            When ski patroller, Vanessa Bell, discovers human bones high on Mount Stilwell at Charlotte Pass ski resort, Detective Sergeant Pierce Ryder of Sydney Homicide Squad is called to lead the investigative team. Arriving in the isolated, snowed-in village with Winterfest Celebrations... underway, Ryder soon determines that the bones are those of Celia Delaney, a young woman who disappeared from the ski resort in 1964, during the biggest winter storm in Australian alpine history. When a second murder takes place, Ryder suspects that the deaths are related, and the person responsible is still in the village. Amid the escalating tension, Ryder is desperate to make an arrest before the stakes rise even higher. Set within the stunning Snowy Mountains, this intriguing mystery uncovers deadly, long-buried secrets in the valleys and mountains of this iconic area.

            The wisest, funniest, and most inspiring book on friendship and ageing written by a dog you'll ever read. 'The best thing you can aspire to in this world, is company. Whether it's for pleasure or pain, a crowning or an execution: everything is better with company. You might say i...t all went to hell with Mrs. Thorkildsen, but you know what? It could have been worse, because Mrs. Thorkildsen had me to keep her company. And I had her. That's what we had in common, her and me, what bound us together. We were company.' Look at this! Mrs Thorkildsen says, holding the book open to a certain page, and I again feel the quick jolt of fear that sooner or later she will lose track of daily existence, when I once again have to remind her that: Dogs can't read. At a nursing home, The Major, a World War II veteran, breathes his last. Watching over him are his wife and his faithful companion, Tassen, the story's narrator, who is, by his own admission, a couch potato and a one-man dog. After the Major is gone, Tassen and Mrs Thorkildsen settle into their new life surrounded by books and stories of the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen's race with Britain's Captain Robert F Scott to reach the South Pole in 1911. Regular visits to the local library and the bar next door provide all types of enlightenment. And Tassen and Mrs Thorkildsen provide company for each other. However when Mrs Thorkildsen becomes ill, Tassen's secure world begins to wobble. Beguiling, poignant, funny and thoughtful, this utterly entertaining novel is destined to become a favourite.

            'Fauna lays bare an electrifying genetically re-coded future so real, so terrifying, so close, I can feel its baby breath soft against my cheek.' Robyn Mundy, author of Wild Light 'Mazza's novel asks hard questions, yet brims with compassion. A thrilling, unsettling read.' Paddy ...O'Reilly, author of The Wonders Set 17 years into a very recognisable future, Fauna is an astonishing psychological drama with an incredible twist: What if the child you are carrying is not entirely human? Using DNA technology, scientists have started to reverse the extinction of creatures like the mammoth and the Tasmanian Tiger. The benefits of this radical approach could be far-reaching. But how far will they go? Longing for another child, Stacey is recruited by a company who offer massive incentives for her to join an experimental programme called LifeBLOOD. As part of the agreement, she and her husband's embryo will be blended with 'edited cells'. Just how edited, Stacey doesn't really know. Nor does she have any idea how much her longed-for new daughter will change her life and that of her family. Or how hard she will have to fight to protect her. Fauna is a transformative, lyrical and moving novel about love and motherhood, home and family - and what it means to be human.

            A young man can't make love. A pedantic father spots a blemish in his new shorts and returns to the shop to demand their exchange. A girl rocks up to a Tinder date wearing a helmet. In nineteen short stories, No Neat Endings pits its characters against the challenges of modern li...fe, sex, love, work and the world. A man observes his brother's rise to comic stardom with envy and angst. A father faces his fortieth with mortal paranoia. A friend returns from Brazil to become embroiled in a drug-fuelled romp in a share house. It doesn't work out. For so many of the characters in these stories, it doesn't end well. They succumb to their own vices, impulses, insecurities. They have, more often than not, only themselves to blame. Half tragedy, half comedy, this collection announces a fresh new voice in Australian writing.

            When Eliza Carmody returns to her hometown after a destructive wildfire, she witnesses a crime that draws her back into the mysteries of a childhood she thought she'd left behind for good. When the biggest legal case of her career brings Eliza Carmody back to Kinsale, the hometow...n she thought she had left forever, she witnesses an old friend commit a crime that sends her on a dangerous quest to uncover the mysteries of her childhood that the rest of the town seems willing to ignore. With her friend on the run and the police investigating the bones on an unidentified dead body at a historic homestead near town, Eliza becomes convinced that the truth lies in her memories of the New Year's Eve years ago when her friend Grace disappeared from Kinsale forever. With the town still reeling from the devastating fire and powerful local families determined to protect young men from the consequences of their actions, Eliza begins to suspect that no one - even those she needs to trust the most - is telling the truth. Praise for Second Sight 'This brilliantly crafted crime novel takes a plunge into driving thriller territory. A writer to watch.' Starred review, US Publishers Weekly 'Fans of Jane Harper's mysteries will feel right at home.' Booklist 'The tension is high, the pace rapid and the plot primed to keep the pages turning.' The Australian 'Incisive prose that establishes Clifford as something of a stylist. Trouble and teenagers are at the heart of this fine crime novel that introduces us to Melbourne lawyer Eliza Carmody ... Nice work.' Sydney Morning Herald 'You won't put this book down until the final page is done.' Adelaide Advertiser 'I read Second Sight like I was on fire. I couldn't get enough of Eliza Carmody.' Sarah Bailey, bestselling author of The Dark Lake 'A compelling story about secrets, small town loyalties, and lies.' Emma Viskic, author of Resurrection Bay
