With comparisons to Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlam, Greg Barron’s fast-paced thrillers are nicely complemented by his true stories of the Australian outback. His love of the less populated regions of his home country is as clear in his characters as it is on his social media pages. Barron has a background in counter-terrorism, used to full effect in his thrillers to give them an intelligent and highly relevant edge.
Greg Barron’s debut novel, Rotten Gods, is the first in his Marika Hartmann series following an Australian intelligence agent through the threat of new age terrorism, and immediately delve into complex themes such as trying to understand the motives of different organisations trying to achieve contradictory outcomes.
Following the success of his thrillers, Greg Barron has turned to home in his more recent releases, including Galloping Jones: And Other True Stories From Australia’s History, and Camp Leichardt, another thriller, but this time based on an NT police officer, and with far fewer commandos or taipan gunships. However, just in case his fans missed those types of thrills from his earlier books, The Hammer of Ramenskoye: A Short Thriller should sate their appetite for action.
Greg Barron is originally from Northern New South Wales, but has travelled to the majority of inhabited continents, and crossed Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory by foot. His wide cultural experiences and dedication to research for his novels has set him up for many accolades and comparisons with his own idols.
