Druett, Joan

Back in the year 1984, on the picture-poster tropical island of Rarotonga, I literally fell into whaling history when I tumbled into a grave. A great tree had been felled by a recent hurricane, exposing a gravestone that had been hidden for more than one and a half centuries. It was the memorial to a young whaling wife, who had sailed with her husband on the New Bedford ship Harrison in the year 1845. And so my fascination with maritime history was triggered ... resulting in 18 books (so far).

Currently Reading - Who Killed Scott Guy?, Mike White

Author Name: 

Flagged as the case that gripped a nation, it's not one that I'd heard of on this side of the ditch, before starting this book. Seems like a very sad series of events all round.

From the Blurb:

Scott Guy was a good man, a great dad, a salt-of-the-earth farmer who was gunned down at his front gate for no conceivable reason.

CR - The Blasphemer, John Ling

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Extremely interesting thriller set in New Zealand.

From the Blurb:

When Abraham Khan releases an e-book condemning radical Islam, the consequences hit him fast and hard -- an armed fanatic smashes into his home one evening, trying to kill him. He survives the harrowing attempt. Just barely. But will he survive the next one?

Maya Raines is the security operator brought in to protect Abraham. She is tough and committed. The very best at what she does. Always one step ahead of the threat.
