Crime and mystery short story collections of startling originality; and a grim warning of what evil lurks in Australian suburbia – Kerry Greenwood

My story Starfish under Falling Water is included in this collection after winning the ‘Crime and Punishment Award’ for the story with the most satisfying retribution. Sponsored by Writers Victoria, the award also won me a three-month Writer’s Residency at the Old Melbourne Gaol – a fantastic opportunity and experience. Thrilled to be a part of this collection and the 25th Scarlet Stiletto Awards.

Award presented by the amazing Kate, actor Kate Atkinson.
