              A fast-paced, witty and gripping historical crime series from Tom Keneally and his eldest daughter Meg. In the Port Macquarie penal settlement for second offenders gentleman convict Hugh Monsarrat hungers for freedom. Originally transported for forging documents passing himself o...ff as a lawyer, he is now the trusted clerk of the settlement's commandant. His position has certain advantages, such as being able to spend time in the Government House kitchen, being supplied with outstanding cups of tea by housekeeper Hannah Mulrooney, who, despite being illiterate, is his most intelligent companion. Not long after the commandant heads off in search of a rumoured river, his beautiful wife, Honora, falls ill with a sickness the doctor is unable to identify. When Honora dies, it becomes clear she has been slowly poisoned. Monsarrat and Mrs Mulrooney suspect the commandant's second-in-command, Captain Diamond, a cruel man who shares history with Honora. Then Diamond has Mrs Mulrooney arrested for the murder. Knowing his friend will hang if she is tried, Monsarrat knows he must find the real killer. And so begins The Monsarrat Series, a fast-paced, witty and gripping series from Tom Keneally and his eldest daughter, Meg.

              Words, reflections, poems and photographs of Australian animals affected and pushed to the edge of extinction by the 2019/20 bushfire season. Through these stories and pictures, Australian artists have responded to the prompt Animals Make Us Human and given us exquisite moments o...f beauty watching a wild platypus at play, moments of being dumbstruck by the inexplicable leap of a threshing shark, a gentle cup of tea with birds in our backyard, powerful warnings that the world must change, contemplation of the generations of extinction that have gone before through watching an echidna dawdle across a path and images of such beauty, there are no words. Uplifting and life-affirming, this collection is a also a powerful reminder and rebuke that we are but animals and have one world in which to co-exist, survive and thrive. The words of Australia's favourite writers are accompanied by poignant images taken by renowned conservation and wildlife photographers, highlighting the beauty and fragility of our unique fauna. A response to the recent devastating bushfires, Animals Make Us Human calls readers to reflect upon and celebrate their own relationship with Australia's wildlife. All contributors have donated their work with proceeds going to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy and the Australian Marine Conservation Society.

              When a boatman is murdered on a remote island off Van Dieman?s Land, the authorities want to blame a famous, and very inconvenient, political prisoner. But the victim?s history of blackmail prompts Monsarrat to look further afield - and not everyone is happy . . . In this, the th...ird in the Monsarrat series, Hugh Llewelyn Monsarrat and his trusty housekeeper, Mrs Mulrooney, are sent to remote Maria Island to solve the murder of Bart Harefield, the detested cutter skipper responsible for bringing supplies and correspondence to the island. Bart knows that knowledge is currency and he?s not shy about reading the letters he brings across ...When Harefield is murdered with an axe, blame is laid at the feet of Thomas Power, the charismatic Irish revolutionary held in detention - with a lot of privileges - on Maria Island. Monsarrat and Mrs Mulrooney are told to solve the murder. They soon realise their real job is to tie Power neatly to the crime, so he can be hanged without inciting rebellion. But were there others who also had reason to want to shut Harefield up?

              Henry Hallward is the editor of the Sydney Chronicle, a progressive newspaper which is a thorn in the side of the colonial administration. He has repeatedly agitated for greater rights for convicts and former convicts, angering local landowners and the new governor in the process.... He has also been highly critical of several prominent citizens, and recently published a story accusing Socrates McAllister of rum-running. Hallward has been imprisoned several times for criminal libel, and always continues to edit his newspaper while incarcerated. This time, he's in jail awaiting trial for suggesting that there have been some criminal financial dealings involving the CEO of the Australian Agricultural Company, a consortium of British landowners, some resident in the colony, some not, to whom the British government was giving a million acres of Australian land to develop. He has told friends that he has damaging information on someone close to the new Governor, which will shortly be revealed. First, though, he has to face court. As he is being taken from Sydney jail to the courthouse, a shot is heard from a nearby building, and Holt falls dead to the ground. One of his guards looks up and notices a window closing. Monsarrat and Mrs Mulrooney are sent to Sydney, officially to assist in the investigation, unofficially to discover what they can about the story Holt was working on when he was killed. Their handler in Sydney is to be Major Duchamp, an aide Governor Darling inherited from his predecessor. Monsarrat and Mrs Mulrooney are both unhappy to be leaving Parramatta - Mrs Mulrooney frets she will miss a letter from her son, who has gone silent after regular correspondence. Monsarrat, meanwhile, is trying to find out where Grace O'Leary has been sent. With her new wealth, Mrs Mulrooney has bought a building she intends to transform into a public house for her son to run, should he materialise. She has also offered Helen a permanent position when her ticket of leave comes,

              For Robert Church, superintendent of the Parramatta Female Factory, the most enjoyable part of his job is access to young convict women. Inmate Grace O'Leary has made it her mission to protect the women from his nocturnal visits and when Church is murdered with an awl thrust thro...ugh his right eye, she becomes the chief suspect. Recently arrived from Port Macquarie, ticket-of-leave gentleman convict Hugh Monsarrat now lives in Parramatta with his ever-loyal housekeeper Mrs Mulrooney. Monsarrat, as an unofficial advisor on criminal and legal matters to the governor's secretary, is charged with uncovering the truth of Church's murder. Mrs Mulrooney accompanies him to the Female Factory, where he is taking depositions from prisoners, including Grace, and there the housekeeper strikes up friendships with certain women, which prove most intriguing. Monsarrat and Mrs Mulrooney both believe that Grace is innocent, but in this they are alone, so to exonerate her they must find the murderer. Many hated Church and are relieved by his death, but who would go as far as killing him?

              Robert Church, Superintendent of the Parramatta Female Factory, takes full advantage of his position. First, there are the opportunities to siphon off supplies and sell them. And the Factory also provides an excellent front for Robert's sly grog business. But to Robert's mind, th...e most enjoyable part of the job is access to the young convict women under his care. There are irritants and Grace O'Leary is chief among them. She has made it her mission to protect the younger women from Robert's nocturnal visits. She even went as far as to organise a riot sparked by his treatment of the women. Robert will deal with Grace in due course. But for now, fresh from visiting one of the Factory's new arrivals, he feels rather pleased with himself. Until he hears footsteps following him across the courtyard. Turning, he just has time to recognise his assailant before the tip of an awl is rammed upwards into his brain via his right eyeball ...Recently arrived from Port Macquarie, ticket-of-leave gentleman convict Hugh Llewelyn Monsarrat now lives in a small but comfortable house in Parramatta and is now attached to the Attorney General's office, officially as a clerk, but also as an unofficial advisor on criminal and legal matters. He is visited by the Attorney General's Secretary, Rupert Symes, who tells him the superintendent of the Female Factory has been murdered. A convict woman, Grace O'Leary had a particular grudge against him and is being held. Monsarrat is asked to take a statement from her, but Grace doesn't strike Monsarrat as a murderer ...
