Product Description

Denny O'Callaghan is afraid to open his eyes.

He'd been out drinking last night with the guys, and his head throbs, his arms hurt, and he can't remember what he's done.

He opens his eyes. Blood. On his sheets. His pillowcase.

Then he gets a call: his ex-wife was murdered last night.

He desperately tries to piece together what happened. But he can't explain how he got the scratches on his arms, the police want to know about the domestic violence report his ex filed against him, and his buddies say he was raging against her last night before he stormed off on his own.

Right about the time she was murdered.

It's been ages since I posted, so here's a taste of what I've been reading. Another one of my long lists. Sorry!  :-[

The Seventh Plague: A Sigma Force Novel by James Rollins. Despite being the 12th in the series, the quality seems to be holding up. An enjoyable, if slightly implausible adventure romp.

Summary Justice by John Fairfax. An unusual murder trial - the defence barrister is himself a convicted murderer. I listened to the audiobook and thought it was pretty good.

Moral Defense (Samantha Brinkman Book 2) by Marcia Clark. Second in the Brinkman series, written by the real life prosecutor in the OJ Simpson trial. Her main protanganist in these books is a defence barrister. I have no idea how much of Ms. Clark's character is included in her fictional creation, but let's just say she's the kind of woman you'd want defending you, but not perhaps someone you'd actually want to be friends with. For more of an insight into her character, be sure to read book 1 in the series first.

High Force: A DCI Ryan Mystery (The DCI Ryan Mysteries Book 5) by L J Ross. Police procedural / thriller. This book begins pretty much where the last one ended and finally brings that story arc to a conclusion. I'll be interested to see if the author continues with these characters in a different storyline.

And The Rest is History: Time Travel Meets History In This Explosive Bestselling Series (The Chronicles of St Mary's Series Book 8 ) by Jodi Taylor. Yet another instalment in the continuing story of the disaster magnets of St Mary's. Lot's of laughs, despite quite a dark storyline at times. Many an unexpected turn of events, some resolved, some not. I loved it. I know some US readers have been unable to get the Kindle version because of formatting issues. I hope you get your St. Mary's fix soon!

Down Under: Travels in a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson. I've read most of Bill Bryson's books and can't think of one I didn't like. I read most of his travelogues pre Kindle days, but I realised recently this one had escaped the net and I managed to get the ebook from the library. I really enjoyed it - not only some fascinating facts about Australia, but he manages to be humourous without losing sight of the need to be informative.

Dying Games (Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mystery Book 6) by Steve Robinson. An bit of a departure from the previous books in the series, in that there was very little historical element to this. Rather than having to sort out one single genealogical mystery, our hero has to work out several smaller ones - clues to where a serial killer will strike next, all the while knowing he's probably the last name on said list.

Every Seventh Wave by Daniel Glattauer--the sequel to Love Virtually--which is also written entirely as emails.

The Sixth Window by Rachel Abbott. One of her better books I think. The suspense builds and builds and with each new revelation you think you know who the bad guys are, but it keeps changing all the time. The twists keep on coming, right up to the last page. The main police characters are the same in each book, but the stories are stand alone - I don't think you need to have read any of the others (I haven't read them all) to enjoy this one. Recommended.

I'm currently reading Emperor of the Fireflies by Sarah Ash.

It's the second book in her Tide Dragons series, based on Japanese mythology. The dragons are water-based rather than fiery. I really love the book, especially as one of the main characters is a Kitsune, or fox spirit!

A busy life, ADD, and the golden age of TV have conspired to keep me from finishing a book since the hunger games trilogy came out, but I am currently reading the following:

Carl Sagan / The Demon Haunted World
Margaret Atwood / The Handmaid's Tale
Giovanni Bocaccio / The Decameron
The Memoirs of Harriette Wilson Volumes One and Two Written By Herself

I am re-reading Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton. In spite of reading it several times before, I'm still surprised by the prose and astonished by some of the ideas. It feels like the first time I've read some of the chapters.

I've also been dipping into some modern fantasy: John Gwynne (Malice), Daniel Abraham and one or two others. trying to reignite my former passion for the genre.

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. Recently saw and enjoyed the film, and will soon be able to say I read and enjoyed the book. It's so often one or the other - this is a refreshing change.
