L. A. Larkin and Natalie Conyer in conversation with Malla Nunn

Deadly, dangerous, dazzling? What drew Larkin, Conyer and Nunn to set crime-thrillers in Africa? These Sydney Sisters in Crime will discuss their story locations, their characters and their inspiration. Sponsored by the newly-established Sisters in Crime Sydney, which supports and nurtures female Australian crime writers, this is bound to be a lively and entertaining night.
In L.A. Larkin’s new thriller, Prey, journalist Olivia Wolfe must unravel the terrible secret that connects a British cabinet minister, a Vietnamese billionaire, and a poor South African teacher to a series of gruesome murders.
Natalie Conyer’s debut crime novel, Present Tense, is set in Cape Town. It’s a hard-boiled police procedural about an ordinary cop trying to find his way in a thrilling and dangerous country.
Malla Nunn is the author of four internationally published adult crime novels set in 1950s’ Apartheid South Africa. Her debut YA novel, When the Ground is Hard, is set in a Swaziland boarding school where two girls of different castes bond over a shared copy of Jane Eyre.
