Currently Reading - Love Songs from A Shallow Grave, Colin Cotterill

Author Name: 

I was so pleased to spy this book in Readers Feast in Melbourne when I was down there last month, and very pleased that I noticed it sitting there when I was wondering around looking for something to follow up from The Ihaka Trilogy - sometimes settling for something new after such a tremendous set of 3 books can be tricky.  Of course the only problem is that now I'm waiting for another Dr Siri to hang onto as my perfect reading option....

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I just loved the first book from Jenni Mills - Crow Stone, so I've been looking forward to the next.  So I was very pleased when it popped up on Book Depository (I think courtesy of my own personal enabler Em in LA!) 

This has an intriguing outline - 1938, war is looming and archaeologist Alexander Keiller - a millionaire with a passion for ritual magic - plans to reconstruct the 5000-year-old stone circle at Avebury.  Frannie, and her boyfriend Davey, are among those who fall under his spell, with fatal results.

Added to MtTBR - Wait for Dark by Scott Frost & The Bride Collector by Ted Dekker

Currently Reading - The Ihaka Trilogy, Paul Thomas

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I cannot begin to tell you the sheer joy on opening the parcel containing this book.  I read book 3 in this trilogy Guerilla Season ages ago and simply loved it.  Went on a quest for book 2 - Inside Dope which I managed to get hold of, but the quest for book 1 - Old School Tie has never come up successful.

Currently Reading - The Killing of Caroline Byrne, Robert Wainwright

Author Name: 

This is another one of those true crime books that I've been meaning to pick up for a while.  It's about the death of a woman who was initially thought (by some) to have jumped off The Gap in Sydney.  Connections to Rene Rivkin, the length of time the investigation took, and the eventual finding of guilty against her boyfriend made the case quite a talking point, although mostly in New South Wales.
