amusing first line in Karen Herbert's new mystery sets the tone, "No-one ever made a movie about the murder of a bureaucrat". Herbert takes you from a recognisable (to any office worker) office scenario and leads you into a story of corruption.

SUMMER OF BLOOD

Dave Warner's new mystery is set in 1967 and two Sydney detectives are in California looking for the missing son of an Australian politician. The trail leads into the summer sunshine of hippie and festival culture, which the two embrace with enthusiasm, and Warner has fun setting the scene with cameos from musicians of the moment.

HEADCASE

Jack Heath's thrilling novel follows Timothy Blake as he investigates a convicted kidnapper. During the investigation he is affected by urges he can't control. His girlfriend Zara suspects something sinister is going on. Will he survive and if he does will anyone believe him?

Abbey's Spotify Playlists

It has long been tradition (since 1968) that no music is played in Abbey's Bookshop. Not because we don't like music, but simply because Eve and Ron Abbey were very fond of the respite from the outside world and contemplation that come with browsing in our bookshop.

If, however, you were wanting to listen to something while browsing and wanting a change from your usual, then we've compiled a few playlists that, like our curation of books, are sprinkled with the less familiar and swerve into laneways less-travelled.
