Tasting The Wind

Posted on: February 19, 2009

       ‘Tasting the Wind’ is now available!



                       Christmas Eve, 1976: a man dies, tied to his bed in a Victorian Mental Institution…Andrew saw what happened. Eddie saw what happened. But their severe learning disabilities prevent them from communicating what they have seen.

 Ten years later, the hospital is destined for closure and Andrew and Eddie move to a bungalow in the community.

  Enter Martin Peach, who has come into care work for all the wrong reasons. And as if the challenge of helping six severely disabled people settle into a sometimes hostile community is not enough, his new manager, ex-nurse Della Belk, has a deadly secret which links her to the new residents…


 Can Martin and his colleagues put together the fragmented clues about Andrew and Eddie’s  pasts before one of them becomes the next victim?

Where can I buy Tasting the Wind in Australia

Hi Jo,
Firstly, thank you so much for your interest. This means a great deal as there is a view that POD books are only ever bought by the author’s family and friends.

Tasting the Wind is available in Australia from ‘The Nile.’

To be honest it is pricier than over here, but if you buy it with other books you will get free shipping. I would be interested to know how you go on with this ( my e-mail is )

Thanks again


Hi Jo and Allan;

Just for your information, the UK Bookdepository has free shipping “Worldwide.” Most of my Aussie friends buy books from them. See their website noted below:

Best Regards,

Waheed (Wally) Rabbani
Grimsby, Ontario, Canada
Author of, The Azadi Trilogy, Book I: Doctor Margaret’s Sea Chest
Available at all Amazon, B&N and other Bookstores

Thanks very much for that Wally. I’d only been looking at Australian sellers, and the one I found more than doubled the price of the book. That is great news.
