Anne Holt's The Lion's Mouth. As usual, the characters of this Norwegian author are terrifically drawn, but
the plot in this one is a little weak.
Thanks, I'll check it out.
Currently reading a series by Baxter Clare, American police novels set in LA.
Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, and Dan Brown's Inferno :)
Just read the last page of Peter May's Freeze Frame.
Just starting Toby Ball's The Vault, a dystopian world where apparently files on every one are kept in an underground vault in a noir unnamed City.
Finally started the Gary Disher Inspector Challis series, The Dragon Man.
This is a very good book, after reading Candice Fox's Hades last month I must say that the future of Australian crime writing is very bright indeed.
Give these writers a try, you wont be sorry.
I just finished reading A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas. It is a imagined Sherlock Holmes - where Sherlock is a woman. Well written, great characters. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The Procane Chronicle by Oliver Bleek aka Ross Thomas
Pavel and I, by Dan Vyleta. Setting is Berlin, ten days during the Christmas season, 1946. Six characters do some good things and some bad things. An amazing book.
Quota by Jock Serong.
Anyone who grew up in small town anywhere will enjoy this.
CHARLIE JARDIM has just trashed his legal career in a spectacular courtroom meltdown, and his fiancee has finally left him. When an old friend slings him a prosecution brief that will take him to the remote coastal town of Dauphin, Charlie reluctantly agrees that the sea air might be good for him.
The case is a murder. The victim was involved in the illegal abalone trade and the even more illegal drug trade. and the witnesses aren't talking.
