            Once a petty criminal, now a highly respected QC, Elliot Rook has years of legal experience - and he will need every one of them if he is to see his latest client acquitted. A batch of tainted drugs has killed thirteen inmates at a London prison and a vulnerable young officer, Ch...arli Meadows, has been charged with smuggling them into the prison. Charli insists she is innocent but as Rook begins to investigate the charges that first saw the prisoners incarcerated, a threatening note arrives at Rook's flat, warning him off the case. As Rook battles to save Charli and protect himself, his young protege, Zara, is under pressure. Only one tenancy at the legal chambers will be available to the ever-multiplying mass of pupils, and determined that it will be hers, Zara has taken on her biggest solo case yet. But will her gamble pay off?

            The gripping true story of the notorious Claremont serial murders and the nation's longest and most expensive investigation to catch the killer In the space of just over year in 1996-7, three young women disappeared from Claremont, an upmarket suburb in central Perth. When two of... the young women were found murdered, Australia's longest and most expensive investigation was established. More than twenty years later, an unlikely suspect was arrested based on forensic evidence that also linked the murders to two previous vicious rapes. The Claremont Killings, by local newsman Bret Christian, is a riveting story of young lives cut short, a city in panic, an investigation riddled with error and incompetence, and a surprising twist that absolutely no one saw coming.

            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. In his page-turning book, investigative journalist Duncan McNab explores the causes of the spectacular quarantine failure, the cruise industry, the lives of the victims and their families, and the turbulent politics of blame.

            Barbed wire across fields, padlocked gates, 'trespassers will be prosecuted' signs: Britain is a land of fences. Who owns these fences, and what does it mean if we cross them? In The Book of Trespass, Nick Hayes takes us on a journey of trespass across Britain. He jumps over wall...s at baronial estates, wanders into fenced off ancient woodland, trespasses onto the Queen's land at Windsor and pushes through barbed wire to access MoD property. He examines the social history of property, from the Norman Conquest to the enclosure acts and the privatisation of land. Along the way he asks crucial questions: what has the mass fencing off of private land done to Britain and its inhabitants? Why is the transgression of boundaries thought so severe here, when roaming is a legal right in so many countries? And who even drew these lines in the first place? A fusion of psychogeography, history, politics and philosophy, fuelled by a gently anarchic spirit, The Book of Trespass is a powerful rumination on how fences represent the division in our society, but also cause it.

            Our justice system, once the envy of the world, is in a state of cardiac arrest. Crime has risen to record levels; serious violence, including knife crime, drug-related behaviour and gang activity are out of control. Social media and the internet are fuelling criminal activity by... providing places for criminals to operate and influence young people. In this book one of the UK's leading criminal defence barristers, Chris Daw QC, provides an insider's view of the justice system - complete with fascinating real-life accounts - and proposes radical solutions to some of the biggest challenges it now faces. After a brief introduction and outline of the history of justice in the UK and abroad, Chris presents his manifesto for the twenty-first century: he examines the use of prisons, both in the UK and the US on Alabama's 'Death Row'; he argues passionately for the legalization of drugs to destroy the criminal networks who traffic in their supply; he speaks to young people who are the perpetrators and victims of crime, delving into youth crime and the treatment of young offenders, and he examines the role of the internet as the new frontier of organised criminal activity. Finally, he asks us to move beyond the binary of 'good and evil', to adopt a more pragmatic and humane approach to justice - one that could allow Britain to have the lowest crime rate on Earth.
