Cops, Crooks, Courts & Spooks


Book launch with Ray Clift.

Wednesday 29 July, 6.30-7.30pm.

Books based on real crimes have become very popular with our borrowers.

In Cops, Crooks, Courts & Spooks, prolific local author Ray Clift adds to his collection of stories, based on his experiences in law enforcement.  His stories are full of down-to-earth humour and give us a unique portrayal of Adelaide’s social history.  Ray also delves into the realm of the supernatural, discussing his encounters with ghosts (which are often very funny) and his dealings with a ‘spirit guide’.

Ray is a retired police officer with the South Australian Police Force who has received numerous citations during his career. He has also served in the Army Reserves, working mainly in Army Intelligence.  Following his retirement from the police force, Ray worked as a court sheriff’s office in Adelaide’s northern suburbs of Adelaide.

If you are a fan of true crime stories, you might enjoy reading Ray Clift’s work.

A wine and cheese supper will be served.

This event will  be held in the Relaxed Reading Area, City of Tea Tree Gully Library.

Bookings are essential.  Book online or telephone 8397 7333.
