Ronnie and Rita

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

Ronnie Spooner is middle-aged and single. He's no-one; a loner who has mowed lawns for a living ever since he was a boy. When he meets Rita, they fall in love, and want nothing more than a family of their own. Too bad it isn't possible. Or is it? What Rita asks him to do is wrong. Terribly wrong. But compared to the emptiness of Ronnie's life so far, even wrong seems better than nothing. Acclaimed author Deborah Sheldon takes you on a twisted love story that detours into even darker territory. The things we do for love...

Currently Reading - Hard Labour, The Crime Factory

Book Title: 

Never made any secret of my liking for short story collections, and the darker the better - which makes my dipping in and out of this little gem of a collection somewhat of a treat. Although I do think I should be smoking a cigarette, drinking straight scotch and sat somewhere dark and vaguely sinister...
