#amreading The Three Deaths of Magdalene Lynton, Katherine Hayton

Author Name: 

Started this one on Sunday night - first in the Ngaire Blakes series.

From the Blurb:

Forty years ago Magdalene Lynton drowned in a slurry. She choked to death as her hands scrabbled for purchase on the smooth concrete walls. A farmhand discovered her bloated body three days later.

Or she didn't.

Paul Worthington just confessed to her murder.

Forty years ago Magdalene Lynton died in a dirty shed. He smothered her life along with her cries for help and tossed her defiled corpse into a river when he was done.

Or he didn't.

#amreading The Last Time We Spoke, Fiona Sussman

Author Name: 

The second novel out of New Zealand I've been able to read that explores the after-affects of crime. Let's hope this is not just a glitch in the continuum as both of these novels now have been thought-provoking and challenging.

From the Blurb:

Jonothan Cullinane

Author Information
Cullinane, Jonothan

Jonothan Cullinane was born in Palmerston North in 1951. Having established his proletarian bona fides as a roughneck on oil rigs in Canada and the North Sea and as a proofreader and bartender in New York City during the 1970s, he began working in the New Zealand film industry in 1981. In 2007 he wrote and directed We're Here to Help, about the Christchurch businessman Dave Henderson's titanic run-in with the IRD. The unprecedented success of that film led to a job as a postie in Mt Roskill, Auckland, a position he still holds.
