MICHAEL ROBOTHAM - WHEN YOU ARE MINE

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Philomena McCarthy hasn't spoken to her father in years. It's more than awkward, because after a childhood trauma she decided to join the police, and Dad and his brothers are notorious for their lifelong criminal activities. She doesn't let on to many people - and certainly very few of her colleagues in the London Metropolitan Police - that she's so connected, though her fiancé knows.

When a routine call from a concerned neighbour turns out to be domestic violence - a decorated policeman beating his mistress - and it is hushed up at the expense of her reputation, Phil's sympathies lie with the victim,Tempe, and a tentative friendship is struck up. But as time goes by, something more sinister is also happening, and Phil turns to her father for information and help, despite wondering how much he knows and how much he has done...

A nice and twisty tale from the master of 'page-turning-keep-reading-didn't-see-that-coming' crime! Lindy Jones


Michael Robotham has also won the 2021 UK Crime Writers' Association (CWA) Ian Fleming Steel Dagger award for best thriller for his novel When She Was Good. Robotham has previously twice won the CWA Gold Dagger for best crime novel of the year: in 2020 for Good Girl Bad Girl and in 2015 for Life or Death.

YOU HAD IT COMING

B M CARROLL was in-store to sign copies of her latest thriller (just before Lockdown). In her quiet brogue she told us a little about YOU HAD IT COMING.

When paramedic Megan Lowe is called to the scene of an attempted murder, all she can do is try to save the victim. But as the man is lifted onto a stretcher, she realises she knows him. She despises him. Why should she save his life when he destroyed hers?

DIGGING UP DIRT

PAMELA HART also called in for a chat and to sign our copies of DIGGING UP DIRT before we plunged into Lockdown again. If you are wanting something to brighten your mood, this 'very Sydney' story is just what the doctor ordered.

Renovations are hell. And that's before you find the body beneath the floorboards. An intriguing mystery from a stylish new voice in crime fiction, for readers of Kerry Greenwood and Holly Throsby.

CATCH US THE FOXES

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Nicola West's dark tale is set in the sparkling coastal town of Kiama, not too far south of Sydney, yet the townsfolk may not be enjoying their literary moment given the portrayal here. Then again, maybe they'll love it!

The youthful protagonist of Marlowe (just out of uni) is full of barely contained energy, which is a change-up from old cops, lawyers & journos with complicated pasts.

The story moves fast as she gets drawn deeper into unravelling the mystery surrounding the murder of her friend, Lily, and the quandary of who to trust - even herself - makes this an enjoyable and engrossing read. 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!
