Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas spent with family and friends. This will be my inaugural In My Mailbox entry (weekly feature hosted by The Story Siren) but given ’tis the season to be jolly, it’s what books were in Santa’s Sack for me this week!
My wonderful family gave me the following, plus ‘Christmas Money’ to choose quite a few more books for myself :
Seven Ancient Wonders by Matthew Reilly
Four a.m. and the smart money’s home in bed. More importantly for Murray Whelan, his son Red isn’t. He’s gone missing, on the run somewhere in Sydney. So what’s Murray doing in a greasy spoon at the fruit and veg markets, nursing his facial bruising and talking to Donny Maitland about a grass-roots takeover of the truckies’ union?
Working a deal for Angelo Agnelli, Minister for Transport and sparring partner of the United Haulage Workers, that’s what. Business as usual for Murray. Until the bloke who inflicted the bruises turns up to do some more inflicting. And then turns up dead. Murray needs to stay out of trouble long enough to find Red. But that, it seems, might be a pretty big ask.
