Another half dozen into the library, three favourites and three new-to-me authors ....
|Ian Loome - Quinn Checks In (2014) - purchased copy|
|Stephen Mack Jones - Dead of Winter (2021) - purchased copy|
I think this was on offer for about a quid, maybe two. I've heard great things about Jones and his August Snow series, of which this is the third. I do like Detroit as a setting for crime fiction.
|Paul Heatley - Snow Burn (2021) - purchased copy|
An old favourite. Snow Burn is the 4th in the Tom Rollins series. I really enjoyed Blood Line, the first in the series. I've some catching up to do.
|Stella Rimington - The Devil's Bargain (2022) - Net Galley reviewer site|
An author I've been meaning to try for years. This is the first in a new series hopefully. I do like a bit of espionage in my reading.
|Colin Conway - Cutler's Chase (2021) - review copy from author|
I really need to keep up with Conway. He writes fast. Second in series and I've got to read the first yet!
|Deon Meyer - The Dark Flood (2022) - Net Galley reviewer site|
Another author and series that I love. Meyer has been read a few times before....
Disappearances ensnare two South African detectives in a web of corruption in this stunning thriller by the Barry Award–winning author of The Last Hunt.
Assigned to investigate the disappearance of a young university student and brilliant computer programmer detectives Benny Griessel and Vaughn Cupido hit dead ends. But the trail—including the death of a fellow police officer—leads to a series of gun heists and the alarming absence of certain weapons from the police registry, the ramifications of which could be devastating.
As Griessel and Cupido intensify their search, real estate agent Sandra Steenberg confronts her own crisis: state corruption has caused the real estate market to crash, exacerbating the dire financial straits facing her family. She puts aside her misgivings to work for a notorious billionaire and playboy, only to have him disappear on her. Now Griessel is forced to juggle between the man’s bitter wife, protective lawyer, and Steenberg, the last person to see him alive.
With propulsive and intricate plotting, sharp prose, and an ending that takes one’s breath away just when the dust seems to have settled, The Dark Flood spotlights the state capture and corruption that has overtaken the country, lending political weight to a powerful story.
Praise for the Benny Griessel series
“[An] outstanding series.” —The Wall Street Journal
