A Death in the Making: A Tale of the 25th Century

Inge Meldgaard
Free sample

When the body of a young woman is found in an isolated bushland area near the small town of Stanthorpe, in Queensland, Australia, the Brisbane Peacekeeping Force is called in to assist with the investigation. Freddi, a peacekeeper originally from Jamaica, and her bondmate Meng Jarrah, a forensics expert, are accompanied by their cat, Shela, who uses her telepathic powers to help solve this increasingly unusual case. Set in the year 2456, this sequel to ‘The Cicada’ steps back into the past to reveal who the dead woman was…and her secrets. Fast paced, and at times shocking, this is a story of despair, betrayal, loss and redemption - a story of darkness and of the power of love.

About the author

Born in Denmark, my family and I moved to Australia in 1957, where I grew up in the small country town of Yallourn. After finishing school in 1970, I moved to Melbourne to attend Monash University and studied for a Bachelor of Science in botany and genetics. From 1975 to 1984, I worked in a variety of professions, including youth work, teaching, and as a laboratory technician. Deciding to return to study, I completed a Graduate Diploma in applied social research at Swinburne University in Melbourne, then worked in politics and community development until I once again returned to study at Swinburne, this time obtaining a Graduate Diploma in Business Information Technology in 1989. Since then, until retirement in 2006, I worked in the field of information technology, first as a software developer and business analyst with a large corporation, and then in computer support, finally spending nine years as a departmental IT Manager with Monash University. I now live in the Dandenong Ranges on the outskirts of Melbourne, and since retiring have spent more time enjoying photography and art, writing novels and an illustrated children’s book, short stories and poetry. My other life-long interests include gardening, interior decoration and the appreciation of pre-WWII architecture. Since I was a child, I have managed to acquire stray cats, sometimes having as many as six, and it is this intimate knowledge of cats and their fascinating behaviour that has allowed me to feature them in my mystery novels. More recently, I have developed a keen interest in the birds and wildlife living in my large garden, and they are the inspiration for my children’s book, ‘Boggle the Gymboot Bird’, which was illustrated by a young friend, Lucy Gao, who is currently a student at Monash University in Melbourne.
