So I'm closing in on completion - one South American, and one Antarctica-set book to go for me, once I finish the novel I'm currently reading.
Earlier this week I finished my first Antarctica-set thriller, ICE STATION by Australian author Matthew Reilly. I will post more about this book, which was incredibly mindless, verging on the ridiculous at times, but still kind of fun to read, soon.
Now I'm partway through A BALI CONSPIRACY MOST FOUL by Shamini Flint - a novel written by a Singapore-based author about a portly Singapore detective of Sikh origins who travels around Asia solving crimes. The first book in the series was set in Malaysia, and this one (which was published here in NZ late last year) is set in Bali (Indonesia), following the high-profile terrorist bombings there.
So far it seems like a nice, 'lighter', mystery read - with interesting characters and settings. Has anyone else read any of Shamini Flint's work? What do you think?
