Reading Kiwi crime in the British Columbia wilderness
During the past fortnight, I was based in rural British Columbia, helping a lady who has lived 33 years off the grid, building her own cabins in the wilderness, with her newest cabin on her property, which is 250km from the nearest bank, supermarket, or bus stop. With no TV or internet (or running water etc) in my cabin, outside of work/volunteer hours I had plenty of time to read, write, and reflect. Which was great. Amongst the books I read was this Kiwi crime novel I'd brought from back home with me on my travels - Trish McCormack's GLACIER MURDER.
