Book Launch | ‘Double Jeopardy’ by Stef Harris

July 26, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us and Quentin Wilson Publishing for the Ōtautahi launch of this thrilling new crime novel, launched by Edmund Bohan. All welcome – arrive from 5.30pm for a 6pm start. Please RSVP to rsvp@scorpiobooks.co.nz for catering purposes.



Frank Winter is an ex-cop, a former hard-boiled Boston detective with a soft centre living in curmudgeonly retirement with his beloved dog, Dolly. But when his daughter’s killer is released on parole, Frank’s back, a man on a mission, and it’s yesterday once more. But first, Frank’s got a bunch of favours to call in. Throw in a rookie minder cop who’s great with computers but scared of guns, and help from the desirable Destiny, whose past is even murkier than Frank’s… hell, you just know things will go according to plan. Strong characters, well-paced action, dark humour and cracking dialogue make Double Jeopardy an old-school crime novel with a surprisingly modern twist.



Stef Harris is an award-winning author and film-maker, and is also a frontline police officer, having served for over 30 years in Wellington, Christchurch and Nelson. Double Jeopardy is his third novel.
