About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'This is a gripping novel; an unromanticised travel guide to today's Thailand; a critique of Western missionary endeavours; and a warning to naive young people who stumble into volunteer work without the necessary skills.' Australian Bookseller & Publisher 'This page-turner hooks you in from the start. 4 stars' Cosmopolitan 'Angela Savage must have to be one of the most talented authors I have come across, and her novel The Half-Child does not disappoint ... It is not only a crime novel, but a mixture of genres rolled into one. There is romance, heartache and a cultural synopsis of Thailand - the good and bad. Savage has written a well-researched piece ...' Launceston Examiner 'One of the most satisfying aspects of this series is its sense of place ... Stylish and witty ... with rich characterisation and the portrait of a complex culture under threat from both within and without. Savage has an important point to make.' Sydney Morning Herald 'Savage not only skillfully entertains her readers but also makes us think poignantly and enlighteningly about the big questions of equality and exploitation, sacrifice and the true nature of courage. 5 stars.' Adelaide Advertiser Funny, heart-wrenching and informative, Savage's heroine is someone readers will want to share a beer with. 4 Stars.' Big Issue
