Ever get to the point where you start to wonder if the "staying alive until I get this pile of unread books read" plan wasn't such a great idea. I'm there now, so compensating by at least trying to get the waiting for review list under some control.

The Quarry, Kim Hunt (#yeahnoir)

The Last Devil to Die, Richard Osman

Eurovision took up a lot of time and energy so I've been not posting much, although lots has been happening. Not just a lot of time devoted to sheer silly fun. Which we really needed as this drought (sorry / rainfall deficiency as they call it when it's in the regions out here ...) really takes hold.

One of Us is Missing, B.M. Carroll (#auscrime)

So that catching up thing ... didn't happen. Stand by, you never know what will happen this week.

The Water's Dead, Catherine Lea (#yeahnoir)

Crossing the Line, Nick McKenzie (#f2fbookclub)

 

Started out thinking, right catching up to be done. Needless to say, not the most successful of good intentions. In my defence it's still dangerously dry in these parts which is slowing everything but the essentials to a crawl.

Sanctuary, Garry Disher (#auscrime)

It Takes a Town ... to solve a Murder, Aoife Clifford (#auscrime)

 

Still slow but steady.

Dead Man's Sins, Caimh McDonnell (audio) (Which I'm also listening to)

The arrivals slowed down this week, as did just about everything else.

None but there are a few that are on the way (hopefully).

Mami Suzuki: Private Eye, Simon Rowe (#yeahnoir)

 

Another week in which more New Zealand (#yeahnoir) based crime fiction was included on the site. The final list of the 2024 Ngaio Marsh Awards entries is at at Ngaio Marsh Entrants. Then there were a few reviews and some books read.

The Mystery Writer, Sulari Gentill (#auscrime)

A week in which rather a lot of New Zealand (#yeahnoir) based crime fiction arrived in these parts. I'm putting together a list of the 2024 Ngaio Marsh Awards entries at Ngaio Marsh Entrants - there's more to be added.

 

On the upside no animals died this week. And a new 6.5 year old Aussie Terrier arrived so no publishable reviews, unless you want some observations of how much wee 3 ex-breeding / not house trained dog's can produce in a few days whilst territorial issues are resolved. (Lots...)
