Medea’s Curse:

Shortlisted for the 2016 Davitt awards

“A psychological thriller with all the ingredients” Jennifer Byrne Australian Women’s Weekly February 2015

“Racy Psychiatrist Offers New Twist on Crime” Herald Sun weekend Feb 7th Anne Buist has ticked all the boxes with her creation…Buist brings her considerable experience as a perinatal psychiatrist to bear in this novel…giving it authenticity and gravitas

“Candice Fox and Anne Buist deliver deadly thrills” by Sue Turnbull: “feminism and the crime novel have come a long way”  SMH/The Age here

Medea’s Curse is a gripping ride of crime and tension, with a Lisbeth Salander-like lead roaring through danger and intrigue at a million miles an hour.’

Adelaide Advertiser

‘Buist has used her twenty-five years’ experience in perinatal psychiatry to good effect in her first psychological thriller…King is a lively new character with a good mix of appealing characteristics and interesting flaws.’

Sydney Morning Herald

Anne Buist writes with authority and confidence…a gritty and noir novel” Fairdinkum Crime here

“…likely to be very successful and the start of a series with the potential to evolve with absorbing twists and turns, inspired by the author’s foresnic experience.” Ian Freckleton, QC, Journal of Psychiatry, Psychology and the Law Vol 15, 2015 HERE

“Buist …uses her 25 years experience to good effect in her first psychological thriller…King is a lively new character with a good mixture of appealing characteristics and interesting flaws.” Jeffrey Popple SMH 9.3.15 here

“One of the highlights of Medea’s Curse is the psychiatric detail, from the politics of a differential diagnosis on a forensic ward, to the way Buist artfully moves her plot through the revelations and resistances of Natalie’s sessions with her patients….(it appeals because) the knowledge it brings to the story and the empathy it generates for characters caught in tragic predicaments.” Ed Wright,  The Australian, March 7th 2015

“Meet Natalie King, a kickass forensic psychiatrist who rides  Ducati and plays in a rock band. Buist – a perinatal psychiatrist – crafts an intelligent thriller about mothers who kill.” WHO March 30 2015

“…an easy fast-paced read which you won’t want to put down” The Big Book Club

an effective and engaging crime novel, that handles its issues compassionately, builds tension well and has a fascinating, flawed protagonist. It will be interesting to see what Anne Buist (and Natalie King) do next.’ Aus Crime Review April here

“A boost for Buist” by Jason Steger March 2015 here

 

Launched Feb 5th at Provincial Hotel in association with Brunswick St Bookstore
In a lovely upstairs space over a glass of champagne and looking out open windows into the bustle and grunge of Fitzroy, not far from the stomping ground of Medea’s Curse heroine/protagonist Natalie King, Mandy Brett (Text publishing senior editor) and Angela Savage (crime fiction author) officially launched Medea’s Curse. The enthralled group are friends, family, writer’s (both Anne Buist’s writing group and her husband Graeme Simsion’s writers and screenplay group as well as published authors Sue Williams, Tim Lowe, Martien Snellen (nonfiction- also a psychiatrist!) and Antoni Jach(also writer’s group co-ordinator)) and friends including two from primary school, three from secondary, one from medicine and a strong cohort of psychiatrists and Austin Health staff–some of which I have been working with for over 20 years. Thank you all!
