A-Z Blogging Challenge: Letter W

Heading into the home stretch on the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Here we are at Day 23 and April 27th is brought to you by the Letter W.

W is for

WWW: Wednesdays which is hosted by MizB ofver at Should Be Reading. This is a weekly meme that I have been participating in for almost a year now. This week we'll be taking a look at two week's worth of reading....because last Wednesday I was too busy having surgery to pay attention to what I'd been reading.....

To play along just answer the following three questions....

*What are you currently reading?
*What did you just recently finish reading?
*What do you think you'll read next?

An Author Bites the Dust by Arthur W. Upfield.
A literary clique is gathered together at a house party put on by Mervyn Blake. Blake is a famous author and critic who is used to character assassination and verbal backstabbing. The house party is shocked when an actual assassination takes place and their host if found dead in his writing room. The cause of death is not immediately apparent. Detective Inspector Bonaparte finds himself in a world that is a far cry from the bush characters he is used to and must find clues among the literary hates and jealousies. It is Bony's shrewd observation of human nature that will win the day.

Just so you know...this is two weeks worth. I wasn't up to posting (and had no computer in the hospital anyway) last Wednesday.
