              This dark and dazzling debut introduces a fabulously flawed and determined heroine reminiscent of Jane Tennison. She was slipping away. The further she fell, the closer the clouds seemed to come. Wispy transparent slipstreams of white. Cirrus. Pain smashed her head. Floating... W...hen journalist Chrissie O'Brian lands a senior job at The Argus, she is desperate to escape the nightmares of her past and make a fresh start. Her life may be a mess but her job is something she can do better than anyone else - and the only thing that's keeping her sane, and in this world. A battle brewing on the waterfront between big business and the union is just the kind of headlinegrabbing story to get her career back on track. But when a female dockworker whose warnings Chrissie ignored turns up dead, she blames herself and becomes obsessed with investigating the case. But she is handicapped by her daily battle to resist numbing the pain of her past with alcohol and pills - a battle she doesn't always win. After a gruesome threat lands on her desk and another worker is killed, Chrissie knows she is close to the truth, perhaps too close. When it's clear someone will do anything to stop her publishing the story, Chrissie decides it's time to take matters into her own hands. 'A gritty tale full of twists, Where The Truth Lies is a page turner packed with compelling characters. An exciting new voice in Australian crime fiction.' Jane Harper, bestselling author of The Dry

              In the bestselling tradition of THE GIRL FROM MUNICH and THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ, an extraordinary tale based on the true story of how the author's mother survived World War II against all odds. In 1946 two young Hungarian refugees arrive in Naples determined to start a new li...fe after losing everyone they loved before the war. Vera Frankel and her best friend, Edith Ban, are haunted by their terrifying escape from a train headed for Auschwitz after their mothers threw them from the carriage, promising they would follow. But instead the girls found themselves alone in a frozen, alien land. They managed to find refuge and barter for their lives by working on an isolated farm in Austria until the end of the war. Armed with a letter of recommendation from an American general, Vera finds work and new hope at the United States Embassy and, despite her best intentions, falls in love the handsome and enigmatic Captain Anton Wight. But as Vera and Edith grapple with the aftermath of the war, so too does Anton, and when he suddenly disappears, Vera is forced to drastically change course. Their quest to overcome their terrible losses and rebuild their lives takes Vera and Edith from Naples to Ellis Island to Venezuela and finally Sydney as they begin to build careers, reunite with old friends - and find love. Heartbreakingly moving and compelling, THE LIGHT AFTER THE WAR is inspired by the story of the author's Holocaust survivor mother and her escape with her best friend from a train to Auschwitz. Praise for The Light After the War`You will be swept away by this fast-paced, heartbreaking and hopeful tale of friendship, family, second chances and the enduring power of love, based on the true story of the author's mother in war-torn Europe.'

              The explosive memoir of the two legendary drug enforcement agents responsible for taking down Pablo Escobar and the subject of the hit Netflix series `Narcos'. Javier Pena and Steve Murphy risked their lives hunting large and small drug traffickers in the decades they spent worki...ng for the US Drug Enforcement Administration. But their biggest challenge was the hunt for Pablo Escobar in Colombia. The partners, who began their careers as small-town cops, have been immortalised in Netflix's `Narcos', a fictionalised account of their hunt for Escobar. Now, for the first time, they tell the real story of how they brought down the world's first narco-terrorist and ended the reign of terror of the world's most wanted criminal. Manhunters takes you deep inside the inner workings of the Search Bloc, the joint Colombian-US task force that resulted in an intensive 18-month operation that tracked Escobar. Between July 1992 and December 1993, Pena and Murphy lived on the edge, setting up camp in Medellin at the Carlos Holguin Military Academy. There, they lived and worked with the Colombian authorities, hunting down a man thought to be untouchable. Their terrifying first-hand experience coupled with stories from the DEA's de-classified files on the search for Escobar forms the beating heart of Manhunters, a gripping account of how two determined and courageous agents risked everything to capture the world's most wanted man.

              She couldn't have been more than seven or eight years old. Go ahead, ask your question, her father urged, nudging her forward. She smiled shyly and said, You're my hero. Who's yours? Many people-especially girls-have asked us that same question over the years. It's one of our fav...orite topics. HILLARY: Growing up, I knew hardly any women who worked outside the home. So I looked to my mother, my teachers, and the pages of Life magazine for inspiration. After learning that Amelia Earhart kept a scrapbook with newspaper articles about successful women in male-dominated jobs, I started a scrapbook of my own. Long after I stopped clipping articles, I continued to seek out stories of women who seemed to be redefining what was possible. CHELSEA: This book is the continuation of a conversation the two of us have been having since I was little. For me, too, my mom was a hero; so were my grandmothers. My early teachers were also women. But I grew up in a world very different from theirs. My pediatrician was a woman, and so was the first mayor of Little Rock who I remember from my childhood. Most of my close friends' moms worked outside the home as nurses, doctors, teachers, professors, and in business. And women were going into space and breaking records here on Earth. Ensuring the rights and opportunities of women and girls remains a big piece of the unfinished business of the twenty-first century. While there's a lot of work to do, we know that throughout history and around the globe women have overcome the toughest resistance imaginable to win victories that have made progress possible for all of us. That is the achievement of each of the women in this book. So how did they do it? The answers are as unique as the women themselves. Civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, and swimmer Diana Nyad kept pushing forward, no matter what. Writers like Rachel Carson and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie named something no one had dared talk about before. Historia

              In the bestselling tradition of Marley & Me, the moving story of a dog, his human, and the friendship that saved both of their lives - and inspired countless others. When Ben Moon moved to Oregon, he hadn't planned on getting a dog. But when he met the soulful gaze of a husky-pit... bull cross pup in a rescue shelter, Ben instantly felt a connection, and his friendship with the extraordinary Denali was born. The two friends set out on the road together, on an adventure that would take them across the American west and through some of the best years of their lives. When Ben was diagnosed with colorectal cancer at age 29, Denali never once left his side until the two adventurers were back out surfing and climbing crags. It was only a short time later that Denali was struck by the same disease, and Ben had the chance to return the favor. With the help of a couple of filmmaker friends, Ben made a short film as a tribute to the dog he admits helped form him into an adult. It was a labour of love that struck a chord worldwide, viewed by more than 15 million people, and continues to touch new audiences. Denali is the story of a powerful friendship that shaped Ben and Denali's lives - and inspired countless others - showing the power of the strength and love that we give and receive when we have our friends by our side.

              The Power of Suffering is psychologist David Roland's personal investigation into the nature of human suffering. When our world is turned upside down, what does it do to us, how do we survive it, and, most importantly, how can we grow as a result? David takes the lived experience... of eleven incredible people and follows them along each step of their journey from crisis through to acceptance and triumph. Within each story, David draws on his own experience of life-altering trauma and clinical research to offer insights we all can gain from. Each life story examined is a moving testimony of the human spirit's ability to rise and rise again - an executive tragically loses his family in a car crash and finds healing in the rehabilitation of wildlife, a teenage victim of domestic violence becomes a fierce advocate for abused women and brain-injured youth, a football superstar overcomes bigotry and dyslexia to forge a career in acting, a mother experiences the aching depth of love lost after her teenage child's life is tragically cut short. These are but a few of the intimately told stories, all pointing to a path through the storm and beyond. The Power of Suffering is a revelatory account of how the darkest night can lead to the most profound dawn.
