Five books in five minutes with Craig Sisterson

Crime fiction reviewer and champion of antipodean authors Craig Sisterson is back with “five books in five minutes” and he doesn’t disappoint. Craig is the author of Southern Cross Crime, The Pocket Essential Guide to the Crime Fiction, Film and TV of Australia and New Zealand. He’s my go-to-guy every time for crime fiction book recommendations. Here’s the five books he has recommended (October 2021).

1979 by Val McDermid

The Last Guests by J.P. Pomare (listen to the Killer Content interview with J.P. )
