#amreading Force of Nature, Jane Harper

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

This has been sitting on the to be read pile for way too long.

From the Blurb:

Five women reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking along the muddy track. Only four come out the other side.

The hike through the rugged Giralang Ranges is meant to take the office colleagues out of their air-conditioned comfort zone and teach resilience and team building. At least that is what the corporate retreat website advertises.

#amreading Clear to the Horizon, Dave Warner

Author Name: 

I've jumped this up the queue because I needed a bit of a kickstart to get reading seriously again. It's working.

From the Blurb:

In 1999, a number of young women go missing in the Perth suburb of Claremont. One body is discovered. Others are never seen again. Snowy Lane (City of Light) is hired as a private investigator but neither he nor the cops can find the serial killer. Sixteen years later, another case brings Snowy to Broome, where he teams up with Dan Clement (Before It Breaks) and an incidental crime puts them back on the Claremont case.

#amreading An Isolated Incident, Emily Maguire

Author Name: 

It's been busy in these parts but I have been getting a bit of reading done. Particularly pleased it was this one, straight from the very hard to put down camp.

From the Blurb:

When 25-year-old Bella Michaels is brutally murdered in the small town of Strathdee, the community is stunned and a media storm descends.
