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.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

When Sergeant John White, mentor, saviour and all-round good guy, is murdered during a routine call-out, the tight-knit world of Tasmania Polie is rocked to the core.

An already difficult investigation into the death of one of their own becomes steeped in politicial complexities when the main suspect is identified as Aboriginal and the case, courtesy of the ever-hostile local media, looks set to make Palm Island resemble a Sunday afternoon picnic in comparison.

Set in Tasmania, Australia, The Brotherhood begins as a respected cop, Sergeant John White, is murdered during a routine callout. As the investigation unfolds through the eyes of the sergeant's colleagues, friends, family, enemies and the murder suspect himself, it becomes clear that there was a great deal more to John White than meets the eye.
