Review of Alix Bosco's CUT & RUN in Latitude

The current (Spring) issue of Latitude magazine has included a short review of debutant Kiwi crime writer Alix Bosco's CUT & RUN on its books pages.

Latitude is the lifestyle magazine of the Canterbury region of New Zealand; a 120-page glossy quarterly packed with great large features on interesting people, places, and issues - as well as travel articles, book reviews, and several other interesting columns. I have started writing for the magazine (and have an eight-page feature on multisport pioneer and Coast to Coast founder Robin Judkins in the Spring issue), but haven't as yet contributed to their book reviews pages. It's a very cool magazine, and I'm glad to be able to write for them.

Joanne Taylor (the editor of Latitude and the book reviewer) has kindly allowed me to reprint the CUT & RUN review on the Crime Watch blog, as Latitude is not available online.

Alix BoscoIt is great to see a NZ author producing an edgy and fastpaced thriller. CUT & RUN is the first novel for Auckland based Alix Bosco. With a legal researcher as the key character, the plot has unexpected twists and turns for those who enjoy reading in this genre. I look forward to more from Bosco.

As I mentioned several weeks ago, you can read the first chapter of CUT & RUN here. I am writing reviews of the book (which I thoroughly enjoyed) for a couple of publications in NZ and overseas, and will post links to those reviews as they are published.
