AustCrime - March Wrap Up

This March wrap up is, of course, late. But then, I'm the reader and a lousy blog writer. The books that are keeping me distracted are written by those writer type people. This month has been an interesting bag of ups and downs, highlights and potential. Apologies to those for whom I'm very late with reviews. It's been ridiculously hectic in these parts - what with himself overseas, and the ongoing "dry spell". (Lovely bit of spin that, nicely pitched as a tad of an inconvenience rather than the actuality of bugger all rain for 10 months and counting).

CR - Hal Spacejock, Simon Haynes

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

A long time ago, in a place far away from here (well the fringes of Melbourne, before we went bush) himself read this series and laughed a lot. I've been meaning to pick them up since then, and finally, looking for a change of pace... here we are.

From the Blurb:

An incompetent space pilot, a massive debt and a twenty-four hour deadline...

Freighter pilot Hal Spacejock has a life to die for: His very own cargo ship, a witty and intelligent flight computer ... and a debt so big it makes the GFC look like a rounding error.
