Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Head down catching up with some of the books I've had here for too long and contributing to my quest for the Neddies 2015 Best First Crime entries.

From the Blurb:

Something is very rotten in the state of Tasmania.

Brad Finch, the marquee player of the Tassie Devils Football Club, is the victim at the heart of a new murder mystery. Intense media interest, interfering superior officers and corrupt business interests all threaten to derail the homicide investigation conducted by the Serious Crimes Squad.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

The third book in the Peter Clancy series sees him in London, working for one of the "red-top" gossip newspapers and getting his love life all out of control. Not sure why these books aren't getting more attention - it's a great series.

From the Blurb:

Australian journo Peter Clancy is in London this time, working for a notorious scandal sheet. While writing salacious stories on celebrities, Clancy poses as a biographer to dig the dirt on drug- and alcohol-raddled Olivia Michaels, once a star of the screen.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

'Tart noir has a new champion' Angela Savage is one of the quotes on the cover of this book. Tart noir is one of my very favourite things.

From the Blurb:

Forensic psychiatrist Natalie King works with victims and perpetrators of violent crime. Women with a history of abuse, mainly. She rides a Ducati a size too big and wears a tank top a size too small. Likes men but doesn’t want to keep one. And really needs to stay on her medication.

Now she’s being stalked. Anonymous notes, threats, strangers loitering outside her house.
