#amreading - Festive Season Reading Pile - Win, Lose or Draw, Peter Corris

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Bittersweet experience reading this - the last Cliff Hardy novel.

From the Blurb:

A missing teenager, drugs, yachts, the sex trade and a cold trail that leads from Sydney to Norfolk Island, Byron Bay and Coolangatta. Can Cliff Hardy find out what's really going on?

Will one man's loss be Hardy's gain?

'I'd read about it in the papers, heard the radio reports and seen the TV coverage and then forgotten about it, the way you do with news stories.'

January on AustCrime

January, being a month in which we took a break from computers, meant a lot of reading and then a scrambling review catchup - which is still not caught up.

#amreading - Crime Scenes Short Story Anthology

Book Title: 

I did jump this up the queue. A lot. I just love short story collections, and there are some wonderful writers in this.

From the Blurb:

Is there really such a thing as an innocent person?

Teachers, cops, mothers, wives, everyone has their breaking point; that moment where it could go either way. From the prostitute with no way out, to the bitter author, and a cop who just wants his leave, the characters in this collection will baffle and bewilder you at every turn.
