Award-winning author Peter Temple has worked as a journalist, editor and teacher of journalism and editing. He has just been named joint-winner of the NED KELLY AWARD FOR BEST CRIME NOVEL 2001 for DEAD POINT. This is his second win in a row -- SHOOTING STAR won last year -- and his third Ned Kelly Award.

'Temple's work is spare, deeply ironic; his wit, like the local beer, as cold as

a dental anaesthetic' - THE AUSTRALIAN

'Temple is as dark and mean, as cool and as mesmerising, as any James Ellroy

or Elmore Leonard' - THE AGE
