              On the scorching February day in 2009 that became known as Black Saturday, a man lit two fires in Victoria's Latrobe Valley, then sat on the roof of his house to watch the inferno. In the Valley, where the rates of crime were the highest in the state, more than thirty people were... known to police as firebugs. But the detectives soon found themselves on the trail of a man they didn't know. The Arsonist takes readers on the hunt for this man, and inside the strange puzzle of his mind. It is also the story of fire in this country, and of a community that owed its existence to that very element. The command of fire has defined and sustained us as a species - understanding its abuse will define our future. A powerful real-life thriller written with Hooper's trademark lyric detail and nuance, The Arsonist is a reminder that in an age of fire, all of us are gatekeepers.

              A compelling new novel about how far two physicians will go to protect the right to treat their patients from acclaimed author Kimmery Martin. Georgia Brown's profession as a urologist requires her to interact with plenty of naked people, but her romantic life has fizzled. The mo...st important person in her life is her friend, Jonah Tsukada, a funny, empathetic family medicine doctor who works at the same hospital in Charleston, South Carolina, and who has become as close as family to her. Just after Georgia leaves the country for a medical conference, Jonah receives startling news: the hospital intends to fire doctors who refuse to stop providing medical care for transgender patients. Disturbed by the hospital's actions, the two of them concoct a plan to persuade the board to reverse its decision. But when the strategy spirals out of control, both Georgia and Jonah find themselves facing the loss of much more than their careers in a last-ditch effort to battle injustice.
