Crime writer, TV presenter, brand ambassador for Jacqui E, goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and now UNICEF Patron for Breastfeeding for the Baby Friendly Health Initiative in Australia – Tara Moss is a modern-day superwoman, and her books are mega-sellers.
Assassin is the last and latest in Tara’s Makedde Vanderwall series – a series that has sold over half a million copies in Australia alone. The series is available in 18 countries and 12 languages, including Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, UK, France, Russia, Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Czech Republic, Poland, Japan, Brazil, Australia and NZ. These dark and glamorous crime thrillers feature one of the most iconic heroines in Australian crime fiction, model-turned-PI Makedde Vanderwall. Mak is a huge favourite with readers, and Tara became the top-selling crime writer in Australia for several years running. Now, after a few years’ break, Mak is back. And this time she’s ready to make her own justice.
Tara Moss famously takes her research for her books to extreme levels, qualifying as a private investigator as well as being both choked to unconsciousness and set on fire in a quest for authenticity. She is also involved with a number of charities and is a supporter of the Stella Prize, a new literary award for women writers in Australia.
