Tony Jones, one of Australia’s most admired journalists, will discuss his new political thriller In Darkness Visible at Chatswood Library on Wednesday 6 November 2019 at 12.30pm.

Blurring the lines between fiction and political reality, In Darkness Visible is an intriguing, gripping and believable thriller.

In 2005, Marin Katich, living in Croatia under an alias, is being watched. Before the year is out, he has been assaulted, arrested, charged with serious war crimes and locked up in Scheveningen Prison in The Hague.

In Sydney, Anna Rosen, a freelance journalist, is emailed photos of a man she knows to be dead - gunned down in a brutal ambush in Bosnia over a decade ago. A man she'd once loved but who had betrayed her. Is it possible that the photos really are of Marin Katich? And if so, what the hell had happened in 1992?

After a cadetship with ABC Radio, Tony Jones joined Four Corners as a reporter in 1985, winning a Walkley award for his expose of the Waterhouse racing dynasty. Soon after the fall of the Berlin Wall, he became an ABC Europe correspondent and covered the civil wars in Yugoslavia, the collapse of communism in Russia, the fall of Kabul to the Mujahideen, the end of the apartheid regime in South Africa and the first US-led invasion of Iraq.

He later became presenter of Lateline, winning three Walkleys for broadcast interviewing. Today he hosts Q&A on Monday nights.

Constant Reader Bookshop will provide copies of the author’s book for sale on the day.
