Winner of the Davitt Award for Best Crime Fiction, A Decline in Prophets is the 2nd book in the award-winning Rowland Sinclair mystery series.

Gripping, beautifully-written and deeply-researched this historical crime fiction series is set in the early 1930s A Rowland Sinclair Novel.

In 1932, the RMS Aquitania embodies all that is gracious and refined, in a world gripped by crisis and doubt.

Returning home on the luxury liner after months abroad, Rowland Sinclair and his companions dine with a suffragette, a Bishop and a retired World Prophet. The Church encounters less orthodox religion in the Aquitania's chandeliered ballroom, where men of God rub shoulders with mystics in dinner suits.

The elegant atmosphere on board is charged with tension, but civility prevails. until people start to die. Then things get a bit awkward.

And Rowland finds himself unwittingly in the centre of it all.

About the Author

Sulari Gentill's first novel, A Few Right Thinking Men, was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize 2011 for Best First Book for our region.

Better than the first book in the series


I was a bit uncertain about reading this book, which is a sequel to a Few Right Thinking Men, but I was pleased that I did. This book is much improved compared to the first. The author has really found her stride. The book is an engaging page turner, and it is such a pleasant change to read a crime and mystery book with Australian characters. After finishing reading this book, I ordered the next in the series with anticipation!

Loved it! The way the author decribes 1930's Sydney and the strength of the characters (particularly Rowly) made it a compelling read.



Very enjoyable book


Having recently discovered Sulari Gentill I am totally hooked on the Rowland Sinclair mysteries. I love the way the author weaves historical facts with fiction.
