AustCrime - March Wrap Up

This March wrap up is, of course, late. But then, I'm the reader and a lousy blog writer. The books that are keeping me distracted are written by those writer type people. This month has been an interesting bag of ups and downs, highlights and potential. Apologies to those for whom I'm very late with reviews. It's been ridiculously hectic in these parts - what with himself overseas, and the ongoing "dry spell". (Lovely bit of spin that, nicely pitched as a tad of an inconvenience rather than the actuality of bugger all rain for 10 months and counting).

"The woman pulled a slim manila folder from a black leather briefcase.  She dropped it on to the cafe table with a bold flourish.  It was a deliberate, attention-seeking action, confronting and demanding.  Bromo Perkins lifted his head from his newspaper and glared at her."
