CR - Monkey Business, Kathryn Ledson

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Continuing my "Australia Day" local reading... as opposed to my everyday local reading ... ;)

From the Blurb:

Erica Jewell reckons being a part-time vigilante is stressful enough, without the added pressures of a demanding day job, annoying family and bossy cat. Now her mysterious lover has vanished on some clandestine mission, without leaving a forwarding address. Erica thinks that's pretty typical of hired gun Jack Jones – he'd rather risk his life than his heart.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Another long weekend Australian read

From the Blurb:

Cato Kwong is back. Back in Boom Town and back on a real case – the unsolved mystery of a missing fifteen-year-old girl. But it’s midsummer in the city of millionaires and it’s not just the heat that stinks. A pig corpse, peppered with nails, is uncovered in a shallow grave and a body, with its throat cut, turns up in the local nightclub. As a series of blunders by Cato’s colleague brings the squad under intense scrutiny, Cato’s own sympathy for a suspect threatens to derail his case and his career.

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Australia Day long weekend - so Australian author reading of course.

From the Blurb:

When a teenage boy is killed in a targeted shooting, the events that unfold rock the lives of the migrant families of Cringila. School friends Jimmy and Piggy have witnessed the violent crime, but need to protect their fledgling drug business.

After seasoned police detective Gordon Winter is assigned the murder case, his investigations uncover long-buried secrets and an entrenched culture of loyalty and fear.
