Read from August 04 to September 10, 2012

Burning Lies is a well written thriller that would be enjoyed by all readers, regardless of gender. Its themes are ingrained in our Australian psyche, and there would be few of us who have not been touched by bushfires and their devastating effects. The author's experience as a pilot, and her familiarity with the setting show through in the wonderful detail that helps power the story to life. I cannot recall one incidence where I thought she got it wrong - everything from tow points on cars to firefighting hose delivery volumes was impeccably researched.

The characters came to life on the pages. Complex human beings with both weaknesses and strengths. All thoroughly believable. I recommend Burning Lies for anyone who enjoys a good story, especially a good Aussie suspense story with a touch of crime and romance.

Four and a half stars.
