This week we enjoyed a very special evening with guest speaker, author Laraine Stephens.
We had a number of guests attend on the evening and all appeared to have enjoyed the night.
Laraine had worked as a teacher-librarian and Head of Library before she became a writer of historical crime fiction. Her first novel in the Reggie da Costa Mysteries, was The Death Mask Murders (2021) followed by Deadly Intent (2022) and then A Deadly Game in 2023. Laraine sets her Reggie da Costa Mysteries in Melbourne, early 20th century, in the aftermath of the Great war and during the heady days of 1920's, when gangs, sly grog and gambling dens inhabited the back streets of Melbourne.
Laraine happily signed copies of her books at the end of the evening.
Our thanks to Tony and the staff at Holmsglen for making our evening so special.
