And the Dance Goes On

Tony Brennan

Murder and Mystery – Sydney Winter 1942

It is the winter of 1942. In the wartime blackout, a midnight bus breaks down near the small, semi-rural town of Bexford North, 30 miles from Sydney. Outside the bus, a passenger screams as torchlight fall on the body of a soldier stabbed to death. Inspector Peters is summoned to solve the mystery, but soon another more horrific murder follows.

In the midst of a country at war and a town in terror, the fabric of this close-knit and respectable community is torn asunder. Inspector Peters struggles through the complexities of the lives and attitudes of the villagers: their loves, jealousies, fears, prejudices, their silent heroism and, equally, their silent anguish and despair — all lived out against an overwhelming fear of invasion.

With the help of the eccentric Annie Watson, Inspector Peters arrives at a startling truth.

War continues, life returns to normal ...and the Dance Goes On.


About the Author

Tony Brennan gained Post Grad degrees from University and spent some years lecturing in English Lit and then tutoring in Abnormal Psychology. He wrote academic articles then turned to Fiction. He began with Short Stories and his first book, 'Is There Anyone There?' was accepted and published by Ginninderra Press in 2016 which surprised him greatly.

With this boost to his ego he set about writing a six part Mystery series, called the 'Annie Watson Mysteries,' on the situation of those who were left at home during WW2. He spent a couple of years researching this period which changed the face of Australia. The first book in the series, 'And The Dance Goes On' was published early 2017 while the second book in the series, 'The Black Lamb'  was released in August 2017, and his third book, 'The Blight of Lady Emily' published November 2017.  'Eminently Respectable Capers' which is just for fun, is also available.
