Robert Schofield is back with another thriller. After his debut novel Heist comes Marble Bar, a tale told in the hottest town in Australia.


Marble Bar synopsis

Gareth Ford, with a cloud still hanging over him because of his involvement in the Gwardar Gold Heist, has decided to make a new beginning in the iron mines of Newman. But when he returns home from the night shift and finds his flatmate has been murdered, suspicion quickly falls upon him. He, however, fears he himself was the real target and soon discovers he is being tailed. He summons his old ally from the Gold Squad, DC Rose Kavanagh, and soon they find themselves in Marble Bar, searching for the Gwardar Gold and being pursued by a variety of desperadoes, each with their own agendas.

Having received a degree in engineering from Cambridge University, Robert has worked as a structural engineering consultant, including Madrid Airport.

He then traveled to Australia, and finding no call for creative architectural engineering in Perth, he adapted his skills to the mining and offshore industries.

Whatever time he has left after working, Robert spends writing, wrangling three young children, reading and kayaking on the Blackwood River.
