Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Sometimes I get to sneak in a book or two from the other hemisphere :) although for some reason I got the second book before this one, so now I've sorted that mess out and will start what's a very highly acclaimed series in order. For once.

Currently Reading - Swimming in the Dark, Paddy Richardson

Author Name: 

Such a fabulous author of thrillers, I always end up kicking myself when I let these books linger too long.

From the Blurb:

A mesmerising tale of three women who must overcome the past and beat the odds to find hope for the future.

Amnesia, Peter Carey

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

A thriller from Australian writer Peter Carey, somebody who is more known for their "literary" output than their genre work. Interesting to see how a well known non-genre writer approaches something different like a thriller styled novel.

The Victorian gossipmongers called them The Petticoat Men. But to young widow Mattie Stacey, they are Freddie and Ernest, her gentlemen lodgers.
