Wonderful Initiative for fans of translated crime and thrillers - Le French Book

Being more than a little bit of a fan of reading foreign based crime and thrillers, and translated ones into the bargain - I was really pleased to see this initiative pop up:

Digital first publishing of this kind really is a boon to we readers and definitely deserves a look / support.

Currently Reading - Chasing the Sun, Robin Baker

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

If you're going to do "vampires" then I figure in one giant "bite"... sorry. This one's due out in October so more then.

From the Blurb:

"The best way to blend in is to stand out."

A twisted tale about Feng Shui, vampires, drinking, pet psychiatry, genocide, belief and mortality... In this darkly comic, slow-burn fantasy thriller, nothing is as it seems. A nightclub opening becomes a fight for life and the discovered fountain of youth hides a movement to exterminate a race.

Currently Reading - Walking Shadows, Narrelle M Harris

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I know ... I know .. I know. What on earth am I doing. I'm not even slightly into all this vampire stuff. But there were snippets of this book that I noticed as the ebook prep was rolling along, and I do kind of like a dry, laid back sense of humour, so I figured if I was EVER going to get the whole vampire thing... this might be a book to try.

From the Blurb:

Currently Reading - Guilt, Melissa Chan

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Still plugging away at the retrospective reading in the background.

From the Blurb:

When a self-styled king of the corporate world is shot down in a Melbourne traffic jam and his death is followed by that of a prominent Member of the Conservative Opposition frontbench and a leading light of the Donors' Club, Inspector Joe Barnaby joins independent feminist detective Francesca Miles in the hunt for the killer.

Currently Reading - By Any Means, Ben Sanders

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I've been looking forward to reading this book by NZ Author Ben Sanders, and if the way that the first few chapters grabbed attention is any indication, I think this could be right up my alley.

From the Blurb:

Friday rush hour. Auckland City. A lone shooter fires across a packed street and kills a man. Detective Sergeant Sean Devereaux is assigned the case. He's not complaining. His Friday nights are seldom better spent.
