A Killer's Mind by Mike Omer
Amazing detective book. I've read the half, and it's so interesting.
It's the first book in the series; there are three, if I'm not mistaken.
If you are into detectives - highly recommend
There's a movie called Sports and Hitler?
Sounds like my kids holidays with my father.

Ask them what they did at Grandads and the young fella will say "Darts, Snooker, Hitler and Trump".

The Hittler part is more WW2. He isn't a Trump fan, just looks at all of the news as he's an idiot. Trump not my father, well maybe the second one as well.
I can't see a thread about books, so I thought I'd start one. Apologies if I've missed it.
I'm mainly interested in crime fiction, thrillers etc to while away the retirement hours until next season, and I'm looking for some advice about NZ/Aus authors.
Years ago I read and really enjoyed Peter Temple's books and Paul Thomas' Tito Ihaka stories.
I've recently been hoovering up every Garry Disher and Chris Hammer book I can find up here ( England ), but getting info about other, similar authors is hard to find - I'm not going to believe everything Amazon 'recommends'.
Has anybody got any recommendations for similar stuff? Reading "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot was enlightening and deeply moving. It offers crucial insights into medical ethics and patient rights. When writing my nursing essay, reviews provided invaluable guidance and ensured my arguments were well-structured and compelling. Highly recommend both the book and the service for nursing students!
