Greenwood, Kerry (Death at Victoria Dock)

I like that this one (number 4 of 20, it's clear I'm never finishing this series...) delves into the communist and anarchist tendencies of the characters from this time period in Australia, as well as specifically those of Bert and Cec (her Jack-of-all-trades). There's a lot about Australia's past I know nothing about - even after visiting some museums while we were there last year - so it's fascinating to hear this from the horse's mouth (so to speak).

The rest of the novel is exactly what you'd expect - thrills, chills and spills - except for one aspect of the ending which made me smile happily for a bit, as I actually didn't expect it. Plus one for Greenwood and not using her cookie cutter too exactly.
