Currently Reading - Career of Evil, Robert Galbraith

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

The 3rd Cormoran Strike novel, and the 2nd that I've read in the last week :)

From the Blurb:

When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg.

Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible--and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

One of those books that I could have sworn I'd read, but then couldn't find a note of it anywhere. Got into it and realised, nope, hadn't read it. 

From the Blurb:

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days—as he has done before—and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

The Cuckoo's Calling - The List on Radio National - and me

Author Name: 

There's been quite a bit of chat about the unmasking of JK Rowling as the author of this book. So much so I got to have a lovely chat with Cassie McCullagh from Radio National's The List. Which you can listen to here: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/thelist/the-television-revolution2c-cuckoo27s-calling-and-zombie-apoc/4828762

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.

CR - The Cuckoo's Calling, Robert Galbraith

Author Name: 

It's a bit hard to ignore a comment like "reminds me why I fell in love with crime fiction in the first place... Val McDermid"...., and it's been more than a bit hard to put this one down.

From the Blurb:

After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his long-time girlfriend and is living in his office.
