My Top Reads for 2013

This list comes from my Reviews for 2013 and comprises the books I awarded 5.0 to.
They are in no particular order:
  1. 5.0, BITTER WASH ROAD, Garry Disher
  2. 5.0, THE ROBBERS, Paul Anderson
  3. 5.0, DEAD WATER, Ann Cleeves  
  4. 5.0, TRUST YOUR EYES, Linwood Barclay
  5. 5.0, THE LEWIS MAN, Peter May 
  6. 5.0, THE LAST POLICEMAN, Ben H. Winters
  7. 5.0, TRACES OF RED, Paddy Richardson
  8. 5.0, DEADLY HARVEST, Michael Stanley 
  9. 5.0, CLOUDSTREET, Tim Winton

  11. 5.0, ALEX, Pierre Lemaitre
  12. 5.0, THE CUCKOO'S CALLING, J.K. Rowling writing as Robert Galbraith

I really much read that Vargas book - I love the off-beat way her stories evolve.
