#amreading Hard Labour, Bill Bateman

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

One from this year's Ned Kelly submission list, set around Warrnambool in Victoria.

From the Blurb:

After a medical mishap, Dr Vince Hanrahan crashes professionally and personally, is all but struck off, and the Medical Board kicks him all the way down the Princes Highway to be a rural GP. Supervised. On notice. He rents a dump, lives off takeaway, and plans to see out his time before regaining his rightful position on the specialist pedestal. 

Bill Bateman

Author Information
Bateman, Bill

Bill Bateman practiced medicine for 25 years on Victoria's rugged south-west coast, before moving with his family to the city. Currently he works at an inner suburban GP practice and a drop in clinic for the homeless. He was the author of a fortnightly (hopefully funny) column in The Australian Doctor, a national medical magazine, and now turns his pen to novel writing. The characters and setting of Hard Labour will appear in Bill's future books.

#amreading Inspector Anders and the Prague Dossier, Marshall Browne

Author Name: 

Bittersweet reading. On the one hand I've sort of been hoarding it a little, knowing that this will be the last ever Inspector Anders book, but on the other hand I've been keen to read it. 

From the Blurb:

Inspector Anders of the Rome Police became a hero when he closed down an anarchist group years ago. But in the action he lost a leg - and his nerve. Since then, he's made his moral compromises. Now, battle-weary, he'll do one last job.

#amreading Too Easy, J.M. Green

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

From the weekend's pile - really liked the earlier one in this series.

From the Blurb:

Wisecracking social worker Stella Hardy returns, and this time she’s battling outlaw bikie gangs, corrupt cops, and a powerful hunger for pani puri.

On a stormy Halloween night, Stella gets a call from her best friend, Detective Phuong Nguyen. Phuong has a problem. Or rather her lover, Bruce Copeland, does.

#amreading The Girl in Kellers Way, Megan Goldin

Author Name: 

From last week's reading pile.

From the Blurb:

When a body is found buried near the desolate forest road of Kellers Way, Detective Melanie Carter must identify the victim if she is to have any chance of finding the killer. That's no easy task with fragmentary evidence from a crime committed years earlier and a conspiracy of silence from anyone who might have information.
