Under the Cold Bright Lights | Garry Disher
1 post | 1 read | 1 reading
Garry Disher has been giving us highly intelligent literary thrillers for decades and he gets better and better. Australian The young detectives call Alan Auhl a retread, but that doesnt faze him. He does things his own wayand gets results. He still lives with his ex-wife, off and on, in a big house full of random boarders and hard-luck stories. And hes still a cop, even though he retired from Homicide some years ago. He works cold cases now. Like the death of John Elphickhis daughters still convinced he was murdered, the coroner not so sure. Or the skeleton thats just been found under a concrete slab. Or the doctor who killed two wives and a girlfriend, and left no evidence at all. Auhl will stick with these cases until justice is done. One way or another. Garry Disher has published fifty titlesfiction, childrens books, anthologies, textbooks, the Wyatt thrillers and the Peninsula Crimes series. His previous standalone novel, Bitter Wash Road, won the German Crime Prize in 2016. Peter Temple and Garry Disher will be identified as the crime writers who redefined Australian crime fiction in terms of its form, content and style. Age A top-class writer. Times [Dishers] writing is subtle, terse and relentless...understated but astoundingly vivid. Weekend Herald Garry Disher deserves his reputation as one of Australias finest crime writers. Stuff NZ

Day 1 - #currentread! I messed up review deadlines in my Trello board dedicated to my @shelf.awareness reviews... and I‘ve already read/reviewed 2 books that aren‘t due for a few weeks, but these two are due tomorrow, and I haven‘t started either. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Do as many or as few #30junebooks prompts as you want to! But if you @ me in at least 15 posts throughout the month, at the end of the month you‘ll be entered to win a $15 Amazon gift card! 🙂
