CR - Drive By, Michael Duffy

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Sometimes a book comes along and I find myself tempted to write FICTION on a post-it note and stick it on the cover, just to remind myself. Of course this is fictional, and there are aspects of it that are obviously so. Will be interesting to see where it goes as I'm only about 3/4s of the way through. So far, I'm not all that convinced by the comparison with Temple's books. This is a bit of a doorstopper for a start.

From the Blurb:

AustCrime - March Wrap Up

This March wrap up is, of course, late. But then, I'm the reader and a lousy blog writer. The books that are keeping me distracted are written by those writer type people. This month has been an interesting bag of ups and downs, highlights and potential. Apologies to those for whom I'm very late with reviews. It's been ridiculously hectic in these parts - what with himself overseas, and the ongoing "dry spell". (Lovely bit of spin that, nicely pitched as a tad of an inconvenience rather than the actuality of bugger all rain for 10 months and counting).
