Praise

“In Billie Walker, Moss has conjured up one kick-ass 1940s heroine: a tough-talking, glamorous feminist who’s as adept with a pistol as she is on the dance floor, haunted by a tragic past, and unafraid to take on the darkest of foes. An artful, original take on noir suspense that resonates in today’s times.”
—Fiona Davis, nationally bestselling author of The Chelsea Girls
 
“A cracking thriller, with a marvelous, strong, flamboyant heroine.”
—Joanne Harris, New York Times bestselling author of Chocolat and Five Quarters of the Orange
 
“Enough page-turning suspense to keep you up reading far later than you intended!”
—Peter James, New York Times bestselling author
 
“A terrific read!”
—Lynda La Plante, internationally bestselling author
 
“Her novels are completely gripping and entertaining from beginning to end.”
—Hugh Jackman
 
“I so enjoyed getting to know Tara Moss’s wonderful new character, Billie Walker, in her 1940s Sydney-set mystery [The War Widow]. Immersive, well-paced, entertaining, thoughtful – so enjoyable!”
—Angela Meyer, award-winning author of Joan Smokes and A Superior Spectre
 
“Moss’s ultra-cool prose and whip-smart plotting pull you along at cracking pace until suddenly you look up and realize with a gulp how deep you’ve gone and how very dark it is down there.”
—Emily Maguire, author of Taming the Beast

“True to its era down to the very fabric around Billie’s shoulders, this is a smartmouthed shot straight to the chest.”
Readings (Australia)
 
“Tara Moss has created a streetwise, seductive and staunchly feminist sleuth who even darns her own stockings…[Billie Walker] is a former war correspondent, whose photojournalist husband is missing, presumed dead…The war might be over, but the novel is deeply interested in its wreckage.”
The Sun-Herald (Sydney)
 
“Tara Moss’s sympathy for the oppressed and voiceless runs firmly through this tale of underworld crime, thuggery, cruelty and greed. It is a pleasure to find women steering this story as heroines not sidekicks. One very much hopes that [The War Widow] is the first of many Billie Walker mysteries and that, in time, our plucky heroine, her lips daubed with Tussy’s Fighting Red, will find her way onto a screen near us.”
—Living Arts Canberra
 
“A cracking thriller, with a marvellous, strong, flamboyant heroine.”
—Joanne Harris, award-winning author of Chocolat

“I so enjoyed getting to know Tara Moss’s wonderful new character, Billie Walker, in 1940s Sydney-set mystery [The War Widow]. Immersive, well-paced, entertaining, thoughtful – so enjoyable!”
