Eva Destruction Returns! 

Forget James Bond. 

Forget Jason Bourne. 

When the world’s on the brink of a second Cold War, the only person to call is Eva Destruction. 

After a bombing in a Russian embassy, the murder of a CIA agent in Budapest, and an attack on MI6 itself, Eva assembles a team of Cold War veterans and puts the pedal to the metal in a race to prevent chaos on a global scale. 

With twists at every turn, she’ll do almost anything to bring down those responsible, except drink instant coffee.

I'm behind with everything and bloody hate coming up with Top howevermany's so I'm not pretending to try anymore. Instead, a list of books that just nailed it this year. In no particular order, or quantity, although I have had a go at combining them into geographical locations so you know - result.

#amreading The Barista's Guide to Espionage, Dave Sinclair

Author Name: 

Read this one last week and spent most of the time reading it laughing.

From the Blurb:

"Him: But he did buy you a castle. 

Her: That's okay I can build my own castle out of the fucks I no longer give." 

Meet Eva Destruction, the only thing quicker than her mouth is her talent for getting into trouble. It’s true she’s always had an eye for a bad boy but when she falls for billionaire super-villain Harry Lancing, it seems that even Eva may have bitten off more than she can chew.

Dave Sinclair

Author Information
Sinclair, Dave

Dave is a novelist, a screenwriter and a really excellent parallel parker.

He lives in Melbourne with his partner and two crazy daughters.

His debut novel, The Barista’s Guide to Espionage isn’t the first novel he’s written. Let’s call the other ones practice runs.

A prolific writer, he spent a lot of time trying to break into the publishing world*. Dave isn’t a full time writer.  He just has too much spare time on his hands. By day he’s a corporate stooge, by night he’s a (two finger) typing fool.
