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.

May

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.

Dusty Dexter’s a novice PI, but she’s not going to let that stop her cracking wide open an international drug smuggling ring. She doesn’t play by the rules, ok she doesn’t know the rules, but she’s got smarts. And she’s prepared to take chances, something her boss Red, an ex-cop with a secret, doesn’t understand. Neither does Hank, the hunky senior sergeant. Will a zap with a taser put him off Dusty for good? With friend Janet Jones, an obsessive triathlete on target for a PB, she tracks down the bad guys from Mooloolaba to Vanuatu.

http://www.dustydexterpi.com/p/jan-who.html - This is my patch, Mooloolaba, and it's Dusty's too. It's where I get my ideas and inspiration, and where Dusty gets to make her first case.

It's not the most likely environment for crime, it's a family tourist destination, but I like to imagine there's a lot more going on than you see on the surface.
