Currently reading Jane Harper's latest. The Dry and the Wet (Force of Nature), so now for the Cold (the Survivors). Always well written and entertaining.

Paula Hawkins puts together an excellent character and crime novel. It is a bit of a Thursday Murder Club with bite. It does suffer a little from a time jumping storyline but finishes well. Writers writing about writing leaves you thinking that they ...more
Andy is starting A Slow Fire Burning: Paula Hawkins puts together an excellent mystery, filled with interesting characters. It is a sort of Thursday Murder club with punch. As Paula herself alludes it suffers a little from its jumping timeline and similarity of characters.

“It was an interminably difficult job when talking to non-scientists. They did not want to know about the ifs and buts, nor the pedantic small difference between processes. Any hole in the ground was a sinkhole.”
Andy McGee, Sublime Murder

“They worship Anu, the god of all the gods, who gives their kings a divine right to rule, to collect possessions for themselves and take slaves. It is not a system of harmony with nature or equality between beings.”
