Autumn might be slow to my garden but the street trees in Kandos are beginning to colour up and dropped their pretty leaves which has nothing to do with this week's book other than they might be vaguely like drops of blood.
A book I have read recently
This weeks book The Broken Shore by Peter Temple is another unusual selection for me (chosen because it is on the Australian top 50 list). I think the only crime novels I have read previously are some Agatha Christies many many years ago. Of course, I have watched crime shows on TV. This book was just like a TV show with an endearing, quirky cop. If it was a TV show it would come with a trigger warning "Contains frequent course language and racist slurs" but that didn't bother me. Temple has a wonderful ear for Australian vernacular, rich visual description and tells a good yarn.
