Review of The Half-Child by Angela Savage (Text, 2010)

Jayne Keeney is a Bangkok PI who apart from her skills as an investigator, whose sharp observations as an outsider fill the pages of this terrific novel ('his eyes were amber, but not in an attractive way. As if his skull was full of beer'), is well qualified in the areas of 'drinking, smoking and inappropriate relationships' (my kind of heroine, exactly.)

Hi David,

 

I'm one of the editors for Noir Nation, and I would love to get some more stories from Australia for Issue 2  (Issue 1 will be available Sept 1, 2011).  Looking for short stories and graphic stories (comics).  Maybe you have some, and could also help spread the word?  We start reading for issue 2 on Oct 1.

 

Thank you,

Alan

Hello and welcome! I just wanted to introduce myself, and my blog, The Book Buff: Book Reviews for Regular People. Check it out at http://www.thebookbuff.blogspot.com

There is always a giveaway going on at The Book Buff, click on the book title for more info:

The Aristobrats by best selling author Jennifer Solow (YA)
The Island (audiobook) by New York Times best seller Elin Hilderbrand (Women's Contemporary Fiction)
Texas Roads by Cathy Bryant (Christian Fiction/Romance)

It can be a bit overwhelming around here at first, so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
