I’m special, so special*

For those of you who’ve been meaning to read my novels for ages, Text Publishing’s Deal of the Week sees all three available at the special price of AUD$14.99 each, with free delivery anywhere in the world.

Special deal bannerNow’s the perfect time to get hold of a copy of  Behind the Night Bazaar, my debut novel, which introduces Bangkok-based expatriate PI Jayne Keeney. Behind the Night Bazaar won a 2004 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award as an unpublished manuscript, and was later short-listed for the 2007 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Book.

‘Coolly elegant with a lovely sense of place, Savage directs her authorial tuk-tuk into the literary precinct without sacrificing the requisite violence, corrupt police, edgy social commentary and the need for her heroine to become a lonely social crusader in the best hard-boiled tradition.’ — Graeme Blundell, The Weekend Australian

Or maybe with all the talk of intercountry adoption reform in Australia, you’d like to read my second novel, The Half-Child, which deals with this very issue. The book also contains the seeds of a romance between Jayne Keeney and handsome Indian bookseller and ICT specialist Rajiv Patel. The Half-Child was shortlisted for the 2011 Ned Kelly Award for Best Fiction.

‘This is a gripping novel; an unromanticised travel guide to today’s Thailand; a critique of Western missionary endeavours; and a warning to naïve young people who stumble into volunteer work without the necessary skills.’ — Australian Bookseller & Publisher

The books are part of a series but can be enjoyed as standalone novels, too, meaning you could even start with the critically acclaimed third novel, The Dying Beach, set in Thailand’s exquisite southern coastal provinces. Wrapping environmental questions around a whodunnit, The Dying Beach was shortlisted for both the 2014 Ned Kelly Award for Best Fiction and the Davitt Award for Best Adult Fiction.

‘Angela Savage [takes the reader for a ride]…with wit and a meticulous attention to detail, her gracefully written novels, set so perceptively in Thailand, folding and unfolding in surprising directions…. Savage writes with dry humour and a beguiling sense of place, but a hard-boiled quality of menace underpins the light cleverness of her prose.’ — Graeme Blundell, The Australian

‘With its intricate narrative structure, use of multiple points of view and flashbacks, this is Savage’s most ambitious and accomplished crime novel to date.’ —  Sue Turnbull, Sydney Morning Herald

And did I mention free delivery worldwide?

* Taking a leaf out of crime fiction blogger extraordinaire Margot Kinberg‘s songbook (pun intended), the title is a line from ‘Brass in Pocket’ by the Pretenders.
