Join Krissy Kneen for a Salon of emerging writers with Emily Maguire discussing her new novel 'An Isolated Incident' (Pan Macmillan Australia).

***This event will start at the special time of 7pm***

This event will also serve as the August meeting for both Fiona's Open Bookclub and The Good Sex Award Bookclub. Come along to what will be a fascinating discussion!*

When 25-year-old Bella Michaels is brutally murdered in the small town of Strathdee, the community is stunned and a media storm descends.

Unwillingly thrust into the eye of that storm is Bella's beloved older sister, Chris, a barmaid at the local pub, whose apparent easygoing nature conceals hard-won wisdom and the kind of street-smarts only experience can bring.

As Chris is plunged into despair and searches for answers, reasons, explanation - anything - that could make even the smallest sense of Bella's death, her ex-husband, friends and neighbours do their best to support her. But as the days tick by with no arrest, Chris's suspicion of those around her grows.

'An Isolated Incident' is a psychological thriller about everyday violence, the media's obsession with pretty dead girls, the grip of grief and the myth of closure, and the difficulties of knowing the difference between a ghost and a memory, between a monster and a man.
