#amreading Clear to the Horizon, Dave Warner

Author Name: 

I've jumped this up the queue because I needed a bit of a kickstart to get reading seriously again. It's working.

From the Blurb:

In 1999, a number of young women go missing in the Perth suburb of Claremont. One body is discovered. Others are never seen again. Snowy Lane (City of Light) is hired as a private investigator but neither he nor the cops can find the serial killer. Sixteen years later, another case brings Snowy to Broome, where he teams up with Dan Clement (Before It Breaks) and an incidental crime puts them back on the Claremont case.

#amreading An Isolated Incident, Emily Maguire

Author Name: 

It's been busy in these parts but I have been getting a bit of reading done. Particularly pleased it was this one, straight from the very hard to put down camp.

From the Blurb:

When 25-year-old Bella Michaels is brutally murdered in the small town of Strathdee, the community is stunned and a media storm descends.

#amreading All the Wicked Girls, Chris Whitaker

Author Name: 

I've not been getting much reading done for the last couple of weeks as I'm solo farming at the moment. Hopefully that will sort itself out in the next couple of days when my partner returns from an overseas work trip, and I'm taking to a relaxing chair for a few days :)

From the Blurb:

Everyone loves Summer Ryan. A model student and musical prodigy, she's a ray of light in the struggling small town of Grace, Alabama - especially compared to her troubled sister, Raine.
