Second-Hand

Excellent condition

Gladys Fawcett, a 38-year-old war widow and journalist, is sent by the Sydney Morning Times to Newcastle, NSW, where she investigates the fractious world of Trade Union politics.

She stumbles across a plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth during her 1954 Royal Visit to Australia.

Nick Hawes, ex-bomber pilot, wounded soul, poet and ASIO operative is also on the case. They bond over Schopenhauer and (surprisingly) fall in love.

Written in sixteen 5,000 word episodes that mimic the serial novels of the times, Out of Print captures the Zeitgeist of Cold War Australia with its fierce politics and personal lives whose intended trajectories have been fractured by the Second World War.
