#amreading Romeo's Gun, David Owen

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

This has been languishing on the pile for Way. Too. Long.

From the Blurb:

One year on and Pufferfish - aka Detective Inspector Franz Heineken - remains haunted by his failure to apprehend the killer of a young Hobart woman. Every time he sees a merchant vessel leaving the city's port he thinks of Angie, because that's how her murderer escaped. And that merchant seaman may still be coming and going with impunity, waiting for another opportunity.

#amreading The Dark Lake, Sarah Bailey

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Another from last week's reading - to be reviewed at http://www.newtownreviewofbooks.com

From the Blurb:

A hot summer. A shocking murder. A town of secrets, waiting to explode. A brooding, suspenseful and explosive debut that will grip you from the first page to the last.

#amreading Wimmera, Mark Brandi

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Had a bit of a break from work last week so I'm behind with posting these. This was one of those books that I have been looking forward to, set in a part of the world that's not a million miles from home - then and now.

From the Blurb:

In the long, hot summer of 1989, Ben and Fab are best friends.

#amreading Stranger, Peter A Stankovic

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Started reading this one from the badly neglected to be read pile last night.

From the Blurb:

Political journalist Nick Hunter suddenly loses his memory. He can't find his wallet, his computer password or even his name. When it comes to women it's even more confusing. Does he have a lover or a wife?

#amreading - Red Herring, Jonothan Cullinane

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Late in mentioning this one, particularly as I've been reading and re-reading it a couple of times now.

From the Blurb:

Murder, political intrigue, bent cops and the fate of a nation - a thriller set in the murky underworld of 1951 New Zealand.

A man overboard, a murder and a lot of loose ends ...

In Auckland 1951 the workers and the government are heading for bloody confrontation and the waterfront is the frontline. But this is a war with more than two sides and nothing is what it seems.
