      This book, the sequel to The Holiday Murders gets off to a flying start with a lively pace and a pleasant prose style. I was engaged from the first page. I’d already been intrigued by a short Prologue, which explained the gist of the previous novel, in what seems to be an emerging series of books featuring Constable Helen Lord and Sergeant Joe Sable, of the newly formed Victorian Homicide Squad. The book is set in 1944, picking up the story left off at the end of the last one. Sgt Sable is des [...]

      This is a really enjoyable and well written follow up to the The Holiday Murders. It literally starts from the days after the gruesome ending to it's predecessor.Gott has created lead characters that are believable, human and genuinely interesting, in particular Inspector Lambert, Detective Joe Sable and Constable Helen Lord. There is an authentic feel to the descriptions of 1940s Melbourne and a lovely portrayal of rural Port Fairy with it's Catholic/Protestant divide and socially conservative [...]

      More!!! Outstanding!An Open Letter to Robert GottDear Mt Gott (or may I call you Robert?)I am writing to complain about your latest book, The Port Fairy Murders. I recently (last night) read this novel and was engaged, enchanted, invested and so involved in this narrative that when I read to the end of page 282 and then there was no more I was bereft! Surely there must be more? What will happen to Joe Stable next? Does poor Tom recover? What about Helen? She will be devastated by that phone call [...]

      A pairing of double murders, a vengeful killer on the loose who seeks redemption in blood, and a quiet town riddled with secrets and sin are the perfect footings for this 1943's period piece of crime fiction set in Port Fairy, a small coastal town in country Victoria, Australia. THE PORT FAIRY MURDERS is the direct sequel to THE HOLIDAY MURDERS, however, as someone who hasn't read the first book, I'm glad to say it didn't hinder the reading experience. Author Robert Gott provides a brief summary [...]

    5. Karen on said:

      The first book, THE HOLIDAY MURDERS marked a change in series, but not style, for author Robert Gott. Much of this author's crime fiction writing has concentrated on historical time periods, in particular around the second world war.This reader was very impressed with the first book. It introduced a range of new characters in the newly formed Homicide department of Victoria Police, from Inspector Titus Lambert (and his wife), Detective Joe Sable and Constable Helen Lord. Events from that book ph [...]

      This isn’t the book I read but it’s close and I want it to count for my good reads goal BOOKS called port fairy ghost stories and it’s like 200 pages of stories about the town I’m staying on holidays in It counts IT DOES!!!!!Okay it was fun and spooky , cool Love bik

    7. Rhondda Powling on said:

      The sequel to "The Holiday Murders", the first book in this series, this novel picks up shortly after the events of that first story. The main characters, Inspector Titus Lambert, and his two subordinates, Constable Helen Lord and Sergeant Joe Sable, are still suffering the effects of those brutal events that occurred at the end of "The Holiday Murders".Two threads run through the story. One follows George Starling who escaped in the earlier book. He is both a hunter and the hunted. Although the [...]

    8. Robin on said:

      I was really disappointed with this book. I hadn't read any of Robert Gott's previous books, but from the glowing reviews, I expected at least a reasonable read.There are two strands to the novel - a dangerous criminal George Starling going after Detective Joe Sable and an unrelated double murder in Port Fairy. However I found the plot plodding and laborious - George Starling seemed to take forever to track down Joe and for a dangerous criminal, didn't seem to have much of a clue as to how to go [...]

      This novel will appeal to people who read for character and setting. There is an abundance of historical detail and background information about characters so it will appeal to lovers of detail, while for story oriented readers, it at times will be a tough read. This is the second in a series. I did not read the first, and there were deliberate spoilers at the start of this novel so I don't need to read the first in the series. Keep this in mind if you want to read the series. This novel is not [...]

      A trip to Port Fairy and a drink at The Stump (properly called in this book by its official name, the Caledonian) will never be the same again! Robert Gott sets the scene in 1940s Melbourne, Warrnambool and Port Fairy with meticulous detail and a cast of characters who are in turns endearing, psychotic and downright frightening. A superb thriller. Now looking forward to catching up with the first in the series, The Holiday Murders.

    11. Jennifer on said:

      I enjoyed this book as much as the first. I have read other reviewers who said they found the connection between the events in Melbourne and those in Port Fairy tenuous and implausible. I would heartily disagree with this. Considering that this is of the 'police procedural' genre, I find it entirely realistic. Police don't have one job at a time on the boil. They have a number of them, so it's not unbelievable that they would have to travel to work on another matter. I would say it lends a much [...]

    12. Kerrie on said:

      I've discovered that this is the first novel by Robert Gott that I've read. THE HOLIDAY MURDERS was shortlisted for Best Fiction on the Ned Kelly Awards, but somehow I just never got around to reading it. As THE PORT FAIRY MURDERS is a sequel to that title, and the plot takes in some unfinished business from it, it is probably best to read them in order, but obviously I haven't done that. There are plenty of hints about what happened in the first title, and the characters are well developed.Ther [...]

      I did not read the first book in this series but a two page prologue gave the background to the continuing story of the Melbourne Homicide squad in 1943 and their attempts to capture the very un-nice George Starling.A lot of good historic stuff with WWII political extremists, food shortages, coal fuelled cars, dirt roads to remote towns, tensions between Catholic/CofE/Presbyterian/Masons, the views on homosexuality, role of women, the haves and have nots, etc. The characters are strong and havin [...]

    14. Catherine on said:

      Perhaps it was because I read it so soon after the Holiday Murders, but this paled in comparison. I felt the first chapters were trying to fill us in on the history of the previous book; the middle moved around between some increasingly absurd and disperate plot elements; and the ending: SRSLY? It felt as if Gott was a) given a 10 page warning to wind it up, and/or b) desperately trying to get us to buy the (I'm told) pending third novel.Don't get me wrong, I will read the third one too, but thi [...]

    15. Elisa Grassa on said:

      Good book and just as good as The Holiday Murders.Enjoy the characters Helen, Joe, Titus and Maude.Oh and George Starling. Love the historical Melbourne, Port Fairy, plus the local suburbs of Brunswick and Coburg.Can't wait for the next one, Robert Gott.

    16. Karen on said:

      This wasn't a bad read, and follows on nicely from the previous book. The ending, however, was astoundingly disappointing, and I can only guess that there is a further book to the tale.

    17. Shane Emmons on said:

      Enjoyable but could have been a bit more of a page turner.

    18. Ann Tonks on said:

      Deeply frustrating book. On the one hand, some great characters and interesting story telling. On the other hand, it feels completely and unnecessarily unfinished.

    19. Suzie on said:

      3 1/2 stars. Sequel to The Holiday Murders. Set partly in Port Fairy, this was an interesting crime story. It ended quite abruptly, even though it set up for the next book in the series
