Rosa Mira Books, Mākaro Press and the University Book Shop Otago are very pleased to invite you to celebrate the launch of Twister by Jane Woodham.

Twister is a contemporary detective novel set in Dunedin one sultry late summer when sinister events are heralded and underscored by a tornado ripping through the city:
“The flu epidemic came for the young and the old, the frail and the weak. Rest homes emptied, filled and emptied again. Teachers worked around vacant desks. Businesses struggled as employees stayed at home, panic buying left supermarket shelves bare, and anyone caught coughing or sneezing quickly found themselves alone. In the unusually muggy heat, windows remained open at night to catch any passing breeze, and the waves at St Clair swelled clean and grey under a heavy cumulous sky.”

University Book Shop Otago, 378 Great King St, Dunedin
