Melbourne's first serial killer is at work and only one man can stop him.

It's 1967, the summer of love, and in swinging Melbourne Detective Sergeant Charlie Berlin has been hauled out of exile in the Fraud Squad to investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl, the daughter of a powerful and politically connected property developer. As Berlin's inquiries uncover more missing girls he gets an uneasy feeling he may be dealing with the city's first serial killer.

Berlin's investigation leads him through inner-city discothèques, hip photographic studios, the emerging drug culture and into the seedy back streets of St Kilda. The investigation also brings up ghosts of Berlin's past, disturbing memories of the casual murder of a young woman he witnessed in dying days of WW11.

As in war, some victories come at a terrible cost and Berlin will have to face an awful truth and endure an unimaginable loss before his investigation is over.

St. Kilda Blues is the third novel in the Charlie Berlin series. Both previous novels, The Diggers Rest Hotel and Blackwattle Creek, won the Ned Kelly Award for Best Fiction in 2011 and 2013 respectively.

      Comments about St Kilda Blues:

      I loved this book! It is extremely well-written, with very engaging characters. It drags the reader in, and is a page turner. This is the third book in the Xavier Berlin series, and each one is better than the one before. There is also a surprising plot twist, which really grabbed my emotions. My only concern is that each book in this series is set about 10 years apart, which suggests that there can only be about 2 more before Berlin is retired!
