    GHOSTLINES won the 2007 Victorian Premier s Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript, before being published by Scribe in 2008 It s the author s first novel, the tale of a profoundly flawed hero journalist Philip Trudeau, a very driven man Unfortunately a lot of that drive is self destructive, but in Gadd s hands, Trudeau is a character who can engender sympathy and maintain the reader s interest and concern despite those myriad and very obvious faults.When a young boy is killed at a level crossing, Trudeau reports it initially as a tragic accident He finds, when forced to dig a little further, that there is a lot to why a young boy was mown down by a train, late at night, on his own, riding his pushbike as if he was very very scared There are ghosts of other presences that night and it s those ghostlines referenced in the name of the book that describes the investigation that Trudeau embarks on There is just the hint of something at the train line, and it often seems that Trudeau is the only person that is seeing the hints That is, until he finds himself in peril, and he knows for sure that there was a lot going on that night.GHOSTLINES is a fascinating book The use of a flawed hero is a well known device nowadays but it s not necessarily easy to pull off an author can...

    An engaging read that I thoroughly enjoyed and would ve missed if the author wasn t attending my local writers festival This reminded me a little of a hard boiled detective story Philip Trudeau is by no means a very likable character, he s flawed, aren t all the bet characters , but Gadd writes him in a way that I still cared what happened to him I wanted to uncover the mystery as he did This has few supernatural elements, which I enjoyed, they aren t too heavy handed and I think they compliment the story I thought the author did a great job of capturing Melbourne, although when Gadd was discussing the novel at the fes...

    Nick Gadd s Ghostlines is a classic kind of detective novel His detective Phillip Trudeau is a jaded, scarred by the world type with a drinking problem, a little Rebus, a little Humprey Bogart as Marlowe The writing, fittingly, is very clean and manly Straight up as it wereWhile the plot with it s underdog expos...

    I m not normally a crime reader, but this is one book which drew me in I think it was the well developed characters, plus the clear setting being from Melbourne, I can picture the scenes which are painted so well , and the realism of the characters An engaging read.
