It's time for everyone to nominate a book for our May 2018 group read! Each month during 2018 we will have a different genre to nominate - for May, it's Crime

Please remember, every nomination must be by an Australian author.

NOTE: Only the beginning of a series (if a series) please :)

This thread will be open until 10th April, then our nominations will go to the vote:) Good luck and happy picking!

Authors and publishers, please don't nominate your own work!

Our Moderator choice for May is The Fairy Wren by Ashley Capes The Fairy Wren by Ashley Capes

Hi, I hope everyone is having a nice and dry Easter....today around my neck of the woods the rain seems to have left .
Not being much of an expert on Crime Writers apart from Candice Fox and Michael (Robotham )? I did a bit of a search and discovered this author. This would definitely appeal to me.
