About this Event

Recommended for adult audiences.

Australian journalist and former crime and court reporter Katherine Firkin returns with her explosive second novel, The girl remains – a pacy and chilling police procedural that explores the dark side of a small coastal town on the Mornington Peninsula. The girl remains offers a cast of compelling characters whose backstories are intricately woven into the investigation.

The girl remains...On the evening of September 22, 1998, three teenage girls venture out for a night of mischief in the coastal town of Blairgowrie. Only two return. The disappearance of Cecilia May remained a mystery for over twenty years. Conflicting witness accounts, timelines that don’t add up, and the only suspect a registered sex offender, whose confession proved false. So when human remains are discovered near Koonya beach, it’s up to Detective Emmett Corban and his team to dig up decades of trauma, and find the missing piece of an investigation that’s as complex as it is tragic. But the police aren’t the only ones hunting for the truth: someone else has arrived in the seaside town. And she’s prepared to do whatever it takes to find her own version of justice…

Don't miss this opportunity to hear Katherine speak about what influences her writing; the role of media in police investigations; as well as the dark side of small towns.
