              With his debut novel, the award-winning The Zookeeper's War, Steven Conte showed himself to be a significant Australian author. With this, his powerful, densely rich and deeply affecting second novel, he now steps up into the ranks of our finest writers. In the final days of the ...doomed German invasion of Russia in WWII, a German military doctor, Paul Bauer, is assigned to establish a field hospital at Yasnaya Polyana - the former grand estate of Count Leo Tolstoy, the author of the classic War and Peace. There he encounters a hostile aristocratic Russian woman, Katerina Trusbetzkaya, a writer who has been left in charge of the estate. But even as a tentative friendship develops between them, Bauer's hostile and arrogant commanding officer, Julius Metz, starts becoming steadily more preoccupied and unhinged as the war turns against the Germans. Over the course of six weeks, in the terrible winter of 1941, everything starts to unravel... From the critically acclaimed and award-winning author, Steven Conte, The Tolstoy Estate is ambitious, accomplished and astonishingly good: an engrossing, intense and compelling exploration of the horror and brutality of conflict, and the moral, emotional, physical and intellectual limits that people reach in war time. It is also a poignant, bittersweet love story - and, most movingly, a novel that explores the notion that literature can still be a potent force for good in our world.

              An extraordinary, award-winning debut, a story of passion and sacrifice in a city battered by war. Winner of the inaugural Prime Minister's Literary Award, and shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Christina Stead Award for Fiction. In wartime Berlin, who can you... trust? 1943: Each night in a bomb shelter beneath the Berlin Zoo an Australian woman, Vera, shelters with her German husband, Axel, the zoo's director. Together, they struggle to look after the animals through the air raids and food shortages. When the zoo's staff is drafted into the army, forced labourers are sent in as replacements. At first, Vera finds the idea abhorrent, but gradually she realises that the new workers are the zoo's only hope, and forms an unlikely bond with one of them. But Berlin is a city where a foreign accent is a constant source of suspicion, where busybodies report the names of neighbours' dinner guests to the Gestapo. As tensions mount in the closing days of the war, nothing, and no one, it seems, can be trusted. The Zookeeper's War is a powerful novel of a marriage, and of a city collapsing. It confronts not only the brutality of war but the possibility of heroism - and delivers an ending that is both shocking and deeply moving. 'Beautifully textured and extremely well realised ... a clever, inspired, insightful, tension-filled drama' Bookseller + Publisher

              How much money is enough? How powerful do you want to be? And what price will it extract from you? An intriguing, powerful and hardhitting novel of the world of finance, big business and dealmaking, written by a leading business insider. Charles lives in the testosterone-driven, ...high-powered, brutal world of investment banking. It is a world dominated by money, deals, bonuses, backstabbing, endless front and manoeuvring, bluff, bravado and savagery. Charles is a master of this world. Each day he shrugs on a metaphorical suit of armour and goes out into a dog-eat-dog world to do deals. He's a man who is used to casual brutality after all - his childhood saw to that. But there is a price to pay. Charles has put that armour on, piece by heavy, painful piece, in order to survive his childhood first, and then the casual brutality of his chosen world. He's learnt - through his childhood and through the vicious cut and thrust of the deal-making years - to keep his armour on at all times. But now, at the peak of his career, his armour is rusted and bloodstained and no longer protecting him the way it used to. He finds himself empty. Always cold. No friends. A distant wife. Children who barely know him. Over the course of two days, everything in Charles' life comes into question. His carefully constructed world is starting to splinter apart - and he's splintering too. All these compromises he's accepted, all the careful arrangements he's made and all the rigid structures he's allowed to calcify around him, are no longer holding together - the centre, crucially, is not holding, to use Yeats' phrase. This is a story of a man whose world is falling apart - and the very start of his putting it back together. Shocking and at times immensely moving, Man in Armour is a compelling novel, written with a sharp-eyed, incisive focus that also carries real emotional - and moral - resonance. Written by an ultimate business insider - a woman who knows intimately and at first hand this worl

How much does luck, fate and chance play its part? What is the difference between life and death? What separates the quick and the dead?

              Tall tales of New Zealand bushmen, tradies and back-country rouges Mike Bellamy's father Barry is as tough as they come. Widely credited as the inspiration for Barry Crump's back-country character Sam Cash, Barry was a roving worker in rural North Island during the 50s, 60s and 7...0s. Tough Country is a book about a father by a son, about a bygone era of bushmen, scrub-cutters, hunters and shepherds. It's also a book about the author's own life working the land, and the characters of the 80s and 90s, from tradies and digger-drivers to drain-layers and wharfies.
