Around the Traps

Elisabeth Vincentelli at The Determined Dilettante talks about her recent chat with Peter Temple commending him on his ability to write good dialogue, also mentioning that he has managed to give police procedurals a fresh feel with The Broken Shore. You can burrow even further to the Time Out New York site to read her interview with Temple.

Meanwhile Sally at Books and Musings From Down Under has reviewed Cherry Pie by Leigh Redhead rating it as enjoyable and summing it up with "PEEPSHOW is a good read, full of black humour, hot sex and violence. None of it gratuitous; and all of it appropriate for the setting."

And finally, if you're missing your plug and you need to take a bath, don't use a sink plunger.
