About the Author
In her native Australia, Jennifer Rowe is widely recognized as an acclaimed novelist and a former editor of The Australian Women’s Weekly. Before creating the Tessa Vance series with Suspect, she wrote four crime novels featuring TV researcher Verity “Birdie” Birdwood, as well as several stand-alone suspense novels. Ms. Rowe has been called the “Agatha Christie of Australia”—and with good reason; she shares Dame Agatha’s passion for complex, puzzle-driven stories populated by vividly depicted heroes, suspects, and villains. Under the name Emily Rodda, Jennifer Rowe has also written stories for children—five of which have won the (Australian) Children’s Book of the Year Award.
