Keeping up with the 2015 Ned Kelly Submissions - Best Crime

This year I've promised myself a red hot go at reading the entire submissions list for all 3 of the Ned Kelly Categories. Preferably before the 2016 Submissions List is released although there are days when I think I might have bitten off more than I can possibly chew. Still - getting there :)

Next up Best Crime - kept the best to last :)

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Dishonour takes on some very current day issues, so this should be an interesting read.

From the Blurb:

Detective-Inspector Debra Hawkins has domestic violence in her sights. But as head of a new police unit targeting violence against women, she has hit a wall of silence.

How can she help Rana al-Sheikly, a young woman who yearns for the freedom to lead her own life while her brothers are planning to send her into a forced marriage in Iraq? And what is the connection between these men and the crime gangs that are running rife in the suburbs?

CR - If I Tell You.....

This is a seriously brilliant idea this book, one that I'm really pleased to see close to out and about.  (Dislaimer: I was recently invited to join ACWA's committee. A long time after this book was conceived and developed.)

From the Blurb:

Crime fiction is the single most popular genre in international publishing and Australia has some of the finest practitioners when it comes to walking the mean streets and nailing the bad guys.
