Sulari Gentill’s historical crime fiction has attracted fans around the world and won several awards. Her leading man, the charming, witty Rowland Sinclair, is the youngest of the respectable and influential Sinclair family. Rowly is seen as the black sheep among his siblings because he’s an artist. The Rowland Sinclair Mysteries are set in the 1930s, in Sydney and overseas. The first book in the so far 10 book series is A Few Right Thinking Men. I am fascinated about what it must be like to have a fictional character be such an important part of an author’s life and who better to ask that Sulari! ----Your host is Emily WebbEmily is the author of Angels of Death: Doctors and Nurses Who KillThanks to Sulari GentillPurchase A Few Right Thinking Men in our Bookshop Listen on Apple PodcastsListen on Google PodcastsListen on SpotifyThank you for listening!See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Review Season: All The Tears in China by Sulari Gentill - 2020 2nd Place
Death of the Reader
Sulari Gentill’s Rowland Sinclair series is one of the strongest franchise detectives of the modern day, for our money. The 1930s playboy son of a wool-shearing fortune has travelled the world and made many enemies in Gentill’s many allegories to the looming return of fascism and authoritarianism to our modern day. Coming in second for Review Season 2020 is the ninth entry in the series, All The Tears in China. After his older brother Wilfred sends Rowland to delay a doomed deal with Japanese buyers in Shanghai, Rowland grabs a couple of his closest confidants for what promises to be a relaxing holiday. When Rowland is nearly kidnapped moments after arriving, he realises he’s once again wrapped up in something larger and sets about trying to figure it out.

As Rowland is put to hell and back again by the bloodhound Inspector Randolph over the death of Bertie Middleton, hope of catching the true criminal seems to dwindle. Taking a gruesome look inside a British prison in 1930s Shanghai, will Herd's solution be enough to save Rowland from his grizzly death in the confronting conclusion. We're joined one last time by Sulari herself, talking about how to make an engaging mystery when the answer is implied in the context, and the future of the franchise and some insights on the latest Rowland Sinclair book, A Testament of Character.
All The Tears in China by Sulari Gentill - Part Two
Death of the Reader
We discuss chapters 15-27 of All The Tears In China by Sulari Gentill. As the scale of crime escalates drastically and Rowland finds himself on the receiving end of explosions and high-speed violins. Pressure mounts to cave to business demands from the traders he was sent to delay, Rowland begins to doubt that he'll be capable of carrying out the mission his brother sent him for. With the Police only getting more aggressive, can Rowland solve the crime before the police take him in, and will they even believe his solution? Herds is on the case with the broadest solution we've seen yet on the show. We're also joined by author Sulari Gentill herself to talk about the real criminal underworld of 1930s Shanghai, and the beautiful contradictions that led to the portrayal of the Butler Wing Zau.
