              An award-winning journalist investigates a story largely ignored by mainstream media but is right there, in front of our eyes Investigative journalist Ross Coulthart has been intrigued by UFOs since mysterious glowing lights were reported near New Zealand's Kaikoura mountain rang...es when he was a teenager. The 1978 Kaikoura sighting is just one of thousands described around the world since the 1940s, and yet research into UFOs has traditionally been seen as the realm of crackpots and conspiracy theorists. Then, in 2020, after decades of denial, the US Department of Defence made the astonishing admission that strange aerial and underwater objects frequently reported and videoed by pilots and tracked by sensors are real, unexplained and pose a genuine national security concern. Coulthart felt compelled to investigate, embarking on what has become the most confronting and challenging story of his career. Now the five-time Walkley Award winner presents his findings. Coulthart has spoken to witnesses, researchers, scientists, spies and defence and intelligence officials and insiders. Many are convinced we are not alone, while some have been investigating and utilising what appear to be extraordinary potential new technologies, including radical propulsion systems, leaving Coulthart convinced that the world is on the cusp of extraordinary technological breakthroughs and cultural revelations. Bizarre, sometimes mind blowing and always utterly fascinating, In Plain Sight uncovers a story that has largely escaped the radar of mainstream media coverage. And yet, as Coulthart argues, it's a story that's been there all along. Now it's time to see what's right in front of our eyes.

              'It's a treasure trove. It's previously unknown, candid images of our troops just out of the line. Men with the fear and experiences of battle written on their faces.' General Sir Peter Cosgrove In this beautiful new edition of the bestseller The Lost Diggers, investigative journ...alist Ross Coulthart, winner of the PM's Literary Award for History, brings together stunning images of Western Front diggers and the amazing stories behind them. A trove of portraits taken by photographers Louis and Antoinette Thuillier in the tiny French town of Vignacourt just behind the front lines were discovered a century later by Coulthart. The collection of glass plates has been hailed as one of the most important First World War discoveries ever made. Every face tells an extraordinary story - some battle-weary and haunted; others enjoying a brief break from war. Now after years of meticulous research and with the help of descendants, Coulthart can reveal many of the previously untold stories behind many of the 330-plus diggers portrayed. Fully revised and expanded, this paperback edition includes a wealth of new information including soldiers newly identified with the aid of their families. 'These stunning black and white photographs stand as mute, yet eloquent, witness to the courage of soldiers and the horror of war ...Remarkably informative, beautifully illustrated and thoroughly researched ...' - Ross Fitzgerald, Sydney Morning Herald

              On the eve of the centenary of Gallipoli Ross Coulthart tells the real story of the iconic Australian war correspondent. CEW Bean's wartime reports and photographs mythologised the Australian soldier and helped spawn the notion that the Anzacs achieved something nation-defining o...n the shores of Gallipoli and the battlefields of western Europe. In his quest to get the truth, Bean often faced death beside the Diggers in the trenches of Gallipoli and the Western Front - and saw more combat than many. But did Bean tell Australia the whole story of what he knew? In this fresh new biography Ross Coulthart explores the man behind the legend.

              Dead Man Running: An insider's story on one of the world's most feared motorcycle gangs... The Bandidos (Audio disc / Other, Unabridged edition)

              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.

              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.
