Currently Reading - The Half-Child, Angela Savage

The much anticipated second book from Angela Savage, published this month in Australia.  Small shivers of happy dancing as I pick up this book.

From the Blurb:

Jayne has been hired to investigate the alleged suicide of a young Australian woman in a seedy Thai coastal town.  But Maryanne Delbeck's death is not the only mystery awaiting Jayne among Pattaya's neon signs and go-go bars.  While working undercover at the orphanage where Maryanne volunteered, Jayne discovers something far more sinister.

Opening Lines:

At four o'clock on Tuesday morning a concrete girder as big as a bus fell from the sky and crushed a taxi, killing the driver.  There were no passengers in the vehicle - fortuitous but not surprising.
