            One minute a little boy is playing on his grandmother's lawn, the next minute, he's gone - where? The case of little William Tyrrell is one of Australia's most baffling and heartbreaking mysteries. He was playing hide-and-seek with his four-year-old sister in the garden of his gr...andmother's house in Kendall on the NSW mid-north coast at around 10:30 am on September 12, 2014 when he disappeared, seemingly into thin air. It's a tragic story that has gripped Australia's imagination and the photo of the little boy playfully roaring like a tiger, wearing his Spiderman suit, has become an iconic image. Police have cleared his family of any involvement and believe it's likely he was abducted by an opportunistic stranger. His foster parents, birth parents and grandparents are shattered. Who would take this vivacious, funny, innocent three-year-old boy? How can a child simply disappear? This is the awful and unsettling story of a disappearance, a family tragedy, a driven detective, and a long and immensely frustrating police case. It is also the story of Australia's foster care system, exploring how and why a young child like William ends up in the foster care system. From one of Australia's leading journalists, Caroline Overington, Missing William Tyrrell will explore the baffling mystery of a missing child, a mystery that taps into every parent's fears.

            'Undercover was like guerrilla warfare; to understand your enemy, you had to walk amongst them, to become them. The trick was to keep an eye on that important line between who you were and who you were pretending to be.' This is the true story of Keith Banks, one of Queensland's ...most decorated police officers and his journey into the drug scene as an undercover operative in the 1980s. In an era of corruption, often alone, with no backup, he and other undercover cops quickly learned to blend into the drug scene, smoking dope and drinking with targets, buying drugs and having dealers arrested. Very quickly, the lines were blurred between his identity as a police officer and the life he pretended to be part of. This is a raw and confronting story of undercover cops who all became casualties of that era, some worse than others and where not everyone with a badge could be trusted.

            In early 2017, Good Weekend magazine published Stephanie?s article The Great Pretender about her experience with a sinister romantic conman. She thought the story was over. But it was only just beginning. Hundreds of readers wrote to her, telling of similar experiences. A dozen o...r more people recognised the man in the story and wanted to tell Stephanie what they knew about him. She formed a connection with 'the other woman? who also wanted to share her story. Fake is a powerful, richly layered investigative memoir, drawing on Stephanie?s personal story, stories of other women who have been in similar, emotionally abusive relationships; and expert voices. Fake is a story for our times but is timeless too, exploring universal themes - the intensely complex and neurotic story of raw human need. The backstory- In her mid 40s, Stephanie had been coming to grips with an unhappy reality familiar to millions of other women around the world- she would not now ever have the children she had hoped for and it was possible she might never find the soulmate that her mother and society?s embedded princess mythology had led her to believe would one day be hers. Then, through an online dating site, she met 'Scott?. An exhilarating romance began. He said he was a former architect who now had a sheep farm. He had a love for the environment and seemed a compassionate, truthful and decent man. He talked about their future together. But as the months wore on, his behaviour became increasingly erratic. Stephanie grappled with depression and anxiety as a result. Cancellation followed cancellation- he?d been poisoned by sheep drench; his dog had been bitten by a snake; his crazy ex-wife had failed to collect his son from the school disco; his business partners were demanding a meeting. There were red flags, but Stephanie was addicted to hope, immersed in dreams of the future she hoped to share with him. One day, Scott failed to turn up for an interstate flight to the wedding he was to atten
