Containment

Memorable Books from 2011

Whilst I can normally manage to cobble together one of those dreaded "Top 10" listings for some of the mailing lists or, just before Christmas, on the Sisters in Crime website, I hate doing them.  It's such an arbitrary number, and doesn't even allow me the luxury of a favourite book per month.  So instead, a few reminders to myself on what really stayed with me from last year's reading list of 135 books.

From the Blurb:

Chaos reigns in the sleepy village of Aromoana when shipping containers wash up on the beach and are looted.

Detective Constable Sam Shephard knows first-hand the desperation of the scavengers - she's got the scars to prove it.

Plus a skull in the sand.

And a body pulled from the ocean.

The undercurrents from one morning's madness are far-reaching.  Who else will be caught in the backwash?  Can Sam stem the tide?
