Currently Reading – Speed Bump Himalayas by Mark Giblin

Speed Bump Himalayas by Mark Giblin

“Only go home when you’re half mad, half dead, or both.” It’s 1987, and Mark Giblin has just discovered the perfect escape from the brawling pubs and concrete towers of Thatcher’s Britain. India: mountains, beaches, chaotic, crumbling cities and an endless scope for travelling mayhem.

His mate – a young Sean Lock – joins him, but their trip starts badly. Once Sean regains his senses after landing in steaming hot, pre-monsoon Delhi, the pair stumble through Kashmir and Nepal on a ludicrous quest for fun. But on a remote mountain track, Mark discovers something far worse than the boredom of English suburbia, and is thrown headlong into a journey few could survive.

Speed Bump Himalayas will have you in stitches and tears as Mark charts the true tale of his remarkable journey, and his fight to stay alive.

Finished Recently – The Shoeless Child by J.A. Schneider

The Shoeless Child by J.A. Schneider

A little boy has seen a horrific murder but is too traumatized to speak. Detective Kerri Blasco struggles to connect with him…

Charlie Sparkes peeks out to see his mother and another young woman brutally shot. Hysterical, the brave child bolts into the cold November night for help. He screams and cries, only to fall into more trauma.

Homicide Detective Kerri Blasco is called to the murder scene. One woman lies dead next to the blood soaked rug where Rachel Sparkes was seriously wounded. With little memory of the attack, she has been taken to the hospital – but where is her child? He too, Kerri discovers, now lies in a hospital bed, mute and traumatized in a fetal position, refusing even food and water.

Charlie must have seen what happened. Kerri’s heart aches for this piteous little boy and she struggles to help him; struggles, too to find the monster who did this horrible crime. “It’s your kind of case,” Sergeant Alex Brand, Kerri’s boss and partner tells her, stepping up police urgency when another innocent is shot, and then another…

Kerri Blasco finds herself more emotionally obsessed with this case than with any other, despite clear and onrushing danger to herself…

Reading Next – Force of Nature by Jane Harper

Force of Nature by Jane Harper


Is Alice here? Did she make it? Is she safe? In the chaos, in the night, it was impossible to say which of the four had asked after Alice’s welfare. Later, when everything got worse, each would insist it had been them.

Five women reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking along the muddy track. Only four come out the other side.

The hike through the rugged landscape is meant to take the office colleagues out of their air-conditioned comfort zone and teach resilience and team building. At least that is what the corporate retreat website advertises.

Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk has a particularly keen interest in the whereabouts of the missing bushwalker. Alice Russell is the whistleblower in his latest case – and Alice knew secrets. About the company she worked for and the people she worked with.

Far from the hike encouraging teamwork, the women tell Falk a tale of suspicion, violence and disintegrating trust. And as he delves into the disappearance, it seems some dangers may run far deeper than anyone knew.
