Brandon Sanderson writes great stories and writes them fast. This one is short novella set in a technologically advanced alternate reality where detectives can create a ‘snapshot’ of the world in order to relive a period of time and solve crimes. Davis and Chaz are interesting characters, and you might guess where the story is going, how it gets there will keep you guessing until the end! 4/5 stars

Peter James writes a very detailed and riveting plot that keeps you wondering throughout the book. He kept me thinking how he managed to put together such an intricate web of clues to reach an intense conclusion.

Louise Penny is a highly-acclaimed Canadian crime writer who creates characters who are complex and very real. Her plots are gripping but without graphic violence. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache digs into mysteries set in and around the Quebec village of Three Pines. I’m hoping to go and listen to her at this year’s Adelaide Writer’s Festival.
