Hazel Edwards shares her literary tourism on “The Ghan”
A Quiet Flame
Location(s): Berlin, Buenos Aires
Era(s): 1930s, 1950s
The action switches largely between Berlin in 1932 – and Bernie’s last abandoned case as a police officer when the mutilated body of a spastic teenage girl is discovered – and Buenos Aires in 1950 where he is invited to investigate a case with striking similarities. Many twists lie ahead as the investigations come together until the final shocking revelation.
