              Forensic psychiatrist Donald Grant asks what it is about murder that fascinates us. Is it a chill whisper of fear reminding us we too can kill?Grant describes ten true murder cases, each different, each complex, each with unique triggers. Fact leaves fiction for dead. For those d...irectly affected, murder is a sombre and scarring event. For most of us, murder is an arm's length experience, close enough to frighten and fascinate yet far enough not to traumatise.Grant proposes that our restless chatter about it, our state of heightened alert, our endless viewing, may be play therapy, reassuring us that our own killer instinct is under control.

              Michelle Payne rode into history as the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup. She and her 100-to-1 local horse Pirate of Penzance took the international racing world by surprise but hers was no overnight success story. Michelle was first put on a horse aged five. By seven... she was doing track work. Aged nine she said her greatest dream would be to win the Melbourne Cup. All of the ten Payne children learned to ride racehorses but Michelle has stayed the distance. She has ridden the miles, done the dawn training, fallen badly and each time got back on the horse. So when she declared that anyone who said women couldn't compete in the industry could 'get stuffed', the nation stood up and cheered. Michelle has the audacity to believe she can succeed against all the odds. Her story is about hope triumphing over adversity, and how resilience and character made a winner.

              As president of the Human Rights Commission, Gillian Triggs advocated for the disempowered, the disenfranchised, the marginalised. She withstood relentless political pressure and media scrutiny as she defended the defenceless for five tumultuous years. How did this aspiring balle...t dancer, dignified daughter of a tank commander and eminent law academic respond when appreciative passengers on a full airplane departing Canberra greeted her with a round of applause? Speaking Up shares with readers the values that have guided Triggs' convictions and the causes she has championed. She dares women to be a little vulgar and men to move beyond their comfort zones to achieve equity for all. And she will not rest until Australia has a Bill of Rights. Triggs' passionate memoir is an irresistible call to everyone who yearns for a fairer world.
