Deadly Australian Women

AustCrime - May / June Wrap Up

Right, so in April I was thinking back to 2006 and the commencement of AustCrime and then May I forgot to do a wrap up completely.

It's been busy in these parts. Unbelievably busy. So May / June together.

May

Every month this year is starting out with a revisit to the Discworld, so The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett it was.

From there, started off in Scandinavia with The Devil's Sanctuary, Marie Hermanson which started off with a bang and fizzled to a bit of a disappointment.

CR - Deadly Australian Women, Kay Saunders

Author Name: 

Stories of the women who broke society's greatest taboo

From the Blurb:

Do women kill? Yes they do, but often for very different reasons from men ...

Meet the women who have murdered - they′ve killed children, husbands, lovers, relatives and friends. They include the desperate, the poor, the abused, the sexually betrayed, and the downright callous. In some cases they were motivated by fear of society′s disapproval, in others they acted to save themselves from violence.
