Dilemma: The Scobie Malone Novels, 16 | [Jon Cleary]

Dilemma: The Scobie Malone Novels, 16

Australian detective Scobie Malone is asked to investigate what seems like an easy case: Norma Glaze has been strangled in her bedroom and her husband Ron has disappeared. What appears cut-and-dry on the surface is complicated by the fact that the night before involved a one-night stand and a killer with a twisted right hand. Four years later, Malone finds and arrests Ron Glaze in a bush town, but the man insists he is innocent even as the evidence makes his conviction in court a cinch.

Publisher's Summary

Australian detective Scobie Malone is asked to investigate what seems like an easy case: Norma Glaze has been strangled in her bedroom and her husband Ron has disappeared. What appears cut-and-dry on the surface is complicated by the fact that the night before involved a one-night stand and a killer with a twisted right hand.

Four years later, Malone finds and arrests Ron Glaze in a bush town, but the man insists he is innocent even as the evidence makes his conviction in court a cinch. The young prosecutor, Tim Pierpont, is a well-respected community member, too, which makes for an easy sentence of Glaze's guilt.

Meanwhile, the capital city of Sydney is dealing with the kidnapping of a child model, Lucybelle Vanheusen, and her hysterical family. Malone doesn't take the case seriously until a body turns up - and only then does Malone realize that Lucybelle's family life does not at all resemble his own caring household. Finally, a witness comes forward in the Glaze case and implicates a new suspect - and the deeper that Malone digs into both murders, the more he wishes he had not.

    "Another fabulous Scobie Malone story"
    Would you listen to Dilemma again? Why?

    Yes - the dilemna Scobie was in was a moral one that we all need to come to terms with


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dilemma?

    The end of the penultimate chapter set in the Blue Mountains


    Have you listened to any of Christian Rodska’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Brilliant as usual and almost managed to pronounce local place names correctly although "Macquarie" was very weird!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Any interaction with Lisa and the children - particularly important in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Did nothing all day but listen to this book - bother the house work - I just wanted to her what happened. Brilliant
