A love of adventure and the Australian wilderness has led Tasmanian teacher Peter d’Plesse to write his debut novel Fire Eye. Tasmanian Peter d’Plesse is an educator, adventurer, pilot and now, with his debut novel arriving this April, an author.
Fire Eye, which further expands the swelling ranks of adventure fiction novels from Australian authors, combines elements of d’Plesse’s favourite subjects: the Australian outdoors, aviation and war history.
The female protagonist, Alexander Dulaine hires Jed, an adventurer cum private detective, to help discover the lost resting place of her grandfather’s plane that disappeared during WWII. Dulaine’s interest isn’t purely academic, however. The aircraft is implicated in a Torres Strait legend of a ruby named Fire Eye.
