Mr Nobody

The woodland was far more open, with very little undergrowth, and whilst Jemma had enthused at the opportunity it afforded to see the beauty of these pale barked eucalypts, Tracey had muttered, ‘Just looks sparse and scrubby to me.’

Serendipity

Behind his eyelids, he could still see them, and a hot wave of embarrassment flooded over him. His parents, standing on the platform of Perth Station, wreathed in smoke and steam, waving him goodbye as he set off for Adelaide to start his 4th year of Medical studies.

Bolas buys By Kenneth R Vickery

Bolus Buys is the story of the aftermath of Sir Martin Haldane’s sudden death. His unexpected departure leaves his tentacular business matters in turmoil and as everyone tries to outwit one another, keep the peace, gain the upper hand and prevent mayhem (sometimes all four at once) the ghost of Sir Martin watches on, sometimes with apoplectic rage, sometimes with distaste, and sometimes with pain. Sir Martin was not much loved in life, and in death he’s not much loved either.

Poppy By Kenneth R Vickery

Poppy is such an unusual book it almost defies genres. If I say it’s about police corruption, a good cop whose reputation is at stake, a teenaged dealer, a Polish convict, racial tension, murder, and revenge I’d be telling the truth, but that description gives a distorted picture of the warm, witty, character-driven confection that is Poppy.
