With lots of love from Georgia – New Zealand e-book month

A funny and engaging novel written in a playful, inventive style.

Ben Sanders beats the odds

How can you put yourself through university without ending up with a debt? Answer – become a writer.

Bestselling New Zealand crime writer Ben Sanders began “writing a bit every day” and by the age of twenty one he had two crime novels published. His first book hit the New Zealand bestseller list.

His hard man and police detective Sean Devereaux inhabits the mean streets of Auckland. He and his equally hard case friend, security specialist John Hale, deal with murder, kidnapping, corruption and general mayhem with a traditional hero’s lack of respect for rules and authority, leaving a trail of blood and broken noses behind them.

Fast paced and well plotted, these are very readable noir novels. I would never have guessed that they were written by someone so young – but that being so, they hold the promise of even better things to come.

Keep them coming, Ben!
