About the Book
In 2005, Marin Katich, living in Croatia under an alias, is being watched. Before the year is out, he has been assaulted, arrested, charged with serious war crimes and locked up in Scheveningen Prison in The Hague, waiting for his case to come before the International War Crimes Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
In Sydney, Anna Rosen, a freelance journalist, is emailed photos of a man she knows to be dead - gunned down in a brutal ambush in Bosnia over a decade ago. A man she'd once loved but who had betrayed her. Is it possible that the photos really are of Marin Katich? And if so, what the hell had happened in 1992?
From Croatia to The Hague to Bosnia and Herzegovina to Sydney, Anna and Marin's intertwined history fuels her determination to tear apart, piece by piece, his secrets, while continuing to keep her own.
In a dangerous pursuit of justice and revenge, navigating the murky world of national and international secret agencies and those who would still be warlords, Anna fights for what she believes in and for those she loves.
'A racy, classy political thriller ...' - Jennifer Byrne
'Extremely readable, fascinating and very cleverly done.' - AustralianCrimeFiction.org on The Twentieth Man.
About the Author
After a cadetship with ABC Radio, Tony Jones joined Four Corners as a reporter in 1985, winning a Walkley award for his expose of the Waterhouse racing dynasty. Soon after the fall of the Berlin Wall, he became an ABC Europe correspondent and covered the civil wars in Yugoslavia, the collapse of communism in Russia, the fall of Kabul to the Mujahideen, the end of the apartheid regime in South Africa and the first US-led invasion of Iraq. After a brief stint back in Australia, he went to Washington as a correspondent and finally returned to become presenter of Lateline, winning three Walkleys for broadcast interviewing.
Today he hosts Q&A on Monday nights. He is married to fellow ABC journalist Sarah Ferguson. The Twentieth Man, his bestselling first thriller, was published in 2017 to acclaim. In Darkness Visible is his second novel.
