Currently Reading - The Girl in 6E, Alessandra Torre

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Another holiday week read.

From the Blurb:

I haven't touched a human in three years. That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it's not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet.

I am, quite possibly, the most popular recluse ever. Not many shut-ins have a 200-member fan club, a bank account in the seven-figure range, and hundreds of men lining up to pay for undivided attention.

They get satisfaction, I get a distraction. Their secret desires are nothing compared to why I hide... my lust for blood, my love of death.

Currently Reading - The Bomb Makers, Marcus Case

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Holiday reading thriller which was badly overdue, and a pleasure to finally get to.

From the Blurb:

The terror cells have been activated and elite bombers from ETA and the Real IRA are already making their move, intent on using a device that will cause carnage on an unimaginable scale…

Book 2 of the over the holiday's reading - not one for fans of cozies....

From the Blurb:

Detective Gabriella Versado has seen a lot of bodies. But this one is unique even by Detroit's standards; half-boy, half-deer, somehow fused. The cops nickname him "Bambi," but as stranger and more disturbing bodies are discovered, how can the city hold on to a reality that is already tearing at its seams?

Currently Reading - The Sun is God, Adrian McKinty

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I've had a week off work and did a spot of reading catchup - so now I'm doing a spot of posting catchup, which will be followed by a spot of reviewing catchup. But the best thing was a chance to read this departure from the expected from Adrian McKinty.

From the Blurb:

Currently Reading - A Murder Unmentioned, Sulari Gentill

Author Name: 

Been hoarding this one a little bit - as the published date is the 1st November and it doesn't seem fair to get everyone excited too far out :)

From the Blurb:

The black sheep of a wealthy grazier dynasty, gentleman artist Rowland Sinclair often takes matters into his own hands. When the matter is murder, there are consequences.

For nearly fourteen years, Rowland has tried to gorget, but now the past has returned.

A newly-discovered gun casts light on a family secret long kept... a murder the Sinclairs would prefer stayed unsolved.

Currently Reading - Happy Days, Graham Hurley

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Sometimes you can only put off the inevitable for so long. In one way I've dreading reading this book. Even knowing there's a spinoff series which I ABSOLUTELY MUST GET TO, it's still the end of an era and I've loved the Faraday / Winter books so much.

From the Blurb:

As ex-drug baron Bazza Mackenzie runs for parliament, ex-cop Paul Winter knows that his time with Bazza must, at whatever cost, come to an end, in the 12th in this highly acclaimed series of police procedurals

Currently Reading - Kill Zone, Harry Ledowsky

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

With hindsight possibly not a good choice right after a non-fiction book about the "war on terror"... a thriller set right in the middle of that territory :)

From the Blurb:

A nuclear device the size of a briefcase has been developed in Pakistan. The scientist responsible has disappeared with it. The CIA believes the target is on US soil.

Currently Reading - In the Company of Cowards, Michael (Dan) Mori

Author Name: 

If ever there was a book that you'd want to be fiction, if there could have been a reason for even less respect for the Howard Government and the purposeful devaluation of the political process... well.

From the Blurb:

On a beautiful, balmy evening in Cuba in 2007, David Hicks walked out of Guantanamo Bay, in that moment ceasing to be a detainee of the United States and regaining his rights as an Australian citizen. Watching on was the man who had fought for four long years for Hicks's right to go home: Major Michael Mori.

Currently Reading - Once Upon a Time in Melbourne, Liam Houlihan

Should have got a lot of things done over the weekend. Couldn't put this down instead.
