About this event

Join best-selling author Ben Hobson in conversation with author Frank Chalmers to discuss his debut thriller ‘Conviction’. This event will be hosted on Zoom, the link will be sent to all attendees on the day of the event. Frank Chalmers began a forty-year professional writing career on scripts for drama (feature film, tv series, interactive), documentary, corporate and educational media, moved to conceptual/interaction design for websites and games, and has addressed conferences. He merged all of these skills into Conceptual Designer + Content Developer for museums and interpretive centres. He now writes novels.

During this digital book club, guests will have the opportunity to ask questions, interact with the authors, and enjoy a well-rounded bookish discussion.

Ben’s Book Club is a free monthly digital book club hosted by author Ben Hobson - brought to you by OverDrive. We welcome guests to join us the fourth Tuesday of each month to engage and interact with authors from all genres. The Zoom link will be emailed to all attendees on the day of the event.

This month’s featured title, ‘Conviction', should be available to borrow from your local library with no waitlists or holds! If not, you can request your library buys this title. Download Libby and find your local library to start reading: meet.libbyapp.com

ABOUT THE TITLE

A town ruled by fear. A cop who won’t be broken. A pulse-pounding debut thriller that pulls no punches.

Queensland in 1976 churns with corruption. When Detective Ray Windsor defies it, he is exiled deep into the state's west. It's easy out there to feel alien in your own country.

Royalton is a town on its knees, stricken by drought, riven by prejudice, and plagued by crimes left largely uninvestigated by the local police chief, Kennedy, and his elusive boss. Mutual dislike between Kennedy and Ray gradually turns ugly as Ray and his new partner, Arshag, uncover a pattern of crimes that no one seems concerned about solving. But when two girls from local immigrant families are found dead and another disappears, Ray and Arshag are forced to take the law into their own hands. Not knowing who to trust, nor how deep the corruption runs, how long will it be before their lives are also threatened?

"The bedrock of my research was the Fitzgerald Inquiry Report and Matt Condon's books. What interested me most were stories of people far from the "corridors of power", everyday people making hard moral choices alone, against menacing, far superior forces. It was those experiences I wanted to knit together. Plus years of living through Bjelke-Petersen, to the present day.” – Frank Chalmers

Ben's Book Club is brought to you by OverDrive and your local library. Libby is compatible on all devices with iOS 10+ and Android 5.0+ and KOBO. If you have a Windows computer, Mac computer, or a Chromebook, you can use Libby in your web browser at libbyapp.com. We suggest using the latest version of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Edge.
