The Most Memorable Books: 2014

Because it's been such a stellar year for Crime Fiction - a Most Memorable of the Year List before Christmas seems like a plan in case anybody is thinking about books to spoil themselves / friends / family with. Of course the year isn't over yet and I fully expect a few more "memorables" between now and the end of December, if the previous 11 months have been any indication.

The ones that simply will not go out of my head:

CR - Beams Falling, P.M. Newton

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

The much anticipated and long awaited follow up to The Old School, due to be released at the end of February - but I have zero impulse control sometimes. The initial book in this series was extremely promising, and having now got stuck into this one, it's boding very very well.

From the Blurb:

Beams Falling

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

On the inside, Detective Nhu 'Ned' Kelly is a mess. Stitched up after being shot, her brain's taking even longer to heal than her body. On the outside, though, she's perfect, at least as far as the top brass are concerned. Cabramatta is riding high on the new 'Asian crime wave', a nightmare of heroin, home invasions, and hits of all kinds, and the cops need a way into the world of teenaged dealers and assassins.

Sydney, 1992.  Nhu 'Ned' Kelly is a young detective making her way in what was, until recently, the best police force money could buy.  Now ICAC has the infamous Roger Rogerson in the spotlight, and the old ways are out.  Ned's sex and background still make her an outsider in the force, but Sydney is changing, expanding, modernising, and so is the Job.
