              RAAF Black Cats chronicles a little-known, yet crucial and courageous chapter in Australia's war history. While this story involved Australia and the United States, very few people on either side of the Pacific know of the significance the RAAF Catalina Squadrons had on the outco...me of the war against Japan, and General Douglas MacArthur's triumphant 'return' to the Philippines. Between 22 April 1943 and 1 July 1945, the crews of the RAAF's PBY Flying Boat (Catalina) squadrons in coalition with the US 7th Fleet conducted top-secret covert mine-laying missions in the South Pacific to disrupt Japanese naval supply and military operations. General Douglas MacArthur, particularly, believed mine-laying would be an effective weapon to stop the Japanese from supplying their forces, feeding their war-machine and, therefore, softening the enemy for US Army and Marine landings. He was proved right. This is the powerful story of the brave Australian crews who flew some of the most dangerous missions of the Pacific War.

              Somewhere out in the wild seas of the southern Indian Ocean, in the underwater canyons of Broken Ridge near the alien sub-terrain known as the Seventh Arc lies the answer to the world's greatest aviation mystery. Why, on the night of 8 March 2014, did Malaysia Flight MH370 sudden...ly U-turn on the trip from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, zig-zag over Malaysia and up the Straits of Malacca, then disappear in the middle of nowhere without a word from anyone on board? Was it an elaborate murder-suicide by a rogue pilot? A terrible accident as a result of an on-board fire, rapid decompression or systems failure? A terrorist hijacking gone wrong? Was the flight captured by North Korean spies? Or even, as a few extremists believe, the victim of extra-terrestrial intervention? Journalist for The Australian Ean Higgins has led the world's coverage of the MH370 saga, one of the 21st century's most baffling, enduring and controversial mysteries. Ean's book draws on five years of interviews with aviation experts, victim families, air-crash investigators and air and ocean hunters, and takes us inside the saga like never before, written up close, on the inside, and from the major player's perspectives.

              'It was the genius of the system ...From day to day you didn't know who was on the take or not. You didn't know who you could trust.' Three Crooked Kings is the shocking true story of Queensland and how a society was shaped by almost half a century of corruption. At its core is T...erence Murray Lewis, deposed and jailed former police commissioner. From his entry into the force in 1949, Lewis rose through the ranks, becoming part of the so-called Rat Pack with detectives Glendon Patrick Hallahan and Tony Murphy under the guiding influence of Commissioner Frank Bischof. The next four decades make for a searing tale of cops and killings, bagmen and blackmail, and sin and sleaze that exposes a police underworld which operated from Queensland and into New South Wales. This gripping story exposes the final pieces of the puzzle, unearths new evidence on cold cases, and explores the pivotal role that whistleblower Shirley Brifman, prostitute and brothel owner, played until her sudden death. Based on extensive and unprecedented access to Terry Lewis and his personal papers, as well as 100s of interviews with key players and conspirators, awarded journalist and novelist Matthew Condon has crafted the definitive account of an era that changed a state and is still reverberating to this day.

              In the early hours of Thursday 19 March 2020, the luxury cruise liner Ruby Princess docked at Sydney's Circular Quay, the gateway to Australia. Hours later, 2700 passengers disembarked. Yet in the middle of a pandemic sweeping the planet, there were no health checks. Over the nex...t few days, the passengers got some bad news. The COVID-19 virus had infected some on the ship and it spread rapidly. Eventually over 900 passengers and crew would be diagnosed and 28 would die from the disease. Months of investigation and a Special Commission uncovered a series of catastrophic mistakes, from negligence to corporate greed of an industry with a history of only caring for its bottom line. This 'super-spreader incident' was a viral bomb that exploded in the heart of Australia's biggest city - and a disaster that could and should have been prevented.

              At first it looked like a swag, said the grader driver who found the body just off the road outside the outback town of Katherine. Police identify the dead man as Ray Nicefero, who'd recently appeared in court for aggravated assault and breaching a domestic violence order. Three ...days later, the constabulary rounds up three young local suspects: Christopher Malyschko, 24, Darren 'Spider' Halfpenny, 22, and 19-year-old Zak Grieve, who happens to be Indigenous. A month later, Bronwyn Buttery, Ray's former partner and Christopher's mother, is arrested. Eventually Darren Halfpenny agrees to testify against his co-accused. But when the accused face court in the rough justice system of the Northern Territory, it soon becomes apparent there are few certain, provable facts to be had. Depending on who's talking, a loving friend can become an abusive monster, a battered wife a conniving temptress. And a joke between mates about the best way to dispose of a body becomes a conspiracy to murder. The outcome of the case is no less murky, thanks to the NT's mandatory sentencing laws, which, the judge says himself, 'brings about injustice'. What is indisputable is that the only man that the judge believed to have not been at the scene of the crime receives the longest sentence. Mandatory Murder is the compelling true story of a murder in an outback town in 21st century Australia and the extraordinary aftermath. Author Steven Schubert was living in Katherine when the murder took place, and his account is rich with the kind of detail only an eye-witness can provide. The book raises important questions, including how a man who didn't attend a murder can go to jail for 20 years.
