            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

            It all started with a ruthless murder. An ex-boxer and petty police informer was efficiently disposed of, sending a ghastly warning to others. That would have been the end of it, had not a shark, in a million to one chance, vomited up the victim's arm in an aquarium and shone an ...unwelcome light into some very dark places. With so much at stake, the guilty closed ranks and gradually, with intimidation and money, and the murder of a mate who they feared would betray them, they re-imposed their control and the light was turned off again. The memory of those events, and the terrible fear they inspired, kept those who knew the truth silent unto the grave. Although many people have written about the shark arm murder, Phillip Roope and Kevin Meagher are the first to have access to the original police records. Through careful investigation, they have unravelled an extraordinary tale of high class smuggling around Sydney harbour and police collusion, and the truth behind one of the most infamous cold cases in Australia. Except there were actually two gruesome murders... 'the biggest tabloid shark story in the history of the world' - Peter Fitzsimons

            The explosive memoir of the two legendary drug enforcement agents responsible for taking down Pablo Escobar and the subject of the hit Netflix series `Narcos'. Javier Pena and Steve Murphy risked their lives hunting large and small drug traffickers in the decades they spent worki...ng for the US Drug Enforcement Administration. But their biggest challenge was the hunt for Pablo Escobar in Colombia. The partners, who began their careers as small-town cops, have been immortalised in Netflix's `Narcos', a fictionalised account of their hunt for Escobar. Now, for the first time, they tell the real story of how they brought down the world's first narco-terrorist and ended the reign of terror of the world's most wanted criminal. Manhunters takes you deep inside the inner workings of the Search Bloc, the joint Colombian-US task force that resulted in an intensive 18-month operation that tracked Escobar. Between July 1992 and December 1993, Pena and Murphy lived on the edge, setting up camp in Medellin at the Carlos Holguin Military Academy. There, they lived and worked with the Colombian authorities, hunting down a man thought to be untouchable. Their terrifying first-hand experience coupled with stories from the DEA's de-classified files on the search for Escobar forms the beating heart of Manhunters, a gripping account of how two determined and courageous agents risked everything to capture the world's most wanted man. Praise for Manhunters`A riveting account of two brave DEA Agents who put their lives, along with their families' lives, on the line to fight the war on drugs.

            On the scorching February day in 2009 that became known as Black Saturday, a man lit two fires in Victoria's Latrobe Valley, then sat on the roof of his house to watch the inferno. In the Valley, where the rates of crime were the highest in the state, more than thirty people were... known to police as firebugs. But the detectives soon found themselves on the trail of a man they didn't know. The Arsonist takes readers on the hunt for this man, and inside the strange puzzle of his mind. It is also the story of fire in this country, and of a community that owed its existence to that very element. The command of fire has defined and sustained us as a species - understanding its abuse will define our future. A powerful real-life thriller written with Hooper's trademark lyric detail and nuance, The Arsonist is a reminder that in an age of fire, all of us are gatekeepers.
