After narrowly escaping Nazi terror, Rowland Sinclair and his companions land in London, believing they are safe. But they are wrong. A bizarre murder plunges the hapless Australians into a queer world of British aristocracy, Fascist Blackshirts, illicit love, scandal and spies. A world where gentlemen are not always what they are dressed up to be.

About the Author

Sulari set out to study astrophysics, ended up graduating in law, and later abandoned her legal career to write books instead of contacts. When the mood takes her, she paints, although she maintains that she does so only well enough to know that she should write. She grows French black truffles on her farm in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains of NSW, which she shares with her young family and several animals... the farm, not the truffles. Sulari was recently offered a Varuna Fellowship. She was commended in the Fellowship of Australian Writers 2008 Jim Hamilton Award, long-listed for the Hachette/QLD writers Centre Australian Manuscript Development Program for fiction writers, and shortlisted for the 2008 New Holland Publishers and NSW Writers Centre Genre Fiction Award. She has been writing for a few years, but thinking about it most of her life. She's pretty sure now that writing is what she is supposed to do. A Few Right Thinking Men is her debut novel.

      Comments about Gentlemen Formerly Dressed:

      Very plausible story and well knitted round the characters, Rowly Sinclair and the 'hangers on' Edna, Milton and Clyde and of course the bro. Wilfred. England in the 1930's for the top echelon of the population was a fun place/secretive in what they did in their specialist clubs etc. and is beautifully presented. No obnoxious language and well written in the Queens English. Great Author on the fifth book of the series and can be read individually without any reference to previous books. The relationship between the brothers, Wilfred and Rowly is also wonderfully read.
      All in all a wonderful book and the fictitious characters live in your mind till the next book arrives - hopefully soon.
