SLEUTHING WITH THE NANCYS

R W R McDonald caught everyone's eye with his debut THE NANCY'S. The second in the series is out now and Lindy's comments show that she's a fan!

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Eleven-year-old New Zealander Tippy Chan just loves her uncle's old Nancy Drew books, but what she would really love is a mystery to solve. When her Uncle Pike comes from Sydney to stay for a fortnight - duty-free alcohol, big red suitcase and sparkly boyfriend in tow - ostensibly to look after her while her Mum gets away on a much-needed break, her dreams come true.

A teacher disappears and turns up murdered, and that's all Tippy, Pike and Devon need to form The Nancys, an amateur detecting club. Of course, things get a bit more complicated, and a lot more dangerous... A book that combines small town shenanigans and murder, with a great big catty dose of gay-fabulousity (much of which goes over Tippy's head!) Entertaining and funny, but also, because it's told through Tippy's eyes, a rather sweet read. Lindy

BLOOD, SWEAT & BEERS

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- The title for Matt Nable's latest novel, STILL, comes from the turmoil that surrounds Senior Constable Ned Potter, at work and at home, from which he catches glimpses of quiet as he gazes out over the water.

Set in Darwin in 1963, Nable captures the salt air, the warm sea breeze, the stifling heat as well as the heavy drinking culture of the time - I hope they've since eased off a bit! This is a well-paced mystery that will satisfy all who've been enjoying the Australian crime fiction boom of recent years from Jane Harper, Chris Hammer, Gary Disher, Christian White, ...and the list goes on!

And some of you may already be aware of Matt's immersive performance in the movie adaptation of The Dry (an excellent adaptation - a future classic). Craig Kirchner

A SKY HIGH THRILLER

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Calling all passengers for Flight 416 to New York. Your flight is now boarding at Gate 5. This is the last call for Flight 416. Please make your way to the gate now.

The list of names lining up to give their nod of approval to this in-flight thriller is impressive... Rankin, Child, Patterson, McKinty, Evanovich, Winslow, McTiernan, Gabaldon, Cavanagh.

The set-up is dramatic - a flight where the captain is given a shocking choice by terrorists: Crash the plane or your family dies. The difference is that this attack is being managed from the ground, not by a forceful takeover on the plane itself, however a terrorist is concealed among those on board. The character of Jo as Senior Flight Attendant is particularly strong as she works through how best to support her Captain. The terror of the family held hostage and the extreme pressure on the Captain is compelling. So too the terrorists are given pathos and some degree of empathy, without undermining the gross transgressions their actions represent.

If you are wanting a fast-paced, conundrum thriller then this is for you. Just perhaps wait until you've safely landed before cracking this one open for your holiday reading. Craig Kirchner

Australian Crime

THE GREAT AUSSIE (AND NZ!) CRIME FICTION BOOM!

Craig Sisterson is a crime fiction aficionado and author who has recently published SOUTHERN CROSS CRIME, the first comprehensive guide to modern Australian and New Zealand crime writing. He says you should think of it as a kind of Lonely Planet guide to Aussie/NZ crime fiction!

With a foreword by Michael Robotham, Sisterson showcases key titles from more than 200 storytellers. Fascinating insights are added through in-depth interviews with some of the prime suspects who paved the way or instigated the global boom, including Jane Harper, Michael Robotham, Paul Cleave, Emma Viskic, Paul Thomas, and Candice Fox.

Great if you want some ideas of who to read next!
