Deadly Harvest

AustCrime - May / June Wrap Up

Right, so in April I was thinking back to 2006 and the commencement of AustCrime and then May I forgot to do a wrap up completely.

It's been busy in these parts. Unbelievably busy. So May / June together.


Every month this year is starting out with a revisit to the Discworld, so The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett it was.

From there, started off in Scandinavia with The Devil's Sanctuary, Marie Hermanson which started off with a bang and fizzled to a bit of a disappointment.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

An outing with Kubu is always a much anticipated event, and the addition of new detective Samantha Khama is really interesting.

From the Blurb:

Girls are disappearing in Botswana. The rumor is they're being harvested for muti, a witch doctor's potion traditionally derived from plants and animals--and which, some believe, can be made more potent by adding human remains. Detective David "Kubu" Bengu joins the investigation with the police force's newest detective--and only woman--Samantha Khama, for whom the case is personal.
