The Malcontenta

Ned Kelly Year: 

This was Maitland’s second novel to feature Detective Sergeant Kathy Kolla and Detective Chief Inspector David Brock of Scotland Yard. In this story Kathy investigates the unnatural death of a young physiotherapist at an exclusive local spa, but the apparent suicide is fraught with complications. Turning to Brock for help, they soon discover that spas aren’t always good for your health…

Barry Maitland is the author of the acclaimed Brock and Kolla series of crime mystery novels set in London, where Barry grew up after his family moved there from Paisley in Scotland where he was born. In 1984 he moved to Australia to head the architecture school at the University of Newcastle in New South Wales, and held that position until 2000. Barry Maitland now writes fiction full time, and lives in the NSW Hunter Valley.
