From the Blurb:

Currently Reading - A History of Crime: The Southern Double-Cross, Dinah Holman

Historical New Zealand Crime fiction - with the central thread being corruption, land grabs and bad behaviour over money. Seems like some things never change...

Currently Reading - Follow the Leader, Mel Sherratt

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Did I mention it was a good weekend for getting some reading done? Didn't quite finish this one, but certainly got started on the 2nd book in this series.

From the Blurb:

A man’s body is found on a canal towpath. In his pocket, a plastic magnet in the shape of an E.

Days later, a second victim is found, this time with the letter V tucked into her clothing.

As the body count rises, the eerie, childlike clues point to a pattern that sends DS Allie Shenton and her colleagues into full alert.

Currently Reading - Gun Control, Peter Corris

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

How utterly astounding to realise that this is the 40th Cliff Hardy novel from Peter Corris. (Out in stores 25th February). How gratifying to see the series holding up so strongly. This was a one sitting read on the weekend - but more in a review to come.

From the Blurb:

Currently Reading - Every Word, Ellie Marney

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

There's nothing like a third book in the series being released to make me sit down and catch up with the second. Sigh. My bad.

From the Blurb:

James Mycroft has just left for London to investigate a car accident similar to the one that killed his parents seven years ago...without saying goodbye to Rachel Watts, his 'partner in crime'.

Currently Reading - LOOK CLOSER, Rachel Amphlett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

There are days when the trick of putting the book in one browser window and "work" in the other so you can flick backwards and forwards is very tempting.

From the Blurb:

How far would you go to protect a secret?

How far would you go to expose a lie?

Will Fletcher seems to have it all – perfect job, perfect life. Then in one act of extreme violence, his world is turned upside down.

Currently Reading - The Agatha Christie Book Club, C.A. Larmer

Author Name: 

Something from the much lighter side, set in Sydney in the world of a book club (seemed appropriate as our own version kicked off for this year on Sunday).

From the Blurb:

When Alicia Finlay walks out on her boring old book club and decides to start a new one—one devoted to her favorite mystery writer Agatha Christie—little does she know her new club is about to stumble into a mystery of their own. It's a mystery so baffling it would leave even the Queen of Crime scratching her head...

Currently Reading - The 45% Hangover, Stuart MacBride

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Given the 45% reference I've definitely decided to mention that this short story is from Scotland (and not just the UK :) )

From the Blurb:

It’s the night of the big Referendum, and all Acting Detective Inspector Logan McRae has to do is find a missing ‘No’ campaigner. Should be easy enough…

But, as usual, DCI Steel has plans of her own. As the votes are counted there’s trouble brewing in the pubs and on the streets of Aberdeen.
