THE FRAIL MAN

by Anthony Crowley

Steven Saken made his first million at the age of eighteen. Now on the cusp of the biggest business merger of his career, he is struck down with a mysterious cancer. On the same night he first becomes ill, a Muslim woman is savagely murdered outside his house and logic dictates he is a witness to the crime, although he denies any knowledge. Meanwhile two ghosts of Australia's convict past escape and set about trying to survive in a strange, terrifying new land while in the present - a detective slowly unravels the horrible truth of the woman's death and Saken's fateful illness
