Currently Reading - Dirty Secrets: Our ASIO Files, Meredith Burgmann

Author Name: 

Not crime, unless you regard some of the things that ASIO got up to as criminal, as opposed to ridiculous....

From the Blurb:

In this moving, funny and sometimes chilling book, leading Australians open their ASIO files and read what the state's security apparatus said about them. Writers from across the political spectrum including Mark Aarons, Phillip Adams, Nadia Wheatley, Michael Kirby, Peter Cundall, Gary Foley and Anne Summers confront – and in some cases reclaim – their pasts.

Currently Reading - A Murder Unmentioned, Sulari Gentill

Author Name: 

Been hoarding this one a little bit - as the published date is the 1st November and it doesn't seem fair to get everyone excited too far out :)

From the Blurb:

The black sheep of a wealthy grazier dynasty, gentleman artist Rowland Sinclair often takes matters into his own hands. When the matter is murder, there are consequences.

For nearly fourteen years, Rowland has tried to gorget, but now the past has returned.

A newly-discovered gun casts light on a family secret long kept... a murder the Sinclairs would prefer stayed unsolved.

Currently Reading - Kill Zone, Harry Ledowsky

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

With hindsight possibly not a good choice right after a non-fiction book about the "war on terror"... a thriller set right in the middle of that territory :)

From the Blurb:

A nuclear device the size of a briefcase has been developed in Pakistan. The scientist responsible has disappeared with it. The CIA believes the target is on US soil.
