#amreading Retribution, Richard Anderson

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

This is the latest in the rural noir pile, and 50 or so pages in feels like a very good entry indeed.

From the Blurb:

Perhaps if Sweetapple hadn’t stopped to help the idiots who had just near run him off the road in their ute, things may have gone entirely differently.

#amreading The Echo of Others, S.D. Rowell

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

From the just finished pile.

From the Blurb:

An outsider detective. The vigilante killer with a message. A cold case they both want solved.

From Amazon Bestseller S.D. Rowell comes a heart-pounding crime mystery that will keep you thinking until the final page… 

Peter Corris

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

In 1942 Peter Corris was born in Stawell Victoria. 122ks away, I arrived in a similar part of the world sometime later. In 1980 I was newly arrived in Melbourne, and by absolute happenstance, a crime fiction fan, living around the corner from Murder Inc in Auburn Road, Hawthorn. My delight at that stage was the discovery of a ready source of John Wainwright's books. And then Malcolm, the lovely and profoundly knowledgeable gentleman who ran Murder Inc, asked me if I'd like to try something local for a change. The Dying Trade was my first Cliff Hardy novel.

Rob Langdon

Author Information
Langdon, Rob

Rob Langdon served in the Australian Army for almost fifteen years, before becoming a security contractor working in Iraq and Afghanistan. In July 2009 Rob was protecting a convoy when he shot and killed an Afghan guard during a heated argument after the guard drew a pistol on him. Rob's claim of self-defence was dismissed by a court in Kabul that refused to hear any of his evidence or call any of his witnesses, and he was sentenced to death in a matter of minutes. 

Neil Roberts

Author Information
Roberts, Neil

I grew up in a working class suburb of Melbourne, Australia. In high school (for the odd times I was in attendance and not truant on a fishing or camping expedition) my favourite subject was English, only marginally ahead of Geography. After leaving school and completing a trade in the building industry I guess Geography eventually won out, for I succumbed to the lure of the ocean and travel - which saw the next twenty years spent with the Royal Australian Navy. 

Announcing the 2018 Ned Kelly Award Winners (or what we did with our weekend (and a few hours before that ;) )

So on the weekend we (as in the ACWA Committee - Rochelle Jackson, Robert Goodman, David Whish-Wilson, Louisa (LA) Larkin, Andrea Thompson, Jacqui Horwood, Deb Crabtree, Georgina Heydon, Meg Vann and I) did a thing. The 2018 Ned Kelly Awards were presented, and I cannot tell you how pleased we are every year to see these awards continuing from strength to strength, acknowledging the best and brightest in our Crime Writing Community giving us a chance to wave certificates, trophies and prize envelopes under their noses.
