“I am a serial killer”, says crime writer Chris Hammer, whose bestselling thriller Scrublands was recently adapted into a miniseries for Stan. “I kill my darlings left, right and centre.”

His knack for stories is once again on show in his latest taut murder mystery, The Seven, set in a farming district where seven founding families have grown ever richer and more powerful over a century.

Join Chris as he shares with Matthew Condon how he crafts whodunnits that are filled with intrigue, emotional depth and an evocative sense of place. Uncover the secrets the Seven are desperate to keep hidden.
