            Veteran reporter Jack McEvoy has taken down killers before, but when a woman he had a one-night stand with is murdered in a particularly brutal way, McEvoy realises he might be facing a criminal mind unlike any he's ever encountered. McEvoy investigates - against the warnings ...of the police and his own editor - and makes a shocking discovery that connects the crime to other mysterious deaths across the country. But his inquiry hits a snag when he himself becomes a suspect. As he races to clear his name, McEvoy's findings point to a serial killer working under the radar of law enforcement for years and using personal data shared by the victims themselves to select and hunt his targets.

            Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern is a leader for a new generation, one tired of inertia in the face of pressing issues such as climate change, immigration and the rise of far-right terrorism. Ardern was catapulted onto the international stage with her grace and compas...sion following the Christchurch mosque shooting. Oprah Winfrey invited us to 'channel our inner Jacindas' as praise for Ardern flooded headlines and social media. The world's youngest female head of government, and only the second elected world leader to give birth while in office, Ardern describes herself as a progressive and a social democrat. In this revealing biography, journalist Madeleine Chapman discovers the woman behind the headlines. Politically engaged from an early age, Ardern has encountered her fair share of sexism, but rather than let that harden her she advocates 'rising above' critics. In her first press conference, she announced an election campaign of 'relentless positivity'. The tactic was a resounding success- donations poured in and Labour rebounded in the polls. But can Ardern live up to her promise? What does her new style of leadership look like in practice? And what can we learn from the world's reaction to this inspiring leader?

            The most anticipated political memoir of the year. A frank account from National MP Judith Collins of the highs and lows of a political life. From humble beginnings as the daughter of Labour-voting farming parents, Judith Collins has carved a path to almost the very top of politi...cs. The youngest daughter of older parents, Judith Collins grew up in rural Walton, Waikato on a dairy farm. At the age of 10 she entered politics, running for Class President. She won. After a successful career as a lawyer, Collins became the MP for Papakura in 2002, alongside fellow new recruit, John Key. When Key and National won office in 2008, Collins became the Minister for Police, Corrections and Veterans. Funny, forthright and fearless, Collins reveals the truth behind what it is like to survive - and thrive - as a senior female politician for two decades.

            Husna's Story is written by Husna's husband Farid Ahmed. They were praying at El Noor Mosque in Christchurch when a gunman burst in and shot and killed 51 people and injured many others in a terrorist attack. This book tells Husna's story, describing the day of the attack - in al...l of its normal, mundane detail up until the tragedy, and then the horrendous tragedy of what followed. Interwoven with this is the story of Husna's life, telling of the selflessness and bravery with which she lived her life. As well as looking after her paraplegic husband, Husna was an important member of the community, helping women when they were giving birth, running classes for children and helping many others. Her last selfless act was going back into the mosque to look for her husband on that fateful day. She had already led the other women and children to safety. Tragically she was shot. Husna's husband, Farid Ahmed, quite incredibly, forgives the alleged killer. His remarkable philosophy of forgiveness, peace and love is an example of how religion and faith, through personal application, can be a tool for navigating the most horrific of tragedies.

            The Wine O'clock Myth takes an in-depth look at the drinking habits of New Zealand women. It's written through the lens of Lotta Dann's own story and her work in the field of recovery and addiction today. It contains evidence-based research gleaned from primary sources, and numer...ous interviews with experts in many fields. As well as examining the normalising of alcohol in New Zealand, The Wine O'clock Myth explores the glorification that goes on with regards to this drug. It discusses when and how the alcohol industry began specifically targeting women, unpicking the tactics they employ to target female customers. It looks at the rise of the now-ubiquitous 'Wine Mum' culture on social media and the role the alcohol industry and media companies play in perpetuating this. It also investigates the impact that regular, heavy drinking has on women, both physically and emotionally. It looks at the emotional impacts - the numbing, dulling and disconnection that can occur - and the physical impacts: the problems alcohol can cause in the body and the increased risk of diseases. But while the book offers a big-picture analysis, it also provides an intimate view of the issue by featuring the voices of Kiwi women sharing their personal stories, revealing the pervasive and negative impact alcohol can have on a woman's life. These personal reflections contain tales of emotional disconnection, diminished power, confused thinking and damaged relationships. There are also uplifting stories of the remarkable transformations that can occur when alcohol is removed.
