Sub-genre: , , , ,

Ged Gillmore grew up in the Midlands of England before moving to London where he completed degrees in languages and literature at the University of London. Fancying a change to sunnier climes, Ged made the leap to Sydney in early 2004.

These days, when he’s not falling off his surfboard at Bondi or dabbling with a day job which pays the bills, he sits at his laptop and bashes out fiction.

In October 2017, Ged released HEADLAND, the first book in the ‘Bill Murdoch Mystery’ series. This series tracks the adventures of Bill Murdoch, an English bad boy who finds himself thrust into the role of the world’s most reluctant private investigator. Murdoch’s adventures continue in the sequels CLASS ACT and BASE NATURE.

In 2018, CLASS ACT was nominated for a Ned Kelly Award in the ‘Best Crime Fiction’ category (Australia’s most prestigious crime writing prize).
