Another winner at this year’s Ned Kelly Awards was Kel Robertson, who shared the prize for best crime novel with Peter Corris. Text published Kel’s first novel, Dead Set, in 2006. Set in the nation’s capital, it introduced the brilliantly original character, Inspector Brad Chen, in a tale of politics, violence and intrigue.
Now, Chen returns in Robertson’s second book, Smoke and Mirrors, published this time by Gininderra Press. Text congratulates Kel on his first Ned Kelly Award and we wish him every success with Smoke and Mirrors, and beyond.
