Final book on my ebook to be read list for this week - the first book in the Peter Clancy series.

From the Blurb:

It is 1987 and Peter Clancy, a hard-drinking, hard-living Melbourne Truth journalist returns to his hometown to settle his mother's estate. Peter's two-day visit to Clarke's Flat stretches to eight as he is unwillingly drawn into the sinister secrets of this outback town

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

Author Name: 

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

From the Blurb:

The most dangerous people are those with the most to lose.

It is 1887. The young colony of New Zealand is in the grip of a deep depression. Insolvent speculators conspire with corrupt politicians while Maori land slips from the hands of its owners.

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'.
