            'Chris Hammer is a great writer - a leader in Australian noir.' - Michael Connelly For half a lifetime, journalist Martin Scarsden has run from his past. But now there is no escaping. He'd vowed never to return to his hometown, Port Silver, and its traumatic memories. But now his... new partner, Mandy Blonde, has inherited an old house in the seaside town and Martin knows their chance of a new life together won't come again. Martin arrives to find his best friend from school days has been brutally murdered, and Mandy is the chief suspect. With the police curiously reluctant to pursue other suspects, Martin goes searching for the killer. And finds the past waiting for him. He's making little progress when a terrible new crime starts to reveal the truth. The media descend on Port Silver, attracted by a story that has it all: sex, drugs, celebrity and religion. Once again, Martin finds himself in the front line of reporting. Yet the demands of deadlines and his desire to clear Mandy are not enough: the past is ever present. An enthralling and propulsive thriller from the acclaimed and bestselling author of Scrublands.

            Trying to shield yourself from disinformation and deep fakes? Cyrus Krohn offers a 'five-step program' to fight back. This book rings true. -Jill Dougherty, Former CNN Moscow Bureau ChiefImagine an imminent America where citizens are bombarded with personalized political messages... from every smart device - yet information is so suspect, nobody can tell what the truth is. It means oceans of disinformation engineered to sow false beliefs or simply disorient. The coronavirus pandemic provided a foretaste of an infuriating, dystopian future. From the start Americans fought over the most basic facts of the crisis, from death tolls to quack cures to the wisdom of stay-at-home orders. The splintered digital infosphere bred confusion and delusion, some of it fatal. Now think of our campaigns and elections. The digital information age means more than hyper-targeted, just-for-you messages from insurance companies and presidential candidates alike. Big Data is on the way to fueling information environments so fine-tuned, no two of us hold the same view of reality, and no two voters hear the same pitch. Already, citizens don't know who to trust or what to believe - about COVID-19 or anything else. If we ask nothing more of tech providers or digital citizens, the fog will continue to thicken. Irritation will merge into despair and then numbness... and democracy teeters. Digital pioneer Cyrus Krohn knows the territory, and in Bombarded: How to Fight Back Against the Online Assault on Democracy, Krohn locates the roots of our blooming political chaos in the earliest days of the World Wide Web. But he goes beyond recounting 25 years of destabilizing Internet shock waves and his own role in building digital culture. Krohn rolls out a provocative action plan for rescuing the American system of campaigns and elections while there is still time.

            The Field (EPUB ebook)

            By Richardson, Tracy

            A high school soccer player embarks on a visionary journey of self-discovery in this young adult sci-fi fantasy novel. Varsity soccer player Eric Horton is an unbeatable goalkeeper, saving shot after shot with seemingly supernatural ability. But at night, Eric is plagued with nig...htmares of explosions and screams. As strange happenings start to unfold around him, he begins to wonder if what he's seeing isn't just a dream. When a new student, Renee, appears in his science class, he could swear he's known her forever. But that's impossible-right? Then he meets her father, who's been conducting experiments with "the Universal Energy Field" and "Collective Consciousness". Eric is intrigued by the groundbreaking ideas that we are all connected by the same energy and are all more powerful than we realize. But can any of it be real? As his relationship with Renee evolves and his knowledge of the Field increases, Eric will be tested beyond anything he's experienced before. He must decide whether he believes in that part of himself which ties him to the world around him, and he must access it-or lose everything he's been working to keep.
