Ned Kelly Award 2015

I am very excited to announce here on the blog that my novel Gun Street Girl has been short-listed for the 2015 Ned Kelly Award. In the judges opinion this was the "best Duffy yet" which pleased me no end as I thought very seriously about ending the series after book 3. 
You can read the complete list of six shortlisted novels at the Australian Crime Writers Association website. I've read two of the other books on the list Malla Nunn's Present Darkness and Barry Maitland's Crucifixion Creek and they were both excellent!
This is the third year in a row that my new Sean Duffy novel has been shortlisted for the Ned Kelly Award. If you haven't read any of them maybe this wd be a good time to start?
