    One thought on “Autumn Maze”

    1. The best book of Jon Cleary in his Scobie Malone series thus far! His writing has such fluidity & charm that you smile at the old world satires which he effortlessly pines. This is such a thriller and edge of the seat book that you can't keep it down till you have read it all. Scobie Molone and Russ Clements again are in the middle of multiple homicides, this time the son of the Police minister has been murdered and that makes the murder mystery all the more exciting. The plot unravels only [...]

    2. Another great Jon Cleary/Scobie Malone detective tale ; set in Sydney.Perhaps the ending was a little rushed/convoluted, but thats being 'picky' :)
