Some good books for the crime fiction lovers amongst you to look for this week.
My postings for the last week:
- SHATTER, Michael Robotham
My review. Do go and look for this book- It has been nominated for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger, and I think it will take awards and be shortlisted a few times. Michael Robotham is an Australian author.
- Last Day in Abu Dhabi
Just what it says. A bit of a summary.
- SHATTER and CORONER'S LUNCH in CWA Shortlist
Two Australian authors in the CWA shortlists. You might remember that Peter Temple won the Duncan Lawrie last year with THE BROKEN SHORE.
- ISABELLA MOON, Laura Benedict
My review of Laura Benedict's debut novel. Will suit those of you who like paranormal mixed in with your crime fiction.
- WILLOWS FOR WEEPING, Felicity Pulman
Another Australian author, but this time historical mystery fiction for teenagers.
- NEMESIS, Jo Nesbo
Another great read. Don't miss this one.
- More from Abu Dhabi
We visited the Falcon Hospital, the souq at Dubai, and the Mall of the Emirates
- Carnival of Criminal Minds #17
Author Martin Edwards is hosting this month's Carnival over on Do You Write Under Your Own Name
- Over on oz_mystery_readers we begin discussing Reginald Hill's A CURE FOR ALL DISEASES this week. In July 1-10 we discuss DEAD LOVELY by Helen Fitzgerald.
- Maddy Van Hertbruggen has been shortlisted for an Anthony Award for Special Services. The Yahoo Group 4MA (For Mystery Addicts) owes its existence to Maddy. 4MA is a very strong discussion group of just over 1000 members. It is very active so if you join, be prepared for lots of emails. This is not Maddy's first nomination for an award for special services to the industry. Last year she was nominated for a Spine Tingler Award.
