AustCrime - April Wrap Up

April, apart from finishing off one book, was 100% Australian author month. Half way through the month it dawned on me that in 2006, when I got the first version of this site up and running, it was a bit tricky to fill an entire month's reading with local books - even with a bit of back catalogue re-reading.

CR - The Marmalade Files, Steve Lewis & Chris Uhlmann

Book Title: 

I will confess to a more than active interest in Federal Politics - from the sidelines. The machinations and glorious goings on have always been a matter of some considerable spectator interest, so THE MARMALADE FILES was a happy find. Although I'm still not convinced it's crime fiction, unless you regard political backstabbing as criminal (personally it seems somewhat more lifestyle...).

From the Blurb:

An imaginative romp through the dark underbelly of politics by two veteran Canberra insiders.

When seasoned newshound Harry Dunkley is slipped a compromising photograph one frosty Canberra dawn he knows he′s onto something big. In pursuit of the scoop, Dunkley must negotiate the deadly corridors of power where the minority Toohey Government hangs by a thread - its stricken Foreign Minister on life support, her heart maintained by a single thought.
