Goulburn is set for some mystery and intrigue when author Tim Ayliffe comes to town.
The Australian crime author will be at Goulburn Mulwaree Library on Saturday to talk about his latest novel, The Enemy Within.
Ayliffe is an Australian author whose crime-thriller novels take readers into the murky worlds of terrorism, international espionage, white supremacism and global power games.
Ayliffe blends so much truth in his thrillers that it's difficult to tell where fact becomes fiction. All of his books feature his main character, former war correspondent, John Bailey.
In The Enemy Within, someone wants to stop Bailey doing what he does best - exposing the truth. He has been investigating the rise of a global white supremacist group and suspects that a notorious neo- Nazi in the United States has been directing deadly racist attacks on Sydney's streets.
When the body of one of his key sources washes up on a nearby beach, it's clear Bailey and anyone helping him have become targets.
Bailey reaches out to a ruthless old friend - CIA veteran, Ronnie Johnson - to lure the enemy from the shadows. An enemy who thought they were untouchable. Until now.
Tim Ayliffe has been a journalist for more than 20 years and is the Managing Editor of Television and Video for ABC News and the former Executive Producer of News Breakfast.
He has travelled widely, and before joining the ABC he worked in London for British Sky News. A few years ago he turned his hand to writing global crime thrillers featuring former foreign correspondent John Bailey.
He is the author of the crime novels - The Greater Good, State of Fear and The Enemy Within. When he's not writing or chasing news stories, Tim spends time at his home in Sydney, riding bikes, and surfing.
The talk will begin at 11:30am on Saturday November 27, held in the Goulburn Mulwaree Library, and will be followed by a light lunch. Books will be available for sale through The Bookshop Bowral and signed by the author.
The session is free, but bookings are essential and can be made at www.trybooking.com/BTUMW or by contacting the Library on (02) 4823 4435.
