Currently Reading - Only the Dead, Ben Sanders

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

So far I've read the second and now this - the third Sean Devereaux novel from NZ author Ben Sanders. Set in Auckland this is a fast paced, dry, very noir styled series.

From the Blurb:

When a failed witness protection operation ends in multiple homicides, evidence suggests the crime is linked to a series of violent robberies in Auckland City.

Currently Reading - Joe Victim, Paul Cleave

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

The Cleaner absolutely blew me away, and Joe Victim is a follow up to that book. Sounds good to me :)

From the Blurb:

Joe Middleton has a lot on his plate, to say the least. Arrested for a whole slew of murders he says he can’t remember, Joe—a.k.a. the Christchurch Carver—has been in jail for the last year awaiting trial, charged with the task of convincing the psychiatrists interviewing him that he wasn’t of sound mind and can’t be blamed for what he did. And, incredibly, that’s the least of his worries.

Death in July, Ballarat Writers, Sisters in Crime Australia, M.A.D.E. and who cares about the weather

Author Name: 

When you read a lot of books, the most frequent question you seem to get is "how do you manage to read so many books". The subtext obviously being either you're a speed reader, or you somehow don't have anything better to do. (You can tell from the look on the enquirer's face.) I'm not a speed reader by any means, but since childhood, coincidentally on a farm just outside Ballarat, I have been blessed with ability to stick my nose in a book and pretty well ignore everything else around me. And I do mean blessed.

Currently Reading - Where the Dead Men Go, Liam McIlvanney

Author Name: 

Honestly, it does not matter how many books you read in the world, there always seems to be more that you should have read. Somehow I missed the first in this series so have some catching up to do - which I'm doing back to front and out of order, as usual.

From the Blurb:

Currently Reading - Fractured, Dawn Barker

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Spent last night chasing bulls, ducks and geese around in circles in the dark and the rain - so it was a relief to get back inside, in front of the fire and read something that is much better than the blurb indicates.

From the Blurb:

Tony is worried. His wife, Anna, isn't coping with their newborn. Anna had wanted a child so badly and, when Jack was born, they were both so happy. They'd come home from the hospital a family. Was it really only six weeks ago?

Currently Reading - RUN TO ME, Diane Hester

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Debut thriller from Australian based, New York born former violinist Diane Hester who now lives in Port Lincoln. Quite a bio :)

From the Blurb:

It's been two years since Shyler O'Neil's beloved son Jesse was killed - but his final moments are as vivid to her now as they were that dreadful day. Suffering from post-traumatic stress, and convinced she did not do enough to protect him, she retreats to an isolated cabin in the woods of northern Maine.
