Crime writers debate what makes for sparkling prose, sharp plots and much much more with Tanya King-Carmichael, Sisters in Crime National Co-convenor

All three authors have new books out:

AustCrime - February Wrap Up

I've been meaning to do this forever and somehow just never get around to... but there's so much really good Australian Crime Fiction and True Crime floating around at the moment, I think a monthly recap of what's been read / what's been reviewed won't hurt (might actually remind me what I've not posted yet!).

The month started out on a very big high with WEB OF DECEIT by KATHERINE HOWELL - which is just a wow of a book. Read, reviewed and now (im)patiently waiting for another one.

Funny, romantic, and action-packed, Rough Diamond introduces Australia's own Stephanie Plum – the unforgettable Erica Jewell.

The shock ending to Erica Jewell's marriage left a huge hole in her bank balance and a bigger one in her heart. And now her life goals make a very short list: no surprises, no debt and, definitely, no men. That is, until she finds one bleeding to death in her Melbourne garden one stormy Friday night.
