Just Arrived - In the Morning I'll Be Gone, Adrian McKinty

Author Name: 

Can't tell you how pleased I was to open up the parcels this morning and find this gem - although it is a bit bittersweet, what with it being the third book in the Troubles Trilogy. Still - it's a long weekend coming up, and I'm pretty sure that's a slight ... <cough> ... I feel coming on, which might mean that a few engagements might <cough> have to be cancelled as I'd swear this is a tad of a summer <cough> cold I can feel coming on...

CR - Murder in Mississippi, John Safran

Author Name: 

Been wanting to read this book for an age now - and needed a break from fiction

CR - Origin: Wolf Creek Book 1

It's too hot to sleep much anyway so why not frighten myself comprehensively as well...

From the Blurb:

Nature vs nurture turns out to be a bloodbath

The wide open outback offers plenty of space for someone to hide. Or to hide a body.

When wiry youngster Mick Taylor starts as a jackaroo at a remote Western Australian sheep station, he tries to keep his head down among the rough company of the farmhands. But he can't keep the devils inside him hidden for long.

CR - Silent Kill, Peter Corris

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Cricket... Cliff Hardy... Cricket... Cliff Hardy. Some years things don't pan out quite like you want. Around here, every Boxing Day will find me somewhere very close to the couch, new Cliff Hardy and Christmas Chocolates in hand, pretending to watch the cricket whilst quietly reading. Only this year we were winning, and it's been a while and it was against England, and well I didn't get quite as much reading done as I would normally. So I'm catching up now.

From the Blurb:

CR - Mesdames of Mayhem

Book Title: 

Another one I forgot to mention from December... Given I've been deep in the Scarlet Stiletto Winners recently thought I should have a look at a similar concept from another location.

CR - A Song for the Dying, Stuart MacBride

Author Name: 

It was a very good Christmas / New Year Break with just enough hot weather to make me stay inside, watch the cricket (can anybody explain what it was that the Poms were doing out there...), and read some fabulous books. So I'm doing a bit of catch up as many of these are still from last year.

From the Blurb:

He’s back…

Eight years ago, ‘The Inside Man’ murdered four women and left three more in critical condition – all of them with their stomachs slit open and a plastic doll stitched inside.

And then the killer just … disappeared.
