At the same time Erlendur is re-living his past - his… Continue

1851 is the setting for this first title in the Railway Detective series: the year of the Great Exhibition, and the building of the Crystal Palace. The Detective Department of Scotland Yard is only 9 years old. A train on the Great Western Railway is held up at Leighton Buzzard, its driver seriously hurt, the train robbed of the consignment of gold coins that it is carrying, and finally derailed. The investigator is Inspector Robert Colbeck, a considerate, well-spoken, well… Continue

Recently read - THE HANGMAN by Peter Lovesey (5.0)

It is 3 years since Peter Diamond's wife was killed and he is being stalked by a woman who wants to become better acquainted. ACC Georgina Dalley's friend's daughter has gone missing . A woman's body is discovered hanging from a public playground swing, at first sight a suicide, but then it seems she may already have been dead when hung there. The discovery of a second body seems to signal that they have a "hangman" on the loose. Very very readable.

An audio 'read' - HARK : an 87th precinct novel by Ed McBain, 3.8

Gloria Stanford is found dead in her apartment. She has cheated on the Deaf Man and he has taken his revenge. But he is not finished with the 87th precinct. He has a daring plan to make the precinct, and especially detective Steve Carella, look very stupid. Carella begins getting cryptic notes, some of them Shakespearian quotations, some anagrams, and some palindromes. They are delivered to the station by a succession of druggies and down-and-outers and point to an event happening within the… Continue

Hi Kerrie

Good to meet another Aussie here, and it's such a good idea to put your reviews up.

Hi Kerrie,
Love the photo. Completely captures the spirit of Melbourne. Shame you had to go home on Friday. I had a really great session on Sunday am with Alexander McCall Smith and Adrian Hyland on literary cross-dressing. Very funny. The only problem was that afterwards the book shop sold out of NIGHT FERRY and couldn't find another box. About twenty people missed out, which is a complete bummer. Hopefully, they'll buy it elsewhere. Great to see you. Take care. M

The feeling is mutual Kerrie. I'm finally back home after touring Queensland. Met some great people. Lost my voice. Drank too much. Now I have to recharge before heading for the US. See you in Melbourne.

Gee you're quick getting the news. I think you must have heard about the Steel Dagger nomination before I did!!!

my mistake on the dates, Kerrie.
I think I'm going mad.
Hope you can still make it.

Hi Kerrie - thanks for the reviews!

Hi Kerrie. Yes, I'll post my reviews as blogs. Each of my reviews are deliberately short, so I don't think it's a problem. Even so, It appears there is a certain length that will be visible on the page and then there is a "more..." link to see any text that goes beyond that length. Does that make sense? I'm just trying to figure out whether I want to go back and post back reviews or start from the beginning of 2007, or only start with current. Don't worry, I'll figure it out soon.

Just thought that I'd pop in and say hello Kerrie.

Hello LJ

no - there is a tags thingy on forums, but not blogs which is a bit odd. Perhaps it will come eventually. Glad to see you here

Hi Kerrie. I love having a friend Down Under. I so new to all this. I got to you page by clicking your photo, which I love, on my chatterwall. My next step is to start putting up my reviews. It doesn't seem there is a way to to tags on blogs though. Oh well, bit by bit.
