#amreading Murder on Broadway, John Rosanowski

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Another from the staggeringly varied #yeahnoir pile

From the Blurb:

It's Broadway in Reefton, the new, booming 1870s gold town.

Suspiciously, Gordon Trembath, a naive young police constable has been left in charge over Christmas and New Year. He is immediately faced with investigating a murder carried out by sly-groggers in the valley.

In the meantime, the town has been invaded by "a collection of scamps, card sharps, liars and chats who have come to town for the pickings available in the holiday season."

#amreading A Dangerous Language, Sulari Gentill

Author Name: 

There is no way in this world that a Rowland Sinclair book is going to lurk long on the reading piles around here - started this one last night. Want a Chrysler Airflow already.

From the Blurb:

Book 8 in the Rowland Sinclair Mystery Series.

Set against the glamorous backdrop of the 1930s in Australia and overseas, A Dangerous Language is the latest in the much loved, award winning Rowland Sinclair Mysteries.

#amreading She Be Damned, M.J. Tjia

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

From the recent reading piles I've been catching up with - strong first book in what's intended as an ongoing series.

From the Blurb:

London, 1863: Women in Waterloo are turning up dead, their sexual organs mutilated and removed. When another girl goes missing, fears grow that the killer may have claimed their latest victim.

The police are at a loss and so it falls to courtesan and professional detective, Heloise Chancey, to investigate.

#amreading - The Revelations of Carey Ravine, Debra Daley

Author Name: 

From the weekend's reading.

From the Blurb:

London in the 1770s is bursting with opportunity. It's a city fuelled by new ideas and new money, where everything is for sale - including entree into the ruling class.
