Hi Karen, don't want this to sound like a shameless plug, but keep your eye out for my debut, Dead Men's Dust, which will be hitting your shores in the next couple of weeks. Always nice to meet new crime fans. Thanks for adding me as a friend. Matt.
what is this, the third rack of hell or something? the cool change hits tonight, apparently, so I said, "That's it, I'm sleeping in my own bed." I'm at the library tomorrow, so I'll see if I can dig up some of this other guy's stuff - thanks!
Yeah, I've been sleeping in the lounge for the past two nights because my bedroom gets too hot in summer. What's it like up where you are?Maloney confused me a fair bit, it was funny in parts but it just didn't pack enough apunch for me. If a book can make me sit up and say "No *way*!" at least once, then it's great.
Gee, Karen, what told you that? That was taken up at Glenrowan somewhere in the area of last year. I haven't read any of your favourite writers, I'll have to check them out. I've just started the Stephanie Plum (Evanovich) series and I'm well and truly hooked!
The Melon blog, nice one! I could post updates on current melon conditions and standout attributes such as shininess, fluff length and pimple distribution. Now where did I put that book on synoptic terminology…
I have not quite found out yet what crimespace really is but apparently it doesn´t much matter because interesting people keep inviting me in :)
I can see in your profile that we do have much in common, "Mankell, Wahloo and Sjowall, Nesbo, Fossum, Alvtegen, Larsson and their ilk. Indridason from Iceland ... ". I have read all of these, and Alvtegen is not really a favourite but I certainly love the others.
Another thing I don´t quite know is whether this community is also related to people´s blog addresses? - if not, I think you should visit my very new crime fiction blog: "DJs krimiblog". So far there are only a few reviews (all Norwegian, by coincidence) but there should be something for you, e.g. "Anne Holt" some of whose books are truly excellent.
... and it's not half-finished yet! Very pleased to meet you - your website is a wonderful resource! Any chance you might be going to LCC in Hawaii? I know there will be a few Antipodeans making the trip (including me).
That's the only thing about true crime....sometimes it is hard to sleep after you have finished reading...it sucks you in....I always have trouble putting books down or i simply don't want to get off the train, so i can keep reading!
Hey Karen.....i am currently reading Written on the Skin: An Australian Forensic Casebook by Liz Potter....it is really good....also reading the Lindy Chamberlain autobiography and a book on the Sue Snow poisening in America by Gregg Olsen. I really do read alot...all the time on the train, i have to do something! And yeah i love true crime.
Yep, I'll see you at the Crime and Justice Festival. After the 12pm sessions. It'll be great to meet you all. Missed the Sisters in Crime event - still jetlagged then! But I'm appearing at one 15 August and will hopefully get to a few others this year too.
Hi, Karen, great to visit such an avid reader! People never understand when I tell them I love rain just as much as sunshine -- it gives me a chance to kick back under the skylights and rain to the sound of rainfall...
All the best,

Bummer Karen. Yes, I'm off to SinC tonight since I can't wait to hear Betty King. Well, if I do anything about it, I'll write it up for your blog ... don't promise since I'm there with a friend and who knows how much wine I'll be having, LOL.
