Libraries After Dark Author Event - Vikki Petraitis

Join Glenelg Libraries for an in-conversation event with Vikki Petraitis the winner of the inaugural Allen & Unwin Crime Prize for novel The Unbelieved.
When Senior Detective Antigone Pollard moves to the coastal town of Deception Bay, she is still in shock and grief. Back in Melbourne, one of her cases had gone catastrophically wrong, and to escape the guilt and the haunting memories, she'd requested a transfer to the quiet town she'd grown up in.


But there are some things you can't run from. The women of Deception Bay are scared and the law is not on their side. The nightmare has followed her home.
Chilling, timely and gripping, The Unbelieved takes us behind the headlines to a small-town world that is all too real - and introduces us to a brilliant new voice in crime fiction.


Vikki Petraitis is best known for her true crime books including the bestselling book The Frankston Murders, and The Phillip Island Murder, which has been featured in several TV shows and podcasts.


In recent years, she has made two hugely successful podcast series with Casefile Presents, which have topped charts around the world and been downloaded millions of times. She is now working with the Casefile team developing new true crime projects.


Vikki began a PhD in Creative Writing at La Trobe University in 2017 in order to continue to expand her writing skills. She has brought her thirty years of true crime writing and investigating to create her first work of crime fiction.
