              'The Dead Path' tells the gripping story of a broken man, Nicholas Close. A terrible accident has left him a widower and awoken in him the ability to see the dead. Now, he can't escape visions of tortured spirits, their last moments caught in horrible, endlessly replaying loops. ...Nicholas leaves London and returns to Australia where he is disturbed to see that a heavily treed tract of land in his childhood suburb has somehow escaped development. These woods have haunted Nicholas since he was a boy and now he knows why: he sees the ghosts of terrified children being dragged from the path into the grinning maw of dark trees. When another local child goes missing, Nicholas himself becomes a suspect ...yet he alone knows the girl has been taken into the woods. If he does not act against whatever resides among the shadowy trees, more innocents will be murdered. But the force he resolves to confront is old, cunning, and evil ...and wants Nicholas for itself.

              In the inspiring tradition of Black Hawk Down, this is the riveting real-life story of how an Australian SAS signalman's courage under fire saved more than 80 lives. An enthralling eyewitness account of the war on terror. Jock Wallace was pumped. It was the start of Operation Ana...conda, the US-led military offensive to flush out al Qaeda and Taliban from their last stronghold in the Shahi Kot Valley in Afghanistan. If intelligence reports were correct, there were between 100 and 250 enemy fighters holed up in the extensive cave systems in the mountain ridges around the beautiful valley. But reports can be wrong. Minutes after the combat-ready troops stormed down the back ramps of the Chinook helicopters, Jock's company was under fire. Eighteen hours of hell was just beginning. With machine-gun bullets dancing about the soldiers' feet, and mortars and rocket-propelled grenades raining down on them, it seemed the al Qaeda terorrists and Taliban fighters had them trapped. But there was no way Jock was going down without a fight. Nor were the men he was with. Holding off the enemy, rescuing the injured, reporting to base, calling in air support - Jock gave it all that he had.He was not going to die on foreign soil, not at the hands of al Qaeda.

              The world's most successful criminal empire is now being operated on a massive scale by outlaw motorcycle gangs - an empire that is growing in power, reach and ruthlessness by the day. Their international empire is both sophisticated and brutal. It is also both strategic and oppo...rtunistic - where they cannot dominate, they broker alliances. Above the Law investigates how it all started: the turf wars that were fought, the deals that were done, and how the sea of cash that was earned is now being legitimised. It also reveals how law enforcement at an international level is losing the battle against the gangs. Using exclusive insider sources on four continents, this is the first contemporary account of one of the biggest criminal stories of our time. Read it and be afraid.

              His novels and short stories have been widely translated, won many national and international prizes and been adapted for film, television, radio and theatre. Winner of the 2000 WA Premier's non-fiction book award. The Shark Net, a vibrant and haunting memoir that reaches beyond ...the dark recesses of murder and chaos to encompass their ordinary suburban backdrop. In Robert Drewes hands, a whole time and region come to vivid life. Extraordinarily moving, surprisingly humorous and beautifully observed, The Shark Net shows one of Australias most acclaimed writers charting new and exciting territory. In this magnificent and haunting memoir of murder, sharks and rubber goods, Robert Drewe proves himself too subtle and too adventurous a writer to settle for the truth, plain and simple. He creates instead a resurrection of his boyhood in Australia which is as ornamented, engaging and ambitious as any great novel. Jim Crace.

              We are the people our parents warned us about' is the motto of the Bandidos, one of the world's most feared outlaw motorcycle gangs. For ten years, Steve Utah was a Bandidos insider. He arranged the security of their clubhouses. He 'cooked' ecstasy and ice for them. He was at mee...tings where interstate and overseas drug and weapons smuggling was planned. He saw stolen military weapons being sold. He witnessed vicious beatings, helped dump corpses. He saw men executed in front of him. It all became too much and, in an attempt to regain control of his life, Utah resorted to the unthinkable: he rolled over to the Federal Police and told them all he knew about the Bandidos. This shocking, unflinching, tragic story is Steve Utah's confession. He knows he is a dead man running - that inevitably the Bandido code will be honoured and he will be silenced. But not before Utah gets his chance to wake Australians to the looming threat in their midst - the relentless rise of sophisticated organised crime networks inside outlaw motorcycle gangs and the apparent inability of the Police and legal system to deal with it.

              Major ABC television series. Popular school text. Winner of the 2000 WA Premier's non-fiction book award. Aged six, Robert Drewe moved with his family from Melbourne to Perth, the world's most isolated city - and proud of it. This sun-baked coast was innocently proud, too, of its... tranquillity and friendliness. Then a man he knew murdered a boy he also knew. The murderer randomly killed eight strangers - variously shooting, strangling, stabbing, bludgeoning and hacking his victims and running them down with cars - and an innocent Perth was changed forever. In the middle-class suburbs which were the killer's main stalking grounds, the mysterious murders created widespread anxiety and instant local myth. 'The murders and their aftermath have both intrigued me and weighed heavily on me for three decades. To try to make sense of this time and place, and of my own childhood and adolescence, I had, finally, to write about it.' The result is The Shark Net, a vibrant and haunting memoir that reaches beyond the dark recesses of murder and chaos to encompass their ordinary suburban backdrop. In Robert Drewe's hands, a whole time and region come to vivid life. Extraordinarily moving, surprisingly humorous and beautifully observed, The Shark Net shows one of Australia's most acclaimed writers charting new and exciting territory. In this magnificent and haunting memoir of murder, sharks and rubber goods, Robert Drewe proves himself too subtle and too adventurous a writer to settle for 'the truth, plain and simple'. He creates instead a resurrection of his boyhood in Australia which is as ornamented, engaging and ambitious as any great novel. - Jim Crace

              At the close of a long day, Inspector Stephen Villani stands in the bathroom of a luxury apartment high above the city. In the glass bath, a young woman lies dead, a panic button within reach. So begins the sequel to Peter Temple's bestselling masterpiece, The Broken Shore, winne...r of the Gold Dagger for Best Crime Award. Villani's life is his work. It is his identity, his calling, his touchstone. But now, over a few sweltering summer days, as fires burn across the state and his superiors and colleagues scheme and jostle, he finds all the certainties of his life are crumbling. Truth is a novel about a man, a family, a city. It is about violence, murder, love, corruption, honour and deceit. And it is about truth.
