BLACK SAILS, DISCO INFERNO
Written by Andrez Bergen
Publication Date: 30 June 2016
Publisher: Open Books
An unnamed city, in which crime families flourish and the police pinch pennies from those with most power...
'Black Sails, Disco Inferno' is a retelling of the classic medieval romance of Tristan and Isolde, turning things on their head by reversing the sex of the chief protagonists and placing them in a '70s pulp/noir world — amidst a sensual, disco-infused narrative overflowing with shady schemes, double dealings, cruel brutality and a spellbinding mystery.

A heist thriller set in Queensland, Melbourne and Thailand. Think Richard Stark's Parker, Garry Disher's Wyatt, and Wallace Stroby's Crissa Stone. Add a touch of Surfers Paradise sleaze and a very dangerous stopover in Asia.
Gary Chance is a former Australian army driver, ex-bouncer and thief. His latest job sees him in Queensland working for Dennis Curry, an aging Surfers Paradise standover man. Curry runs off-site, non-casino poker games, and wants to rob one of his best customers, a high roller called Frederick 'Freddie' Gao.
While the job may seem straightforward, Curry's crew is anything but. Frank Dormer is a secretive former Australian soldier turned private security contractor. Sophia Lekakis is a highly-strung receptionist at the hotel where Gao stays when he visits Surfers. Amber is Curry's attractive female housemate and part of the lure for Gao. Chance knows he can't trust anyone, but nothing prepares him for what unfolds when Curry's plan goes wrong.
