'As darkly beautiful as a crime novel can be.'


Presented in association with Fremantle Arts Centre

Hailed by Stephen King as an ‘absolute master’ of his craft, Michael Robotham is one of the world’s most popular crime writers.

He is the only Australian to twice win the coveted UK Gold Dagger award for the best crime novel of the year. A former journalist and ghost-writer Michael now spends his days in his ‘cabana of cruelty’ writing studio, dreaming up unspeakable scenarios.

His latest release, When You Are Mine, introduces Philomena McCarthy, dedicated police officer and daughter of a notorious London gangster. In a live stream conversation from Sydney, Michael will discuss his new book and what it is about the dark side of human nature that readers find so compelling.  

Michael will appear via live stream.

Michael Robotham

Before becoming a novelist, Michael was an investigative journalist working across America, Australia and Britain, and with clinical and forensic psychologists as they helped police investigate complex, psychologically driven crimes. Michael's 2004 debut thriller, The Suspect, sold more than one million copies around the world. It is the first of nine novels featuring beloved Joe O'Loughlin. Good Girl, Bad Girl and When She Was Good are the first two books in a new series featuring forensic psychologist Cyrus Haven.

Michael is the only Australian to win the UK's prestigious Gold Dagger Award twice – for Good Girl, Bad Girl and Life or Death. Good Girl, Bad Girl was also shortlisted for the 2020 Edgar Award for Best Novel. In 2020 The Secrets She Keeps was adapted for television.
