              Birth. Death. Wonder ... One woman's journey to the edge of love and loyalty from the bestselling author of The Lace Weaver London, 1702. When her husband is lost at sea, Mary Burton Gulliver, midwife and herbalist, is forced to rebuild her life without him. But three years later... when Lemuel Gulliver is brought home, fevered and communicating only in riddles, her ordered world is turned upside down. In a climate of suspicion, poverty and violence, Mary is caught in a crossfire of superstition and fear driven by her husband's outlandish claims of the wonders he has seen, and it is up to her to navigate a passage to safety for herself and her daughter, and the vulnerable women in her care. But when a fellow sailor, a dangerous man with nothing to lose, appears to hold sway over her husband, Mary's world descends deeper into chaos, and she must set out on her own journey to discover the truth of Gulliver's travels ... and the landscape of her own heart. Praise for The Lace Weaver : `A beautifully written and utterly compelling story of love and war ... exquisite as the lace the women of the story weave.' Kate Forsyth

              Number One New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs returns with her nineteenth riveting novel featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, who must use all her tradecraft to discover the identity of a faceless corpse, its connection to a decade-old missing child c...ase, and why the dead man had her phone number. It's sweltering in Charlotte, North Carolina and Temperance Brennan, still recovering from neurosurgery following an aneurysm, is battling nightmares, migraines, and what she thinks might be hallucinations when she receives a series of mysterious text messages, each containing a new picture of a corpse that is missing its face and hands. Immediately, she's anxious to know who the dead man is, and why the images were sent to her. An identified corpse soon turns up, only partly answering her questions. To win answers to the others, including the man's identity, she must go rogue. With help from a number of law enforcement associates including her Montreal beau Andrew Ryan and the always-ready-with-a-smart-quip, ex-homicide investigator Skinny Slidell, and utilizing new cutting-edge forensic methods, Tempe draws closer to the astonishing truth. But the more she uncovers, the darker and more twisted the picture becomes ... Praise for Kathy Reichs: 'Kathy Reichs writes smart-no, make that brilliant-mysteries that are as realistic as non-fiction and as fast-paced as the best thrillers about Jack Reacher or Alex Cross' James Patterson 'Nobody does forensics thrillers like Kathy Reichs. She's the real deal' David Baldacci 'Kathy Reichs continues to be one of the most distinctive and talented writers in the genre. Her legions of readers worldwide will agree with me when I declare that the more books she writes, the more enthusiastic fans she'll garner' Sandra Brown 'Each book in Kathy Reichs's fantastic Temperance Brennan series is better than the last. They're filled with riveting twists andturns. No matter how many novels she writes, I just can't get

              This dark and dazzling debut introduces a fabulously flawed and determined heroine reminiscent of Jane Tennison. She was slipping away. The further she fell, the closer the clouds seemed to come. Wispy transparent slipstreams of white. Cirrus. Pain smashed her head. Floating... W...hen journalist Chrissie O'Brian lands a senior job at The Argus, she is desperate to escape the nightmares of her past and make a fresh start. Her life may be a mess but her job is something she can do better than anyone else - and the only thing that's keeping her sane, and in this world. A battle brewing on the waterfront between big business and the union is just the kind of headlinegrabbing story to get her career back on track. But when a female dockworker whose warnings Chrissie ignored turns up dead, she blames herself and becomes obsessed with investigating the case. But she is handicapped by her daily battle to resist numbing the pain of her past with alcohol and pills - a battle she doesn't always win. After a gruesome threat lands on her desk and another worker is killed, Chrissie knows she is close to the truth, perhaps too close. When it's clear someone will do anything to stop her publishing the story, Chrissie decides it's time to take matters into her own hands. 'A gritty tale full of twists, Where The Truth Lies is a page turner packed with compelling characters. An exciting new voice in Australian crime fiction.' Jane Harper, bestselling author of The Dry

              In the bestselling tradition of THE GIRL FROM MUNICH and THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ, an extraordinary tale based on the true story of how the author's mother survived World War II against all odds. In 1946 two young Hungarian refugees arrive in Naples determined to start a new li...fe after losing everyone they loved before the war. Vera Frankel and her best friend, Edith Ban, are haunted by their terrifying escape from a train headed for Auschwitz after their mothers threw them from the carriage, promising they would follow. But instead the girls found themselves alone in a frozen, alien land. They managed to find refuge and barter for their lives by working on an isolated farm in Austria until the end of the war. Armed with a letter of recommendation from an American general, Vera finds work and new hope at the United States Embassy and, despite her best intentions, falls in love the handsome and enigmatic Captain Anton Wight. But as Vera and Edith grapple with the aftermath of the war, so too does Anton, and when he suddenly disappears, Vera is forced to drastically change course. Their quest to overcome their terrible losses and rebuild their lives takes Vera and Edith from Naples to Ellis Island to Venezuela and finally Sydney as they begin to build careers, reunite with old friends - and find love. Heartbreakingly moving and compelling, THE LIGHT AFTER THE WAR is inspired by the story of the author's Holocaust survivor mother and her escape with her best friend from a train to Auschwitz. Praise for The Light After the War`You will be swept away by this fast-paced, heartbreaking and hopeful tale of friendship, family, second chances and the enduring power of love, based on the true story of the author's mother in war-torn Europe.'

              Four women join forces to survive the invasion of Paris with conviction, courage - and style France, April 1940. Polly Hartford has been sent across oceans to her Aunt Marjorie, known only from letters. When Marjorie dies in suspicious circumstances, Polly is left with her aunt's... loaded pistol in a beautiful Hermes handbag - and to the care of Marjorie's three friends: an elegant Comtesse, a gutter-born film star, and a big-hearted American heiress. Polly is taken to live at the Hotel Ritz, where those who live there think money protects them from war ... But when the Nazis invade, the illusion is shattered. As Paris deteriorates, Polly and her guardians face the horrors of the Occupation with courage, humour, style - even romance - and discover just what they are capable of. As the Liberation approaches, those who survive must face a day of reckoning, but one truth stands tall: at the heart of the Ritz is the soul of resistance. A dramatic story about conviction and courage, drawn from real characters and extraordinary events.
