2nd book in the DI John Mahoney series, set in Tasmania.

From the Blurb:

Tasmania is in trouble. 

While mainland Australia surges through the backwash of the GFC the island state is struggling. Political infighting, bureaucratic ineptitude and a lack of investment have curtailed progress. Too many people are lodging on ‘Struggle Street’.

Currently Reading - The Heat, Garry Disher

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

There's nothing like a new Wyatt to make a reader very happy.

From the Blurb:

Wyatt needs a job.

A bank job would be nice, or a security van hold-up. As long as he doesn’t have to work with cocky idiots and strung-out meth-heads like the Pepper brothers. That’s the sort of miscalculation that buys you the wrong kind of time.

So he contacts a man who in the past put him on the right kind of heist. And finds himself in Noosa, stealing a painting for Hannah Sten.

Currently Reading - Breathe and Release, Katherine Hayton

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Another from this past week's reading (got a lot of catching up done) - this from NZ based author Katherine Hayton.

From the Blurb:

Elisabet wakes with amnesia. The care offered to her by a husband she doesn’t remember descends within weeks into aggression and violence.

Lillian lies hogtied in an underground cell. Forget about escape; unless she can manage the necessities of life she’ll be dead within days.
