It jumped out at me, it literally jumped out at me ... It's not so much queue jumping as me being chronically unable to resist temptation. And a new Cato Kwong is too much temptation. Love this series, and if what I've read so far of this is any indication - oh this is a good one.

From the Blurb:

Category:

When wealthy property developer Francis Tan and his family are found slain in their mansion, Cato Kwong is forced to recall a personal history that makes his investigation doubly painful. The killer is elusive and brutal, and the investigation takes Cato to Shanghai. In a world of spoilt rich kids and cyber dragons, Cato is about to discover a whole lot more about the Chinese acquisition of Australian land – about those who play the game and those who die trying.

Another long weekend Australian read

From the Blurb:

Cato Kwong is back. Back in Boom Town and back on a real case – the unsolved mystery of a missing fifteen-year-old girl. But it’s midsummer in the city of millionaires and it’s not just the heat that stinks. A pig corpse, peppered with nails, is uncovered in a shallow grave and a body, with its throat cut, turns up in the local nightclub. As a series of blunders by Cato’s colleague brings the squad under intense scrutiny, Cato’s own sympathy for a suspect threatens to derail his case and his career.

Memorable Books from 2011

Whilst I can normally manage to cobble together one of those dreaded "Top 10" listings for some of the mailing lists or, just before Christmas, on the Sisters in Crime website, I hate doing them.  It's such an arbitrary number, and doesn't even allow me the luxury of a favourite book per month.  So instead, a few reminders to myself on what really stayed with me from last year's reading list of 135 books.
