              The powerful, inspiring memoir of life under fire and the battle back from the brink by a man who has seen conflict around the world Grant Edwards was once an elite athlete, Olympics qualifier and Australia's strongest man. His Guinness Book of Records feats of strength were accl...aimed internationally, and as a high ranking police officer he spent decades protecting vulnerable people around the world. But nothing could shield him from catastrophic harm in the line of duty. Rising above his tough beginnings in 1970s suburbia, Edwards found sanctuary in elite sport. But he found his true calling with the Australian Federal Police, rising swiftly through the ranks to Commander and personally establishing cybercrime units to fight child exploitation and human trafficking. A highly sought after and disciplined security advisor for governments around the world such as East Timor, Afghanistan and the Americas, Edwards was considered the last person to `crack' - but a narrow escape from a deadly attack in Kabul pushed him to breaking point. This is the story of an extraordinary man and his extraordinary battle back from the brink.

              When Russian president Maxim Krupin discovers that he has inoperable brain cancer, he's determined to cling to power. His first task is to kill or imprison any of his countrymen who can threaten him. Soon, though, his illness becomes serious enough to require a more dramatic dive...rsion - war with the West. Upon learning of Krupin's condition, CIA director Irene Kennedy understands that the US is facing an opponent who has nothing to lose. The only way to avoid a confrontation that could leave millions dead is to send Mitch Rapp to Russia under impossibly dangerous orders. With the Kremlin's entire security apparatus hunting him, he must find and kill a man many have deemed the most powerful in the world. Success means averting a war that could consume all of Europe. But if his mission is discovered, Rapp will plunge Russia and America into a conflict that neither will survive.

              A Dream About Lightning Bugs: A Life of Music and Cheap Lessons

              Reflections on art, life, and music from the genre-defying icon, in a memoir that is as nuanced, witty and relatable as his cult-classic songs. Ben Folds is a celebrated American singer-songwriter and frontman of the alternative rock band Ben Folds Five, beloved for songs such as... `Brick', `You Don't Know Me' and `The Luckiest'. In A Dream About Lightning Bugs, he looks back on his life in a charming, funny and wise chronicle of his artistic coming-of-age, infused with the wry observations of a natural storyteller. He opens up about finding his voice as a musician, becoming a rock anti-hero, and hauling a baby grand piano around for every performance. From growing up in working class North Carolina, to painful life lessons learned the hard way, he also ruminates on creativity in the digital age, the absurdity of life on the road, and the challenges of sustaining a multi-decade career in the music business. A Dream about Lightning Bugs embodies what Folds has been singing about for years: Smile like you've got nothing to prove, because it hurts to grow up, but everybody does, and life flies by in seconds.

              A fascinating, funny and downright bizarre history of food by one of Australia's best-loved comedians In this irreverent romp through history via the seven deadly sins, Mikey Robins uncovers the most bizarre food-related facts of all time. From the Ancient Egyptians to the Romans..., and from the medieval monarchs to the first celebrity chefs, our ancestors have left their mark ... and show us that wherever there is food there is folly. In Gluttony, Mikey exposes our historic obsession with overconsumption and food waste, and Pride reveals some of the most arrogant dinner hosts in history and how the humble chef has now achieved rock god status. Lust shows us just about every aphrodisiac there has been and the most desired foods in history; and Sloth is about the shocking rise of fast food and the history of preservatives. We hear of the revolution that led to the birth of the modern restaurant; we learn about the accidental invention of the microwave; we see how the pineapple gained sacred status; we learn about the `Sin Eaters', the world's most famous `Gluttons' and the most deadly `Poisoners' of all time.

              The bestselling author of The Party returns with a chilling new domestic drama Frances Metcalfe is struggling to stay afloat. A stay-at-home mom whose troubled son is her full-time job, she thought that the day he got accepted into the elite Forrester Academy would be the day she... started living her life. Overweight, insecure, and lonely, she is desperate to fit into Forrester's world. But after a disturbing incident at the school leads the other children and their families to ostracize the Metcalfes, she feels more alone than ever before. Until she meets Kate Randolph. Kate is everything Frances is not: beautiful, wealthy, powerful, and confident. And for some reason, she's not interested in being friends with any of the other Forrester moms-only Frances. As the two bond over their disdain of the Forrester snobs and the fierce love they have for their sons, a startling secret threatens to tear them apart...because one of these women is not who she seems. Her real name is Amber Kunik. And she's a murderer. In her masterful second novel, Robyn Harding spins a web of lies, deceit and betrayal. Can people ever change? And even if they can, is it possible to forgive the past?
