              Birth. Death. Wonder ... One woman's journey to the edge of love and loyalty from the bestselling author of The Lace Weaver London, 1702. When her husband is lost at sea, Mary Burton Gulliver, midwife and herbalist, is forced to rebuild her life without him. But three years later... when Lemuel Gulliver is brought home, fevered and communicating only in riddles, her ordered world is turned upside down. In a climate of suspicion, poverty and violence, Mary is caught in a crossfire of superstition and fear driven by her husband's outlandish claims of the wonders he has seen, and it is up to her to navigate a passage to safety for herself and her daughter, and the vulnerable women in her care. But when a fellow sailor, a dangerous man with nothing to lose, appears to hold sway over her husband, Mary's world descends deeper into chaos, and she must set out on her own journey to discover the truth of Gulliver's travels ... and the landscape of her own heart. Praise for The Lace Weaver : `A beautifully written and utterly compelling story of love and war ... exquisite as the lace the women of the story weave.' Kate Forsyth

              Ruby is gregarious, generous, sunny and funny - which is why all her friends, family and colleagues have turned up to celebrate her 50th birthday. But with four glasses of champers under her belt, Ruby's speech doesn't go exactly to plan. Instead of the witty and warm words guest...s are expecting, Ruby takes her moment in the spotlight to reveal what she really thinks of them all. And, saving the best till last, Ruby lambasts her calculatingly cruel mother for spending her life playing her three daughters against each other. It's a brilliantly funny speech but blisteringly brutal. As the stunned gathering gawk at Ruby, the birthday girl concludes her seeringly honest, bravura monologue with the throwaway comment that she has terminal cancer. She has cashed out her life savings and plans on taking her two sisters cruising until she dies. Only, do they really want to go with her? And, was it her medical results she read?

              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 realizes he might be facing a criminal mind unlike any he's ever encountered. McEvoy investigates--against the warnings of t...he 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. Called 'the Raymond Chandler of this generation' (Associated Press), Michael Connelly once again delivers an unputdownable thriller that reveals a predator operating from the darkest corners of human nature-and one man courageous and determined enough to stand in his way.

              Number One New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs returns with her nineteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, who must use all her tradecraft to discover the identity of a faceless corpse, its connection to a decade-old missing child c...ase, and why the dead man had her phone number. It's sweltering in Charlotte, North Carolina and Temperance Brennan, still recovering from neurosurgery following an aneurysm, is battling nightmares, migraines, and what she thinks might be hallucinations when she receives a series of mysterious text messages, each containing a new picture of a corpse that is missing its face and hands. Immediately, she's anxious to know who the dead man is, and why the images were sent to her. An identified corpse soon turns up, only partly answering her questions. To win answers to the others, including the man's identity, she must go rogue. With help from a number of law enforcement associates including her Montreal beau Andrew Ryan and the always-ready-with-a-smart-quip, ex-homicide investigator Skinny Slidell, and utilizing new cutting-edge forensic methods, Tempe draws closer to the astonishing truth. But the more she uncovers, the darker and more twisted the picture becomes ... Praise for Kathy Reichs: 'Kathy Reichs writes smart-no, make that brilliant-mysteries that are as realistic as non-fiction and as fast-paced as the best thrillers about Jack Reacher or Alex Cross' James Patterson 'Nobody does forensics thrillers like Kathy Reichs. She's the real deal' David Baldacci 'Kathy Reichs continues to be one of the most distinctive and talented writers in the genre. Her legions of readers worldwide will agree with me when I declare that the more books she writes, the more enthusiastic fans she'll garner' Sandra Brown 'Each book in Kathy Reichs's fantastic Temperance Brennan series is better than the last. They're filled with riveting twists andturns. No matter how many novels she writes, I just can't get

              In this joyful novel, our narrator is Charles Dickens's tenth child, Edward Bulwer Lytton Dickens, known as Plorn. Sent, as his brother Alfred had been before him, at sixteen years of age, to Australia to learn to 'apply himself', we follow his early Australian adventures in outb...ack NSW learning to become a man from the most diverse and toughest of men. Part of Dickens' motivation was to separate these younger of his children from the Dickens family schism, where Charles had expelled his wife from the family home, keeping her sister Georgie there to run the household and taking up with the actress Ellen Tiernan. Plorn arrived in Melbourne in late 1868 carrying a terrible secret. He has never read a word of his father's work. After a very brief stopover he is sent out to become a gentleman stockman on a 2000 square mile station in remotest, semi-arid parts of NSW. Here he inevitably gets enmeshed in a tribe named the Paakintji and various other folk, colonists, colonial-born, ex-convicts, ex-soldiers, and very few women - though he is struck by each one he does encounter. Plorn did not expect he would encounter the same veneration of his father and familiarity with his work in Australia that was rampant in England. Against this backdrop, and featuring cricket tournaments, horse-racing, bushranging, sheep droving, shifty stock and station agents, frontier wars and first encounters with Australian women we follow Plorn, and sometimes his brother Alfred, through wonderful adventures as he works to apply himself. This is Tom Keneally in his most familiar terrain. Taking historical figures and events and reimagining them with verve, compassion and humour. It is a romp.

              Why would someone bury a bucket of precious jewels and gemstones and never return? From the author of The Jade Lily comes a thrilling modern-day treasure hunt brimming with family secrets. In the summer of 1912, a workman's pickaxe strikes through the basement floor of an old ten...ement house in Cheapside, London, uncovering a cache of unimaginably valuable treasure that quickly disappears again. Present day. When respected jewellery historian, Kate Kirby, receives a call about the Cheapside jewels, she knows she's on the brink of the experience of a lifetime. As Kate peels back the layers of London's stories of plague, fire and political turmoil, she is forced to explore long-buried family secrets. Secrets concerning Essie, her great-grandmother, and her life in Edwardian London. Soon, Kate's past and present threaten to collide and the truths about her family lie waiting to be revealed. Inspired by a true story, The Lost Jewels unfolds an incredible story of mystery, thievery, sacrifice and hope through the generations of one family. Praise for The Jade Lily: 'Kirsty Manning has woven, blended, sewn the threads of history, family secrets, the past and the present into a page-turning, beautiful novel. Her talent for researching and writing a seamless dual-narrative story with characters reflecting tragedy and trauma lived, and survived, will enthral and educate. Her approach and style to the multiple cultures and countries reinforces that humanity will rise above evil. The Jade Lily is a story rich in the elements of plot, characters, and unselfish love leading to hope: the last thing to die.' - Heather Morris, author of the bestselling The Tattooist of Auschwitz

              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
