#amreading The Lewis Man, Peter May

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

2nd in the Lewis Trilogy, I've pretty much started this one straight after the first, The Blackhouse.

From the Blurb:

A body is recovered from a peat bog on the Isle of Lewis. The male Caucasian corpse is initially believed by its finders to be over 2000 years old, until they spot the Elvis tattoo on his right arm. The body, it transpires, is not evidence of an ancient ritual killing, but of a murder committed during the latter half of the 20th century.

#amreading The Blackhouse, Peter May

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Latest from the audio pile.

From the Blurb:

Peter May has crafted a page-turning murder mystery that explores the darkness in our souls, and just how difficult it is to escape the past. Winner of Prix Ancres Noires 2010. The Blackhouse was published in French as L'Ile des Chasseurs D'Oiseaux before publication in English, and won the prestigious 'Prix des Lecteurs' (readers' prize) at the Le Havre festival of crime writing.

#amreading Class Act, Ged Gillmore

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Started this one over the weekend and didn't get nearly enough reading time to finish it, which has turned out to be a bit annoying as it's very good.

From the Blurb:

Can a man who’s lived a life of crime ever escape his past? The world’s most reluctant private investigator is about to find out.

Former bad boy turned local hero, Bill Murdoch, should be happy with his little piece of paradise. After all, he’s got the fancy car and the big house by the beach. The only trouble is he’s slowly suffocating in small town life. 

#amreading Redemption Point, Candice Fox

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Technically this is a was reading, as it's been bubbling along in the background as a just a couple of chapters book, until it got to the point where sleep was lost finishing it.

From the Blurb:

When former police detective Ted Conkaffey was wrongly accused of abducting thirteen-year-old Claire Bingley, he hoped the Queensland rainforest town of Crimson Lake would be a good place to disappear. But nowhere is safe from Claire’s devastated father.

#amreading Rat Bait, Richard Ward

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

As you can possibly tell, the weather's gone a bit cooler. So there is more time for reading. 

From the Blurb:

Set in New Zealand, Rat Bait is a tense thriller which follows the activities of Zack Garroway as he pursues a one-man crime spree after being released from prison. Being part of a small community has its drawbacks despite the lengths to which he goes to cover his tracks, and the local police are not as laidback as they appear.
