An Evening with Steve Sailah

Book launch

Join Steve, former ABC foreign correspondent and executive producer of 'The World Today' to hear about his debut novel 'A Fatal Tide'. After an extraordinary twenty-six year career with the ABC as foreign correspondent and executive producer of The World Today, Steve is releasing his debut novel A Fatal Tide. Having been a friend to several Gallipoli veterans, returned to the battlefields with a number of them on the 75th anniversary of the first ANZAC landing, and released the ABC documentary Stories from Gallipoli, Steve continues to strive to understand what it was really like for young Australians to leave home to become a part of WWI. In A Fatal Tide it is 1915, and Thomas Clare and his best friend Snow go to war to solve the murder of his father. The only clues – a hidden wartime document and the imprint on an army boot on the victim’s face – have led the pair from the safety of Queensland to the blood-soaked hills of Gallipoli.
