Chris Hammer on ‘The Seven’ and ‘Scrublands’
Chris Hammer superfan Dom Romeo is joined by Chris Hammer to talk about his latest novel, ‘The Seven’.
Fresh off the back of winning BAD: Sydney’s ‘Danger Award’ for best crime novel with his previous book, ‘The Tilt‘, the adventure continues. It’s his third novel with Ivan Lucic and Nell Buchanan, as they are called to the Yuwonderie Irrigation Scheme along the Murrumbidgee River to investigate the body of an accountant found stabbed on the land of the local member of parliament. As with his last outing in ‘The Tilt’, Chris Hammer takes us through three timelines that eloquently unveil the history the investigation uncovers.
Dom also chats with Chris about the new ‘Scrublands’ adaptation, bringing Chris’ breakout story of journalist Martin Scarsden to the silver screen.
Thank you to Allen & Unwin, BAD: Sydney Crime Writers’ Festival, and DMCPR for their assistance in sourcing copies and arranging our interview with Chris.
