I am reading Bay of Fires
by Poppy Gee. It is a murder mystery set in Tasmania.
My main problem with the book is that the author has blatantly based her plot on two well-known events that occurred in Tasmania in the 1990s - the murder of Italian tourist Victoria Cafasso and the disappearance of German tourist Nancy Grunwaldt, both of which are unsolved to this day. The similarities between the novel and the true life stories are so great that I feel like I am being dragged out of the story and thinking of Nancy and Victoria rather than the characters of Chloe and Anja. This probably would not be a problem for non-Tasmanians.
