Wishart's book back in Whitcoulls stores

3:32 pm on 30 January 2016

The author of a new book on the murder of Ben Smart and Olivia Hope says it's now back on the shelves at a national bookstore chain after briefly being pulled from sale because of a legal threat.

Ian Wishart's book Elementary was published yesterday but was removed from some Whitcoulls stores a few hours later, after another author, Keith Hunter, said he was considering legal action.

Mr Wishart said Whitcoulls suspended sales while management took advice from its legal team but other stores continued to sell the book.
