Book Mutterings - 25-31 January 2008

The word is getting out there, the insidious creep is gaining momentum and the book that has featured in every muttering so far is once again getting a mention. That's right, Moonlight Downs (or Diamond Dove) is starting to garner reader feedback with Lora Bruggeman at Pop Goes Fiction proclaiming that Adrian Hyland "creates a great portrayal of life in the Northern Territory".

The week before last I mentioned that Glenn Harper at International Noir Fiction had read Bad Debts by Peter Temple. Well it appears that he's managed to pick up one of Temple's stand-alone novels, Identity Theory (known in Australia as In the Evil Day) and gives it the going over treatment.
