              "We think you're the type of joker who would suit working undercover. No controls, out there doing deals and drinking piss." And with that the young beat cop shed what was left of his uniform and slid into the underworld of strippers, junkies, crooks and gangsters. Codename: Emu.... Mission: to take out hardened criminals. What could possibly go wrong? This is the true story of a Kiwi cop who survives the dangerous double life of an undercover agent and goes on to become New Zealand's most successful international fraud investigator. Along the way he is a key figure in a murder, weathers multiple contract hits, finds true love, gains a law degree, tangles with the Russian mafia, and continues to nail the bad guys, the con artists, the career criminals, wherever he finds them. And he still keeps a shottie under the bed.

              From before Christchurch was settled its cathedral has been the focus of ferocious public debate: Where should a cathedral be built? How would it be paid for? Should it be built in wood or stone? When financially perilous, should it be supported by the city? Should it be demolish...ed or should it be restored? And to whom did it really belong?

              Who Am I? is a question at the centre of what it is to be human and for artist Kelcy Taratoa (Ngai Te Rangi, Ngati Ranginui, Ngati Raukawa) it has formed the sub-ject of his painting for two decades. Kelcy Taratoa: Who Am I ?... Episode 001 is a bilingual English and Te Reo publi...cation written by Warren Feeney and translated by Heni Jacob (Ngati Raukawa). It traverses the artist's life from growing up in the suburbs of Levin to Te Haka a Te Tupere, the artist's wharenui at Rangiwaea marae in Tauranga Harbour. Through his paintings he contends that contemporary technology's virtual realities and appetite for destruction and distraction is undermining our humanity and experience of the world. Yet painting, that most ancient means of visual communication, is something that continues to remind us of our humanness.

              The Pink Jumpsuit: Short fictions, tall truths (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In Emma Neale's first collection of short fiction, the tales range from the surreal to the real; from the true to the tall. This collection includes some of her internationally recognised flash fiction and more extended examinations of the eerie gaps and odd swerves in intimate r...elationships. There are confidence tricksters, compulsive liars, emotional turn-coats, the pulse of jumbled childhood memory still felt in adult life, the weird metamorphosis of fantasy hardening into reality. A woman meets up with an ex-lover after twenty years, to be told an outrageous secret; a mother takes her ailing son to a doctor for an undocumented condition; a bride is left at the altar; a brother and sister reel from a family tragedy decades after the event; a children's birthday party turns all Queen of the Flies; a hidden family legacy appears in a grand-daughter's strange affliction. From everyday realism to the speculative and imaginary, recurring motifs in these stories (the scientist father; the mystery of identity even within families; what we can't know about even those closest to us) toy with the boundaries between memory and the unknown: the blending of the real and the invented.
