Currently Reading - Where the Dead Men Go, Liam McIlvanney

Author Name: 

Honestly, it does not matter how many books you read in the world, there always seems to be more that you should have read. Somehow I missed the first in this series so have some catching up to do - which I'm doing back to front and out of order, as usual.

From the Blurb:

Currently Reading - The Purifier, Richard Osborn

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

An Australian thriller series of three books, The Purifier is the opening salvo.

From the Blurb:

The Purifier is the story of a fanatical priest with ideas of world dominance, and his two power hungry children.

The Purifier is Paavan Chandra, a priest who is excommunicated from the Zoroastrian Church and who founds his own religion in India which spreads his word around the globe. Paavan’s mission is to destroy capitalism, and to form world government.

Currently Reading - The Beckoning Ice, Joan Druett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

First for me, but fifth in the Wiki Coffin series, it's always a huge pleasure to get my hands on a book from New Zealand. To accompany it I'm having a bit of a flashback to my Dragon fandom days.

From the Blurb:

Currently Reading - Straight Jacket, Adrian Deans

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

From the "started this over the long weekend" list - loving the sense of humour in this book.

From the Blurb:

If God is too indifferent, or too non-existent to take care of His creation, then clearly it's up to Me.
