The John Order Series

Greg Cornwell

The fourth John Order eBook novella Order and the Merimbula Mystery has been published.

John Order, a backbencher in the Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly with a penchant for involvement with bodies both dead and alive, is the creation of Greg Cornwell AM, a former MLA of the ACT Assembly.

While sequential, like its predecessors this novella stands alone and continues to chart our bachelor's uneasy retention of his political seat following a narrow by-election win.

These are not tales of international or even national danger, of spies and traitors in the corridors of power. Rather a local politician and accidental amateur sleuth solving deaths while simultaneously fighting off attempts to end his own (political) life. They are easy and occasionally amusing reads with more to follow.

Depictions of parliamentary life and procedures are accurate – or as accurate as such an unpredictable job can be – while the people portrayed are wholly fictitious even if their intentions are not. “
