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 :)

It looks like in order to get a reasonable number of books read, you also need to have a very busy weekend. It felt a bit like Spencer Street Station here this weekend which you'd normally think not conducive to much reading - but got a lot done. Must of been sitting down waiting for the next group to drop in :)

Some people love goodbyes...

Currently Reading - Hard Labour, The Crime Factory

Book Title: 

Never made any secret of my liking for short story collections, and the darker the better - which makes my dipping in and out of this little gem of a collection somewhat of a treat. Although I do think I should be smoking a cigarette, drinking straight scotch and sat somewhere dark and vaguely sinister...
