Book Title: 
Author Name: 

This has been languishing on the pile for Way. Too. Long.

From the Blurb:

One year on and Pufferfish - aka Detective Inspector Franz Heineken - remains haunted by his failure to apprehend the killer of a young Hobart woman. Every time he sees a merchant vessel leaving the city's port he thinks of Angie, because that's how her murderer escaped. And that merchant seaman may still be coming and going with impunity, waiting for another opportunity.

July on AustCrime, and another busy month of reading and reviewing. It could very well be that I'm out of sync with these postings again. Who knows.

13-Point Plan For a Perfect Murder

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

TASMANIA'S rise and rise as a tourist destination makes the island an ideal location for the cashed-up international polo-set, jetting in from Europe, Buenos Aires, Shanghai and LA for their late summer carnival and relaxathon in the world's latest clean-green hotspot. They play fiercely and party hard at the swish Polo Palace, built near beautiful beaches through the largesse of an island-loving polo-mad billionaire Bahraini businessman.
