              Private Detective Cormoran Strike is visiting his family in Cornwall when he is approached by a woman asking for help finding her mother, Margot Bamborough - who went missing in mysterious circumstances in 1974. Strike has never tackled a cold case before, let alone one forty yea...rs old. But despite the slim chance of success, he is intrigued and takes it on; adding to the long list of cases that he and his partner in the agency, Robin Ellacott, are currently working on. And Robin herself is also juggling a messy divorce and unwanted male attention, as well as battling her own feelings about Strike. As Strike and Robin investigate Margot's disappearance, they come up against a fiendishly complex case with leads that include tarot cards, a psychopathic serial killer and witnesses who cannot all be trusted. And they learn that even cases decades old can prove to be deadly . . . A breathtaking, labyrinthine epic, Troubled Blood is the fifth Strike and Robin novel and the most gripping and satisfying yet.

              Cornwall, 1972. Three keepers vanish from a remote lighthouse, miles from the shore. The entrance door is locked from the inside. The clocks have stopped. The Principal Keeper's weather log describes a mighty storm, but the skies have been clear all week. What happened to those t...hree men, out on the tower? The heavy sea whispers their names. The tide shifts beneath the swell, drowning ghosts. Can their secrets ever be recovered from the waves? Twenty years later, the women they left behind are still struggling to move on. Helen, Jenny and Michelle should have been united by the tragedy, but instead it drove them apart. And then a writer approaches them. He wants to give them a chance to tell their side of the story. But only in confronting their darkest fears can the truth begin to surface . . . Inspired by real events, The Lamplighters is an intoxicating and suspenseful mystery, an unforgettable story of love and grief that explores the way our fears blur the line between the real and the imagined.

              A headstrong, heroic young woman smuggles Jewish children to safety in this powerful love story by the bestselling author of The Things We Cannot Say World War Two: Emilia lives with her adoptive parents in the Aryan side of Warsaw, adjacent to the Jewish Ghetto. Nazis have long ...since closed the schools, allowing Emilia to form an unlikely but close friendship with her neighbour, Lena, a widowed social worker and public health nurse, who is hiding a dangerous secret. The Nazis allow a limited number of disposable ethnic Poles to monitor the spread of typhus in the imprisoned Jewish population, to ensure it can't infect troops. But under the cover of the program, Lena and her team have another mission: smuggling Jewish children to safety. Emilia finds herself presented with an opportunity she's been longing for: a way to rebel, to save lives, and to try to make up for all that's been lost. Through it all, she befriends Sergiusz who is mapping out plans to dig massive bunkers beneath the ghetto. As the Warsaw Uprising begins, Emilia and Sergiusz are separated and reunited time and again. Will they ultimately find their way back to each other across years, and miles, and heartaches? Australia's Kelly Rimmer, the New York Times bestselling author of The Things We Cannot Say and Truths I Never Told You, writes about moral choices and searing emotional experiences in this unputdownable novel about the way we decide to live our lives.

              Welcome to the neighbourhood. We do things differently here. Nora Spangler is a successful lawyer but when it comes to domestic life, she's always the one doing more. She packs her daughter's lunches, schedules the doctor appointments, knows where the extra paper towel rolls are,... and buys the birthday cards. Her husband, Hayden, works hard, too...but why is she always working so much harder? The Spanglers go house-hunting in Dynasty Ranch, a nice suburban neighborhood where Nora meets a group of career women with enviably supportive husbands. When she agrees to help with a resident's gruesome wrongful death case after a big fire in the estate, she delves into the lives of the women there, becoming their friend. But how have Penny, Thea, Cornelia and Alexis managed to transform their marriages? Even as she fears digging up the secrets at the heart of her own marriage, Nora is tantalized by the possibility of a life that's under control. But what is really going on at Dynasty Ranch? As the case unravels, Nora uncovers a plot that may explain the secret to having it all. Smart, sharp, and timely, The Husbands imagines a world where the burden of the 'second shift' is equally shared - and what it might take to get there. If you love the novels of Liane Moriarty, Celeste Ng and Sally Hepworth you will devour The Husbands.

              It is 1953 and Melbourne society is looking forward to coronation season, the grand balls and celebrations for the young queen-to-be. Tilly Dunnage is, however, working for a pittance in a second-rate Collins Street salon. Her talents go unappreciated, and the madame is a bully a...nd a cheat, but Tilly has a past she is desperate to escape and good reason to prefer anonymity. Meanwhile, Sergeant Farrat and the McSwiney clan have been searching for their resident dressmaker ever since she left Dungatar in flames. And they aren't the only ones. The inhabitants of the town are still out for revenge (or at least someone to foot the bill for the new high street). So when Tilly's name starts to feature in the fashion pages, the jig is up. Along with Tilly's hopes of keeping her secrets hidden ...
