  1. Hi Craig. Not sure if you are interested in new Australian thriller authors, but this one has been getting some great reviews in the NZ as well as Aussie press. The author is L.A. Larkin and the thriller is The Genesis Flaw. Here is a link to a piece in the 10 Aug NZ Herald: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=10665021
